Ok, so...the first feeling that you might have is one of apprehension because it is, of course, the "naked spa," from what you might have heard. I get it. I was initially afraid to go because I had some reservations about letting my girly parts fly free. But honey, let me tell you...YOU...CAN...DO...IT!! I have now been about 4 times... More

Yes, you will be naked. . . and then dressed badly. But that's part of the fun of King Spa. The lockerroom/steamroom/shower areas, which are not coed, require you to be naked. Good for them. Enough with the puritanical body shaming in this country. All shapes and sizes. Who cares! Then, for the coed areas, you are issued shorts and... More

I was initially suppose to be in Cabo for my birthday, but due to circumstances out of my control I was unable to go. However, I had received a $250 gift card for King Spa for Christmas, so I decided to go cash it in on my birthday. I'm so glad I did. I had one of the best experiences... More

My wife and I visited while in town. We went on Saturday night and of course the spa was very busy. We spent about 4 -5 hours here. I lost track of time I spent most of my time in the saunas and it was a very relaxing experience. Except when two people came in and did nothing but talk... More

The only reason I cannot rate King Spa in Niles higher, and I've gone here 3-4 times every winter for the past several years, is that the staff act like your very presence is irritating to them. The price is VERY reasonable, at less than $30 for 24 hours. (YES, this place is open 24 hours a day, though the... More

I can't tell you how many people I've turned on to King Spa in Niles. Simply put, King Spa is a then park of saunas. What used to be an old Pet Smart was completely revamped into a spa wonderland of eight themed dry co-ed saunas, with inviting spa tub and steam sauna separate areas for men and women. I... More

I want to preface by saying that I may be slightly biased having frequented some very nice jimjilbangs in Korea. This particular spa was very very similar to those in Korea, but it could use some improvements. The actual bath area could benefit from more pools, perhaps with herbs or healing properties in them. The saunas are very nice, but... More

Definitely one of the most unique spa experiences I've had. Some parts of the spa have separate men's and women's areas, while other areas are unisex. It's pretty cheap to get in (check their website for specials -- ticket for the whole day was $22. which got you everything expect body treatments and food). You can spend as little as... More

Went here for the first time with a friend. Started with baths which are segregated and vary in temp from cold to unbearably hot, then you move to the steam room. Once finished there you out on a uniform, and head out to the coed area which have 10 or so different rooms to relax in, a food court with... More

I can't believe it has been 3 years. Life just get too busy. Again, the wet room was nice, the hot tubs could have been hotter, but still nice. I had a body scrub again, great! The sauna were nice as well. A new area, called the O2 room was very relaxing, i real felt more O2 and slept for... More
