Treatments at the Banyan Tree Club and Spa Seoul draw on regional therapies and ingredients.
Banyan Tree’s green tea bath treatment was inspired by the bathing rituals of jjimjilbangs—Korean public bathhouses. Korean green tea is rich in antioxidants and is believed to purify the skin.
All of Banyan Tree’s spa products are custom-made with ingredients sourced throughout Asia. In Seoul, Korean ginseng is ground into a powder and mixed with honey to create an exfoliating scrub.
