Niles >King Spa & Sauna
“The decor and furniture is beautiful and it makes me feel like I'm at some fancy hotel!”
“If you order a meal, they give you all sorts of side dishes with it.”
Queen of the Spa. Great space for a day of relaxation with the girlfriends. I've gone now to 2 King Spas (Niles and NJ) both amazing. It's a big jarring at first to see everyone so naked but you have to suck it up and get over it. No one is there to look at you or judge, we just want to relax. The food is decent korean food but it's a combination package..wifi, food, massages.
Love King Spa. This is a sweet cultural thing and the children seem to be happy and peaceful at this spa. The environment provides a great place for families w/ young children for appreciating self care, bonding and closeness. I was impressed that the nudity was not an issue for the kids on any of my many visits to the spa. I can't be surprised that some people may find it a problem that there are no special indulgences for children. The cleanliness, calm and excellent spa services plus the waters make it my favorite!
Not a place for family with children!. This place is not a kid-friendly environment and yet they say it's for families. From the entrance, the staff told me to discipline the child to be quiet when my son hasn't even done anything. Since the dry saunas were too hot for my son, I wondered around with him in the public area and I encountered several different discrimination. There's really no area and no activity for younger children. I had a terrible experience!
A very noisy place. Tried to relax in several of the various dry heat saunas and always seemed to be surrounded by small groups on non-descript women constantly whispering very loudly. And I mean an extremely loud constant whisper! They are non-stop and do not come up for air!
I really wanted to like it, visiting several times always hoping it would be a little more peaceful... Also, it has a lot less than any health club, as it only offers a series of dry saunas, a couple nude hot-tubs and public open-air showers. I don't get it, but the owners are smiling all the way!
Oh, there are a bunch of plastic-upholstered chairs with people sitting around loudly murmuring or passed-out in the sweat-drenched required uniforms...
Amazing for aching muscles.
This was my first time and it was amazing! It was an effort to avoid urgent care after a rough fall. It was the perfect therapy and I left feeling better than I thought was possible.
The facilities were immaculately clean and top notch quality. The staff was very attentive and helpful. I really enjoyed myself and want to bring my girlfriend next time.
Being nude in front of others was a first (since gym class), but the decorum and attitudes of the other bathers made it much easier. Don't let it scare you away!
I will be a loyal customer after such a great experience.
I had a wonderful experience at King Spa and am looking forward to going back asap!
I must admit, I had to get over the idea of being nude in the pool/steam sauna/scrub area, but once I did I had my best spa experience to date. The facilities were very clean and the staff extremely attentive. I made the mistake of not putting my shoulder length hair up and was approached almost immediately by an attendant with a rubber band. Everyone is required to shower before entering the pool area. Ladies, you MUST get the body scrub! Once you grow accustomed to the fact that you're lying naked on a rubber bed and being scrubbed down by a korean woman wearing loofa mitts, you can enjoy having a full body exfoliation. After the scrubbing part is finished, the woman washes you and you soon realize that (as my friend put it) this must be what it feels like to be a baby and have someone give you a bath. My skin has never felt softer or cleaner. She then washed my hair and off I went into the steam sauna again. After a quick shower we were given our guest uniforms (pink tshirt and shorts) and headed to the co-ed lounge are where I received a wonderful 90 minute acupressure massage. I felt like a noodle afterward. We then headed to the food court where a delicious lunch was waiting for us. We hit almost all of the dry saunas - from hot to cold. I enjoyed the salt room the best.
My bill was extremely reasonable for what I received and am looking forward to becoming a regular there!
Great!. King Spa is amazing! One of the best place to relax and destress! Highly recommend!
exelent. A trip to the spa should be a relaxing, blissful experience, but if it's your first visit, it can be slightly nerve-wracking not knowing what to expect. The following tips on spa protocol 101 will remind you to mind your p's and q's even while you're being pampered--and act as a manual to make the most out of your first spa-going encounter.
Great Place!. It is a must for all. Very therapeutic. Never felt much better after my visit. The steam room is absolutely terrific. The various sauna's accomplish what they are set up for. It is worth every dollar spent.
Best Korean spa in Chicago. When on vacation in Chicago stumbled upon King Spa. Very similar to Spa Castle in NYC (that I frequent often). Amazingly clean facility and a all inclusive experience. Just bring yourself...or a friend and spend hours. Open 24/7 Love it!
