Besides the massage by professionally-trained staff, state-of-the-art technology and natural elements meld in perfect harmony in this ultra-modern chill-out zone.

For facial treatment, an Australian product line SODASHI was newly launched.
AWAY Spa also features an impressive array of high-tech innovations, such as hydro color and scent therapy baths, vichy shower, a Jacuzzi under the stars. It offers other water experience areas such as water lounges, comfort jets, water curtains, tropical showers and Korean-style scrub stations. A hot air room allows guests to completely dry after the spa and treatments.
Along with its usual signature treatments, AWAY Spa introduces a new anti-aging program called Green Apple Facial for 2012 summer in June and July.
The antioxidant treatment uses products from SkinCeutical, a cosmetic brand which pioneered the skincare industry through advanced skin science technology. The products contain phloretin, an antioxidant ingredient found in green apples. The 70-minute Green Apple Facial is available for 190,000 won.
The indoor pool WET is also a good option for the family, with a kids' pool and a sundeck, while SWEAT is equipped with all the latest gym facilities and a group exercise room. For more information about AWAY Spa, call 02-2022-0450.
Trendiest Japanese cuisine at Namu
