Located in the Southwest of Chengdu between the second and third ring roads, Noah’s Ark is a five-level sauna and spa with numerous features. Although the cost is higher at Noah’s Ark than many other spas in Chengdu, it includes extras like multiple gaming rooms, a gym, KTV rooms, and an all-day buffet.
The food in the buffet at Noah’s Ark can either be great or dismal, depending on what time of day you visit. After you’ve paid entrance you’re allowed to stay within the complex for 18 hours and can either sleep in a private room (between 200 – 800 yuan) or sleep on a mattress on the floor in a hallway along with dozens of others for free. Like other spas in Chengdu, Noah’s Ark features lounge chairs with attached televisions that patrons sleep on, but these will almost always be crowded after 8pm or so.
The game rooms at Noah’s Ark are a distinct feature which few other spas in the region can match, featuring arcade games like Street Fighter in addition to casual games like Plants vs Zombies on an 80″ display. The game rooms close between 1am and 10am, so make sure you don’t arrive too late if that’s something you’re interested in.
Unlike many other spas in Chengdu, you can drink water and even order beer within the actual spa. Unlike the Herijun Spa in Chengdu, there is no cold water pool within the spa area.
The cost of entry to the spa is 198 yuan and includes access for up to 18 hours. This fee includes the buffet as well as access to a swimming pool and gaming area with video games and ping pong. Massage services are available at additional cost, although prices are reasonable (as inexpensive as 100 yuan for a 90-minute full body massage).
