The only reason I cannot rate King Spa in Niles higher, and I've gone here 3-4 times every winter for the past several years, is that the staff act like your very presence is irritating to them. The price is VERY reasonable, at less than $30 for 24 hours. (YES, this place is open 24 hours a day, though the... More

I can't tell you how many people I've turned on to King Spa in Niles. Simply put, King Spa is a then park of saunas. What used to be an old Pet Smart was completely revamped into a spa wonderland of eight themed dry co-ed saunas, with inviting spa tub and steam sauna separate areas for men and women. I... More

I want to preface by saying that I may be slightly biased having frequented some very nice jimjilbangs in Korea. This particular spa was very very similar to those in Korea, but it could use some improvements. The actual bath area could benefit from more pools, perhaps with herbs or healing properties in them. The saunas are very nice, but... More

Definitely one of the most unique spa experiences I've had. Some parts of the spa have separate men's and women's areas, while other areas are unisex. It's pretty cheap to get in (check their website for specials -- ticket for the whole day was $22. which got you everything expect body treatments and food). You can spend as little as... More

Went here for the first time with a friend. Started with baths which are segregated and vary in temp from cold to unbearably hot, then you move to the steam room. Once finished there you out on a uniform, and head out to the coed area which have 10 or so different rooms to relax in, a food court with... More

I can't believe it has been 3 years. Life just get too busy. Again, the wet room was nice, the hot tubs could have been hotter, but still nice. I had a body scrub again, great! The sauna were nice as well. A new area, called the O2 room was very relaxing, i real felt more O2 and slept for... More

King SPA is AWESOME! I've brought tons of my friends here over the years and everyone leaves raving about it. It's one of the most unique things you can do in all of Chicago. I never imagined a Spa could be so unique and cultured. They have many attractions; five wet saunas, massages/scrubs, 17 dry saunas, Korean restaurant and movie/sleeping... More

I went here yesterday for a friend's birthday and absolutely loved it! If you want to use the hot tubs and saunas, you will want to be comforable being totally naked in front of people of your own sex, but that's really the only catch (no bathing suits are allowed). The steam rooms and hot tubs are gorgeous and clean,... More

Give yourself 4-6 hours to really get the King Spa experience. Check in and put on the uniform. Try all of the rooms and even go back in several times. There is plenty of space in each room and, for most part the other patrons respect your privacy and space, The food was above average and reasonably priced. The massage... More
