No, you didn't read that wrong. Burger King has officially opened a fully functional spa in Helsinki, Finland, and the world will never be the same again.
Seeing as Finland is the sauna capital of the world, the decision isn't (quite) and strange as you might think. The fast-food giant has announced that its new spa will include showers, locker rooms, a 15-person sauna, a media lounge, and several big-screen televisions to help customers relax. Clientele will also be offered Burger King towels and burgers as they enjoy their sauna experience, because there's nothing that screams "high end spa" like eating whoppers and rubbing your body with fast-food logos.
Before you start planning a trip to Helsinki, though, you should know that this unique experience doesn’t exactly come cheap. Three hours in Burger King’s new spa will cost you a cool $280. However, if eating a burger in a sauna sounds like your ideal experience, the price might be worth it. While food products are becoming increasingly important to the beauty industry, we doubt if there is anywhere else in the world that combines fast-food hamburgers with an expensive spa!
Luckily, if this sounds like you but you don’t see yourself making it to Finland in the near future, we have a solution. Head to your nearest beauty store and pick up an at-home face mask before swinging by your nearest Burger King and grabbing your burger of choice. It’ll cost a lot less than $280, and if you close your eyes, you might even be able to imagine that you’re in Helsinki!
