Old interior but a nice set of public baths. Especially liked the jets of water which pounded against me in a nice massage. The public resting area is noisy with a lot of kids... read more

Our family's experience at the spa & the sauna went pretty bad from the start. At first, my sister and I couldn't help notice the tiny black substances that were floating in the cold water pool (other pools looked just fine) and so we didn't use that pool at all. The situation got even worse in the sauna. There were... More

This place has been renovated, and changed its name to HILL SPA. I don't know how many 5 dots review pertaining to the new name jimjillbang, but according those ratings, I can confidently say, that the HILL SPA is heavily over rated, and there is much better spa in Busan close to Songdeo beach, with international crowd, and they speak...

The Vesta Spa is now called The Hill Spa. Our taxi driver still knew how to get us there so the name change must not have been too long ago or taxi drivers are just used to the outdated name still being used. We took the metro to Haeundae station so we could eat dinner before heading to the Jjimjilbang... More

The best spa by far in Busan. Super view over the bay from all floors. It was difficult for the taxi to find....but it is very close to the end of Haeundae beach

This is my favourite Jimjilbang depsite of it's old interior. You can have the best Busan night view on the top floor as well. Whenever I visit Busan this is one of the must-go place. The only word to describe it is "Cozy".

Vesta was actually my first jimjilbang experience. It was a little tricky to find even tough I had google maps (there is an abandoned hotel closer to the water that looks sort of like this picture) and since the abandoned hotel is near the spa but the spa is higher up elevation wise, it sort of seems like google maps...

Never been in public bath anywhere before but this first experience is something that very unique. Mens and women's separated into different level the natural hot tub is the best. After an hours or so in the hot and cold tubs, go for the Jimjilbang. Korean way to scrub the whole body. But keep in mind that you have to... More

This spa appears to be very popular on account of its view over Busan's coastline. Using the facilities in the daytime currently costs 6,000 won and spending the night (jimjilbang) 10,000 won. Unfortunately there doesn't seem to be any longer a steam bath, but there are several weird ("crystals" etc) hot rooms which I personally don't understand. Also no Wi-Fi... More
