Herijun Spa

Located near the West exit of the Nijia Qiao subway station in the South of Chengdu, the Herijun Spa is among the most well known spas in the city. The facility itself is four stories large and includes features like:

  • Two segregated sauna and spa areas, each with 4 large pools
  • A floor of dedicated massage rooms, offering a dozen different services
  • Billiards, snooker, ping pong, Chinese chess, mahjong, internet-connected computers, and free Wi-Fi
  • Free fruit slices and tea, plus an optional fully-stocked buffet
  • A small and free movie theater inside the building which seats 50

Although it’s rare to see foreigners at Herijun, this is among the best places to relax in Chengdu, especially in the winter. Costs are reasonable and the spa offers essentially every service and amenity one could want. One thing to note is that clothes of any type, or bathing suit, are not permitted in the actual spa area.

    After a long day of exercise it’s a great place to kick it. The baths are hot and relaxing especially for cold winter nights. There’s a number of activities to do including just straight up napping in their armchairs.

    Only thing I’d say is If it’s your first time to a Chinese spa I’d recommend bringing a friend of the same sex. That way you have some company to run you through the process of a bathhouse and someone to converse with while your up to your neck in a mineral pool.

    Definitely an experience no matter how you cut it. In fact often find myself daydreaming about it.

    Super relaxing and an excellent way to soak away Chengdu’s winter chills.

    If you go, don’t rush. Plan to spend 3-4 hours and opt for some of the frills. The full body scrub (guā shā 刮痧) is cheap and definitely worth it without the add-on bath salts or oil. Foot or body massage also. In addition to the hot baths, steam room, and sauna there is also a small, approx 5C pool to temperature -shock the body after getting all warm and relaxed in the hot pools, which is enjoyably painful and worth a try. The full body hot air dryers were neat too.

    If you want to lounge in the recliners after you bathe, go early since they seem to occupied by squatters.

    Gotta say i’m not a huge fan of this place. been a few times and the main problems: noisy guys fooling around (noise=crazy fun in China right?), awful food and way too much smoking. The sauna is nice, but my gym’s got one and the pools are nothing special either. I think spa is like buffet: better to splash out a little more and really enjoy it. it’s cheap tho..

      Interesting that you mention smoking, because it is not allowed in the spa area nor in the seated areas on the second floor where everyone is lounging. At Noah’s Ark though, you can smoke everywhere including inside the spa, which I found strange. I only saw one person actually smoking there, though. Here, at Herijun, I had to ask someone next to me to observe the no smoking sign in front of them and stop smoking, which they did.

    Man the pool table area was smoke central. of course no smoking in the pools!

    I was thinking of hitting up this place today, but I’m wondering if I’ll need to speak much Chinese there. I’ve been to a few of these types of places run by Koreans back in America, so I know the basic protocol. Do you think if I just tell the person at the reception the Chinese words for “spa entry”, I’ll be okay? hahah 🙂

    • Charlie January 27, 2015 at 6:40 am #

      Yeah, you’ll be fine. As soon as you walk through the door they will be saying “spa?” at you. This place is pretty easy to figure out – shower and spa on the ground floor, then 3rd and 4th floor have massage rooms, pool tables, ping pong, etc.

    I am looking forward to visiting the Spa

    Do they do facials at this spa parla?

    • Charlie June 8, 2016 at 8:44 am #

      I believe they do but to be absolutely sure you should check in the lobby. They have a number of different services available, it is a large complex.

    Man, today is 2016-07-29, I have just been there, it is a wonderful place. It reminds me of the places I used to go in Shanghai (lived there 2002-2009). Price was 138RMB for an adult and 68RMB for my kid, 6 years old, who went to a bath house for the first time and loved it.

    Thanks so much for putting this info online. I also went to the Korean you recommended (so-so) and have other of your recommendations in my phone waiting to be tried.

    Thanks again.

    Luis.

      Glad to hear that, thank you for leaving this message. With places like the Korean spot (and other niche places in Chengdu), they can be hit or miss. One thing that Chengdu lacks is consistency, with everything changing all of the time, especially non-Chinese places.

    What is the policy for using bathing suit in the men area?

    • Charlie September 9, 2017 at 1:35 am #

      Both men and women areas are naked. You may be able to wear a bathing suit there if you like, I’m not sure!

      • Drago October 4, 2017 at 5:26 pm #

        … definitely not! It is a naked area.

        I must admit, that it may be not a place of the highest class … I’ve been to more luxurous SPAs in Shanghai, but it’s absolutely best value for money! Included in the entrance fee there is a “small” buffet at later time in the evening (and at noon maybe). The dinner buffet has to be payed extra, but the small extra fee for that is worth as well. I would say that it is absolutely recommendable – for women as well as for men. The only Thing I miss there is the mixed gender Thing I am used to here in Germany.

        • Charlie October 4, 2017 at 5:33 pm #

          I agree, it’s a good value. It’s nice to visit in the winter in particular.
