Spa Castle, Carrollton, TX

Some of our favorite amenities are Cypress wood cubes and Loess clay balls that you can bury yourself in. King Spa and Spa World feature these!

Note: While Spa Castle & Sojo allow you to bring swimwear, most K-Spas require nudity for the pools and showers. That's how SoKo is different: you shower individually and share all the other amenities with the opposite gender. Anniversary dates, parents, and mixed parties can enjoy SoKo together: we provide spa wear and basic toiletries so you won't need to run home before visiting!

I can’t wait for this spa to open! I can’t tell you how excited I am for this spa to be located in the twin cities. Will be going in a big group for the first time since I have such a big extended family.
