Brilio.net - Have you ever thought of the two things that will make someone’s day better? Yes, you name it, meaty burgers and spa treatments! And now the king of the burgers has decided to put both of them on the menu.
A Burger King resto in Helsinki, Finland is getting bored with their restaurant’s typical ambience and wanted to add something more sophisticated. But instead of adding some neon boards or colourful flowers, they decided to bring the main element of Helsinki into their interior.
According to Mashable, on the ground floor of the restaurant, a shining yet questionably hygienic sauna has been built, and it can accommodate you and 14 of your friends.
You can even eat inside the spa, thanks to servers who swing their way about the sauna and main dining area. The spa operator said there will be tablets for customers to order electronically.

“A 15-person sauna area is perfect for a group of friends for social gatherings or work, the venue for the birthday party, or even the organization of the show studio,” the Burger King Finland website said.
A smaller 10-person spa has also been added to this restaurant, complete with a 48-inch flat screen TV. Each sauna comes with red and blue benches and the brand’s slogan, “Home of the Whopper” written proudly on the wall.

You may think establishing a spa might be the last marketing effort a fast food restaurant would do, but the location does make a little sense. In fact, there is one spa for every three people in Finland. Finns visit spas to relax and get a wellness boost, often with friends or even business partners. Finnish saunas are typically clothing-free, where nudity isn’t as big of a taboo as in many other countries.
Well, it is unclear whether you will have to completely take your clothes off while enjoying the Burger King’s spa. What is sure is that you can enjoy it for three hours, which will cost you €250 ($283 USD) or about Rp3,8 million (OMG!!).
Sounds pricey? Maybe it’s better to buy a bag of french fries and take it to the sauna at your fitness centre. But then again you wouldn’t have sat at a spa at a Burger King in Finland!
Oh hey, it seems like fast food restos are racing in doing out-of-this-world marketing efforts, like the amazing KFC’s fried chicken tasted nail polishes, which you can read here.
