Here, you are ushered into a world of Korean culture reminiscent of the very popular Korean telenovelas that you look forward to. Precious and semi-precious stones like amethyst, jade, sapphire, topaz used for their healing properties abound.

Three very unique honey bee comb shaped dome structures which are actually hot saunas provide a misen-scene backdrop of a traditional Korean village. These charming dome structures are sanctuaries of wellness that utilize thermal therapy, an age old tradition being practiced in Korea, Japan and many European countries. The 3 dry saunas are made of dome clay a healing mud from volcanoes that stimulates blood circulation and increases metabolism, salt and charcoal sauna made of salt crystals and Hwangto know for its detoxifying properties. Think of how we usually place charcoal in our refrigerators to remove toxins and odors, the charcoal cleanses the body of such toxins and impurities. The oak and clay sauna made of oakwood and hwangto have been proven to intensify the body’s curing process. My favorite room is the one with a temperature of -11 degrees where real snow abounds. Enter here for that cooling down, or frozen delight experience where you are tired muscles and tissues recover from fatigue and stress. In this ice room, stare at the ceiling peppered with real amethyst, topaz, sapphires and other valuable stones.
