|Our Hotel attached to Spa Castle|
You guys remember when I talked about Spa Castle? In this post, I'll share my experience I had there when I went with Kevin earlier this week.
Located just across the street from the Korean supermarket H-Mart is Spa Castle which is a nice combination of traditional detoxifying Asian saunas and luxurious European water spas. What you will notice going into the spas is that the ancient forms of meditation are reinforced through some various forms such as their lounging rooms, heated pools, and more. Kevin took me here as a way for us to enjoy our holiday break together. We booked the standard room and for a standard...I was highly impressed.
|The bed actually lights up at night throughout the headboard and frame.|
The Lavender area was where they did massages, facials, manicures, you name it. We didn't go here but when my sister's bday gets here I will probably spoil her to this spot ^ ^
Stupid Tosh.O was on while we were eating...really bad idea since we saw some nasty shit on those episodes they were airing. So gross!
These were how the saunas looked like from the outside. Pretty interesting looking domes.
A side note, if you are a contact or eyeglass wearer please take off your lenses and leave them in your lockers because you will do damage to your eyes if you have in your contacts and the material may not be the same afterwards. If you have any coatings on your glasses they may be ruined as well so that's just a word of caution because we saw no signs of this for people there.
This was the lounge room. Those things attached to the chairs are mini tvs. They had Korean channels and some American ones but there was no more than 10 total. Here was where they had nice heated floors! I would have spent more time here but we ended up getting some shaved ice dessert after the saunas pretty much wore us out.
As expected, the saddest moment of my time here was leaving. Being there with Kevin for my first time made it that much more enjoyable to me. You all should go if you live in the DFW area or if you ever come down for a visit. It's worth it. Admission is $35 and you get to be there for 24 hours after you check in. We got it for free since we had vouchers from H-mart and will probably go again before Feb. 8th since he got two others.
I thought I'd share this other event he and I are going to go to at Fair Park called The Chinese Lantern Festival. Have you guys ever gone to something like this? It looks so cool! I found a video from last year's festival that they had.
