Owned and Operated by Korean Gang. Avoid!!!

Avoid supporting spa owned and operated by Korean Gangs. Hyang Park aka Miss Lee was appeared before Chief Magistrate Ann Marie Smith in her Belize City courtroom on Tuesday afternoon, along with their attorney Herbert Panton for a preliminary inquiry into charges of attempting to pervert the course of justice and conspiracy to pervert justice. After reviewing the paper evidence and statements police had gathered, the Chief Magistrate concluded that there is enough evidence for a prima facie case against the accused persons, so she committed them to stand trial in the October session of the Supreme Court. Conspiracy to commit murder. MURDER!!! Don't go there.

Came here with many doubts and excitement at the same time. The massage was really great and korean body scrub was amazing. It is very different from body scrub using salts. My skin felt silky soft. The staffs were great. I had to leave the review because I really enjoyed this spa and everyone should know that this spa is not bad like some other reviews say. I really enjoyed the whole sauna experience not just massage and having nothing else to enjoy.

I DO NOT recommend Juvenex spa. Here are some reasons why: 1. 4 out of the 5 showers I could see were broken. 2 were missing knobs. 2. No designated dressing rooms. We actually had to wait each time for a facility room to become available. 3. Staff talking loudly all the time - basically loud, non-stop chatter that can be heard inside the facility rooms. Not relaxing at all. 4. Most of the staff does not speak English - asking for a glass of water can be a big deal. One person has to go get another person who can speak. 5. Chaotic and disorganized. Even though there were so many staff members hanging around (not doing much) the spa bath still overflowed - a customer had to make them aware becuase nobody was watching it. From beginning to end it was an unsettling experience. Does not even come close to what you imagine from seeing the ad in the paper.

Like no spa I've ever been to

After reading the NYMag review on the spa - I decided to give it a shot. The spa itself shouldn't even be called a spa. * I received my gift certificate two months after my friend bought it for me, somehow it was "lost in the mail" * your reservations won't guarantee anything - so don't bother making them * no locker rooms, you'll change behind chairs unless a massage room is available * Japanese-Style Soaking Ponds = broken tiles, no jets, cold water. 1 of 3 was empty when I was there. * no one tells you where to go, what to do and how long to stay for (complete confusion by every staff member) * 90 minute procedure actually took me over 2 hrs because of the wait * loud, not relaxing, frustrating I have the same $145 basic purification + 30 min massage done at a proper Korean spa in Flushing for $90 and everything is better, the scrub, massage, cucumber mask - not to mention everything is more organized and cleaner!

Some Hints:

  • The best reviews give a clear sense of why you liked or disliked a restaurant, bar, or store. And that means details. Mention specifics dishes, type of crowd, pros and cons...
  • If it's helpful to compare one place to another, go for it.
  • Come up with clever, funny, pithy subject lines, and write in the first person.
  • Don't forget to read the user rating guidelines and rules.
