PARADISE SPA DOGO IN ASAN (Enjoy Swimming All Year Round!)

by - October 31, 2017

Who says you can't enjoy the water park when it's cold? There are many family friendly hot spring water parks you can enjoy all year round in Korea. Paradise Spa Dogo is one of them located in Asan about 90 km south of Seoul and it's the perfect location for a one day family trip to the hot springs. It has both indoor and outdoor pools with slides, lazy river pool that connects indoor to outdoor pool, wave pool, pool bar, and hot spring pools that the whole family can enjoy! It also went through a major face lift recently with clean and modern facilities that stands out from the rest of the buildings in the area.

Too be honest, it was freezing cold moving from one pool to another outside and I didn't want to get out of the pool once I got settled in. But our kids wanted to try everything that they saw, so we did run around to almost every pool that they offered. The water temperature is different at every pool, so if you moved from hot to warm, you might still feel cold. After spending about an hour outside, we finally convinced out kids to move to an indoor pool. My kids would have played outside all day if we let them. 😳

Here are some pictures of Indoor Pool:

I loved this place because it was clean, toddler friendly, not too big or crowded. There is also a small play area for kids by the cafeteria and breastfeeding and changing room for babies. They also have a really nice sauna where you can dip in heated pools, get a scrub, and clean up and they include everything you need to take a shower including baby shampoo/shower soap and baby lotion. Sorry no pics allowed here.

One area for improvement about this place was that although the food was reasonably priced, the taste was just ok. Maybe we just didn't choose the right food? We had shrimp fried rice, jjajangmyun (noodles with black bean paste), dduk-boki (rice cakes in hot pepper sauce), odang (hot fish cakes), hot-dog and fries, but they were all just so-so. I usually don't have high expectations for food from these type of places so at least I wasn't surprised by the quality. I would highly recommend ordering pizza or BBQ chicken, which is the only fast food service we saw. Overall, we loved our experience at Paradise Spa Dogo and my oldest son said it was the best water park he has been to! Maybe he just has short term memory? 😆 

No matter how cold the weather is, you will come out of here sweating and feeling lighter after dipping all day at the hot springs.
