What could be more relaxing than an urban spa and aquatic setting in the middle of a modern, busy city like Osaka? The Japanese are experts at creating an inviting setting for relaxation and rejuvenation and at Spa World there are all sorts of amenities designed to clear your mind and mend the body.
A variety of internationally themed pools and baths are available to sooth and relax. The European Zone features an Ancient Rome themed Jacuzzi bath, a Greek Medicinal Bath and even an open air Spanish pool featuring a waterfall. The Finnish Sauna House is a perfect place to unwind afterwards. The Asian Zone features lovely pools and baths with a Japanese outdoor setting, an Islamic stone bath and a Bali inspired resort style bath. Each zone alternates months for men only and women only. The European Zone is women only during odd months and men only on even months with the Asian Zone being the opposite – men on odd months and women on even.
If you care for a Jacuzzi with a view, there is an inviting rooftop area that overlooks the city. Swim suites are required here as this is open to both men and women. There’s even a separate amusement and recreation area with water slides and a kids zone with swimming pools. The high water slides offer a thrilling ride while elementary aged kids will enjoy an aquatic playground of their own.
Located just a short stroll away from Dobutsuenmae Station, Spa World can be reached on the Midosuji Line and the Sakaisuji Line. Leave the station from exit 5 and proceed along the tracks towards the Hanshin Expressway. Spa World will be on the left hand side just before the expressway overpass.
