Luxurious Korean Day Spa in Virginia

Welcome to King Spa in Virginia – your luxurious day spa getaway. An oasis where all can come to heal and feel. Experience rest and rejuvenation like you never have before as you melt stress away in our state-of-the-art facility and indulge in whole mind and body healing.

Since 2001, King Spa has been providing communities with an authentic Korean spa experience like no other. As the first true Korean spa to open in the United States, King Spa knows a thing or two about resting, healing, and rejuvenating. Our founder, Byung T. Kim wanted to bring a piece of Korean culture with him when he immigrated to the U.S. to share with others. So, he opened King Spa – a world-class day spa, sauna, and bathhouse. Known in Korea as jjim-jil-bang, these public bathhouses have been a prominent aspect of Korean culture since the 15th century and offer a place for individuals, couples, and families to come and receive a deep cleanse, detox, and total mind/body restoration.

We welcome you to come and visit King Spa in Virginia and experience ultimate relaxation yourself.

Best Spa 2024

King Spa has ten unique saunas and therapy rooms, including an ice room, which use different minerals to induce specific healing actions in the body and mind. We have a sauna or therapy room for every human ailment, including arthritis, pain, headaches, fatigue, aging, skin issues, depression, anxiety, weak immune function, and many more! The natural minerals used in our rooms encourage healing by boosting the immune system, promoting lymph and blood flow, cleansing the organs, dilating the blood vessels, and more. The type of mineral used in the sauna determines the healing action. With so much to offer, you’ll surely find a room for you. And if saunas aren’t calling to you, don’t worry – you can find comfort in our hydrotherapy pools, steam rooms, day spa baths, relaxation areas, or treatment rooms. And if you get hungry, you can visit our dining hall, where you can explore our extensive menu of authentic Korean dishes and beverages, along with typical American treats.

What to Expect During Your Visit to King Spa

We pride ourselves on being a truly authentic Korean spa in Virginia that uses traditional methods in our saunas, therapies, and treatments to help you relieve stress and invite in whole-body healing. Koreans have a long history of holistic health and wellness rooted in ancient traditions, which is why self-care rituals are deeply ingrained in the culture (and one of the reasons why Koreans are known for having flawless skin). At King Spa, we make it easy for anyone to indulge in all-day pampering while experiencing our unique culture and way of life.

With so many saunas, pools, spas, and therapy rooms at King Spa (the largest Korean spa in Virginia), it can be slightly overwhelming for first-time visitors to figure out how to navigate our three-story korean day spa and where they should begin and end. So, we’ve outlined an ideal itinerary for you. Feel free to adjust it how you see fit (it’s just a suggestion, after all). Our main goal is for you to thoroughly enjoy your experience at King Spa.

Your Recommended Wellness Itinerary

  1. Check-In: You’ll enter our lobby, where you’ll check in and receive your bracelet with your locker number and key that you’ll need to keep with you throughout your entire visit (this is how you’ll be charged for services, food, beverages, etc.). You’ll then be directed to either the women’s or men’s locker room to change and begin your wellness journey.
  2. Change: Inside the locker room, you’ll first place your shoes in a locker before grabbing your uniform and finding your assigned locker, where you will change and store your belongings.
  3. Sweat it out: With ten unique saunas and therapy rooms to choose from, you can spend many hours sweating and detoxing. We recommend choosing just 2-3 saunas to get the most out of using them. Try to spend at least 30 minutes at a time in each one. But we won’t judge you if you find yourself tempted to try them all!
  4. Soak it up: After you’ve thoroughly detoxed in the saunas, you can then head to the sex-segregated spas to shower. And for further relaxation, you can soak in the hot tubs, cold pool, and steam room, or you can head to the second level to enjoy our indoor and outdoor therapeutic pools and hot tubs.
  5. Treat Yourself: Last on the recommended itinerary, but definitely not least, is to book yourself one or two of our many Korean spa services, such as a massage, body scrub, facial, or V-steam, for further rest and rejuvenation. And if you’re looking for a truly authentic Korean spa treatment like no other (and you’re feeling extra curious about some serious skincare), you’ll definitely want to try out our Korean body scrub, which is really the main focus of a Korean spa.
