Lonely Planet review for Dragon Hill Spa
This new luxury spa is spread out over seven floors. In addition to outdoor baths, charcoal saunas, crystal salt rooms and ginseng and cedar baths, there is a golf driving range, cinema and rooftop garden with an Indian Barbeque Village. The outdoor unisex pool is perfect for families. The spacious interior is a beguiling mix of gaudy Las Vegas bling and Asian chic – there’s a sauna shaped like the pyramids but also a bamboo forest lit up with neon green lights. There’s always a smattering of foreigners – Russian models, Filipino migrant workers and Western English teachers. The staff speak basic English and many signs are in English. Exit into Yongsan train station, leave by Exit 1, turn right past IPark Mall and look for the signs. The entrance is through the bamboo grove.
