Olympic Spa: LA’s Best Bath House!
Hey Girls! The best place in LA to relax and get your spa on, is the Olympic Spa. This ladies-only Korean bath-house spa is a local favorite, off the beaten track, where you really get some bang for your buck!
Whenever my bestie comes to LA we hit this place together, but it’s great to go solo too. There are lots of rooms to experience… Wet heat, dry heat, hot pools & even an ice cold one too. I love this place! From they’re classic scrub spa rituals (be warned they go rough), to traditional facials, massages and mani/pedi’s, you won’t be disappointed. My personal favorite is the Velvet Collagen Facial with Suzie. She is the best! Try the Spa Cafe! The food is not your typical spa fare, but it is great. And they are sensitive to dietary restrictions if that’s an issue for you. Oh yeah, free valet parking too.
My advice, get there at least 2 hours before your treatment time to enjoy the facilities without feeling rushed. Or just go for a “simple soak” and enjoy with no service necessary. Either way, plan as much time as you can for this LA gem… Then breathe and melt into the moment… Ahhhhh…..
- Bring shower shoes if you’re a germaphobe, as it’s wet and everyone is walking around barefoot.
- If you’re self-conscious be aware that it’s a bunch of naked ladies lounging around… but nobody’s really looking anyway.
(For a similar but co-ed experience, try Wi Spa.)
