S Korean hotel apologises for see-through sauna

UPI – A luxury hotel in South Korea is apologising after guests discovered that an issue with the mirrored windows allowed outside observers to see into the women’s sauna area.

The Grand Josun, a recently-opened five-star resort on the island of Jeju, said the mirrored windows in the sauna area are designed to prevent anyone outside the property from seeing in during the day, and blinds are supposed to come down at dusk, when the mirrored effect no longer works.

Guests complained online recently that they discovered the sauna area was sometimes visible from outside the building. They said they could see the sauna, bathroom and showers through the windows.

The hotel apologised and said the sauna has been temporarily closed while officials investigate the malfunction with the mirrored windows and blinds.
