Termeden, a special place…

Located in a remote suburb called Icheon, an hour away South drive from Seoul, Termeden is renowned for being the first resort to have been influenced and inspired by Germany’s spa culture. Unlike Japanese-style spas, containing mainly hot baths, Germans style spas focus more on water massages.
The name “termeden” comes from the words “terme” and “eden” meaning spa and paradise. Well, this paradise might seem fit exclusively for stressed-out people, but in fact, the complex is very family-friendly but also couple like and own children’s pool space as well as an outdoor mountain-themed slide to encourage kids to play.
As it is German spa style inspired, the pools were designed with underwater massage jets to stimulate one’s body.

Covering an area of 30,000 square meters, Termeden’s big attractions are its indoor and open air pools, popular especially during winter. Its hot tubs, and its traditional Korean style sauna with its original structure. It also has herb-bath varieties such as lemon, cherry, and green tea. Apart from this attractions, the water park own a hot spring spa, arcades, a cultural hall, a food court, fitness center and a juice bar and various other subsidiary facilities.
While enjoying the spa and its surroundings, visitors can walk, swim, or exercise in the stream water pool measuring 120 cm. Then they can take a stroll in the near forest.

Termeden recommends various specific bath programs. Like “warming up course”, the “refreshing course” and the “fat reduction course.” Each of these courses is for people who feel sleepy, stressed, or overweight. There was also the “doctor fish” attraction, supposedly consuming dead skin of its bathers but unfortunately it has closed.

The complex has a big project for the future. It plans to expand into a multi-resort one, adding to its facilities: a hotel, an arboretum, a golf driving range, horseback riding, and condominium facilities.
