Hit the sauna!
We could all use some well-deserved R & R. In the town of Carrollton just north of Dallas is the Spa Castle, a hidden bathhouse palace. [Featured image:@nauraloller]
Spa Castle in Carrollton is like the amusement park version of a spa, only instead of rides they have Himalayan salt rooms and hydrotherapy pools. The innovative spa blends together traditional Asian and European styles to create a fun and luxury experience all on its own.
The luxury spa offers copious amenities for spa and sauna treatment, relaxation, and entertainment. Its bath and lounge area is equipped with dry and wet sauna rooms, four traditional Asian-and-European-influenced mineral pools, and a lounge area where ice-cold beverages await. Sauna Valley at Spa Castle consists of a myriad of rooms themed by material and type of healing, including their Gold Pyramid room – lined with plates of 98% real gold; Charcoal Tower; Far Infrared Sauna; Himalayan Salt Sauna Room, and Color Therapy room, in which color is used to aid physical and emotional health.
Elegant Hydrotherapy Bade Pools are strategically placed throughout the grounds and available year round. These pools, engineered to sooth muscle pains and target pressure points, vary in design, from a waterfall-populated Mystic Pool, to a Hinoki Bath modeled after famous traditional Japanese baths, built with ancient 300-year-old pine wood.
After you finish hitting the fitness center, or otherwise feel peak relaxation, the castle also offers a pair of resting areas that include a traditional Korean Ondol Sleeping Area.
While temporarily closed, the Spa Castle also has a game zone complete with mini golf, an outdoor patio, theater, and mini games.
Spa Castle has a variety of food and drink options available, that includes their Castle Café, Juice Farm, Tonic Tapas, Aqua Bar, and Asya Restaurant which features authentic Korean, Japanese, and Chinese cuisine.
Entry prices vary but start at $40 per adults, $25 for children (under 4 feet tall), $20 for children between 1 and 2 years old, and free for children under 1 year old. Prices increase on weekends. For full details on hours and prices, visit their website here.
