Spa LaQua Jeonju Hot Spring

Spa LaQua Jeonju Hot Spring


There is a hot spring, sauna, spa, food, plenty of shopping, sweet relaxation and aroma massages in a Hanok-style house built with yellow clay, and even outdoor swimming facilities. To fully enjoy Spa LaQua Jeonju Hot Spring it is not a bad idea to make a list of things to do. After a quick shower, start your course with an aroma massage. You can get the massage in a Hanok-style space that was built with yellow clay. When your muscles relax and your blood circulates nicely, it is easier for the body to release toxins during spas and hot water baths.

From barley stones in salt rooms and saunas

This place offers five different spas. The “Light and Salt Room” uses Himalayan salt stones and far-infrared rays. When you lay down on the 45 ℃ stone floor, it doesn't take long until you start sweating. And when you get too hot, you can go straight to the cold spa next door. Your damp body dries again in no time In the anion room and the Hanoki room the body regains some heat. Anions are vitamins in the air, and the sheer fact of being in that room makes you feel refreshed. The temperature in the Hanoki room is 35 ℃ , a nice temperature to stay a while and enjoy the smell of cedar wood. After the second floor tour it is time for a break in the “Healing House.” Sunlight floods the space through a huge window and creates a nice, quiet atmosphere. The spa highlight, however, is on the third floor, the “Nokju Stone Charcoal Room.” Nokju stone is known to have a stronger heeling effect than other stones and is often referred to as the “Mystery Stone.” It is created at 1380 ℃ and lies in the charcoal room to aid skin care, metabolism, and the immune system. It is even said to have a positive effect on cancer treatments. People from all over the country come here for this one. After a good sweating session it's time to visit the food stalls on the third floor. The space awaits its visitors with a Joseon Dynasty concept and offers various restaurants, from Korean cuisine and Western food to flour-based snacks and other menus. Especially popular is the bulgogi ssambap rice set and the spinach pizza that is topped with really fresh spinach. Every night, there's an exciting dance class in the GX Room. For a set price, anybody interested can join and learn how to dance. The end of the spa vacation is the hot spring sauna. Natural alkaline hydrogen carbonate springs out from 889.71m deep underground bedrock at 26.5℃. As you move from the hydrogen carbonate open-air hot spring bath to the bathing pool and the Hinoki foot bath and back, you will find yourself with softer skin in no time.

After a lot of sweat, I go to the fourth floor lowland. The restaurant is based on the traditional low-dining style of the Joseon Dynasty, which has been warm and friendly, and offers various menus such as Korean, Western, and Korean foods. Spinach pizza, which is a popular menu of Bulgogi ssabab, and topped with raw spinach, is delicious. When the meal is over, the GX room connected to the lodge is shimmering. It is time to take a zoom bar at 8 pm. Although it operates as a member, spa users can also choose to participate in the Fun package. The light that is just as good as the club glistens to the rhythm. If you step on your step, you will have an hour to go. It is the hot spring sauna that the finish of delightful time that everyone seems to be happy is by all means. At the 889.71m underground rock of the Spa Laqua Jeonju Hot Spring, natural alkaline hydrogen carbonate spring water of 26.5 ℃ comes out. Hydrogen carbonate Open-air baths, Bade pools, and Hinoki baths. Spa LaQua Jeonju Hot Spring is constantly taking care of various programs by taking a point for the pleasure of the customer. As a result, it became a real 'healing place' to look back because customers were sad to leave.

Eat, enjoy and go to the spa

The water park on the fourth floor shows movies every night at 9 o'clock. And what better addition to a movie is there than chicken and beer? The chicken here has even gained some recognition throughout the city. Another must is the stone-cooked eggs, which take four days in the Nokju Stone Charcoal Room, in combination with a traditional sweet pumpkin rice drink. The beverage contains only old pumpkin, sweet pumpkin and malt, and no other additives. You might actually come back to Jeonju's Spa LaQua Jeonju Hot Spring just for this.

Enjoy a Korean-Style Hot Spring in a Hanok
Spa LaQua Jeonju Hot Spring

Spa LaQua is a combination of the word “spa,” “pleasure,” and “aqua.“ The five-story building is decorated in the style of hanok (traditional Korean house). The hot spring on the first floor, which uses hydrogen carbonate spring water, is equipped with standing and sitting shower facilities, different kinds of baths, as well as wet and dry saunas. A total of five baths are available: basic hot and cold baths; a nanobubble bath with bubbles that gives guests a massage; a Bade pool that offers a water massage using high hydraulic pressure; and a natural open-air bath that is connected with the indoor baths. The outdoor bath keeps the water at 70℃, so you can enjoy a warm bath even on a rainy or snowy day. The highlights of the second floor are the traditional hanok experience room and the GX program. There are five hanok experience rooms that are a perfect replication of the classic, traditional Korean residence. They not only feature giwa (roof tiles) and toenmaru (narrow wooden porch) but the rooms were also built with red clay and pinewood. The fitness center located next to the café runs various GX programs including Zumba dance, body skill, and yoga. Visitors can also watch movies in the DVD room. Among the various foods available, the fried chicken of the cafeteria on the third floor and the roasted eggs sold on the fourth floor are particularly popular.

Enjoy Magnificent Views of the Jeonju Hanok Village
Jeonju Omokdae

Omokdae is where General Yi Seong-gye of the Goryeo Dynasty held a feast after winning a war. Later, he founded the Joseon Dynasty and built a pavilion in this place. The name Omokdae came from the large presence of odong-namu (paulownia trees) found nearby. Climbing a forest path from the hanok village leads you to Omokdae Pavilion. The pavilion stays cool even under the summer heat with thick trees hanging over it. Along the trail are a few viewpoints installed where guests can enjoy panoramic views of the village.   6, Taejo-ro, Wansan-gu, Jeonju-si, Jeollabuk-do / +82-63-281-2114 / www.jeonju.go.kr
