The next hot thing in winter: Outdoor bathing at a water park

Few things are more relaxing on a winter’s day than a nice warm bath. A warm bath outdoors in the cold fresh air is a real treat, too. Everland’s Caribbean Bay water park now has an open-air spa that offers cold and tired souls a healing place to wallow in warm water in winter.

Caribbean Bay transformed

In the spring of 2022, Caribbean Bay’s Mar Caribe Bayside Café brought a new face to Korea’s premier water park and was a big hit with Millennials and members of Generation Z – called the MZ Generation for short. In autumn, Mar Caribe underwent a makeover, thrilling visitors with its new fall look and feel. Now Mar Caribe has been transformed once again into its winter persona: Winter Spa.

In the outdoor adventure pool zone, a new Adventure Spa area has opened. Made of the best wood from hinoki cypress trees over a hundred years old, it evokes a luxury outdoor hot spring bathing complex. There is a total of seven open-air baths of various sizes, including ones that can fit a whole family, and others just big enough for a couple.

Winter feels warmer at Caribbean Bay, thanks to Winter Spa.

Adventure Spa’s huge skull sculpture, a trademark of Caribbean Bay, is now adorned with a rolled-up towel of the type that is often worn in Korean public bathhouses. The facades have been winterized too, just right for snapping some photos of memorable moments.

The Cave Spa, which leads to the indoor water lazy river water ride, has also been updated with a new theme: Caribbean Caves, where visitors can enjoy hot baths, foot baths, and sauna rooms in a tropical atmosphere that seems to spirit them away to exotic locations.

Some outdoor baths at Winter Spa Caribbean Bay are just private enough for a couple, while others are large enough for a family or group of friends.

Bade running

Caribbean Bay’s massive 18,000-square-meter indoor Aquatic Center houses a variety of water slides, diving pools, and wave pools for visitors to enjoy. In Winter Caribbean Bay, all pools and baths are heated so visitors can still enjoy all the fun of a water park during winter.

In the Wave Pool you can body surf, while the Quick Ride offers the thrills of four different types of sliding course. The lazy river connects inside and outside and here you let yourself be pushed gently forward by the undulating water as you relax and enjoy the view of the outdoor bathing pools, including the Bubble Bath.

The Bade Pool (pronounced bah-de, from German for bath) promotes health through German-style hot-water bathing. It is like an in-water massage chair that uses strong jets of water to tenderize and loosen aching muscles, relieving accumulated fatigue and stress.

Winter Spa Caribbean Bay, including Adventure Spa and Cave Spa, will remain open until March 1 . For more information such as times, visit Everland’s home page.
