Noah’s Ark Spa

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).

    This place is tight. I mean the worker dudes are a little too eager to give you dead skin scrubs, but there are plenty of them wandering around that you’ll never be far from service. But this can get annoying as well, especially when you’re kicking it, chowing down on some grub and you find yourself ganged up + outnumbered by pushy cleaning ladies.

    This place is literally a 3 floored ark, being big enough to never feel overcrowded, and outfitted with enough spots/activities that an 18 hour visit could become a possibility. I have never been to another spa, but 200元 for a huge spa and all-you-can-eat buffet seems reasonable.

    Interesting to see post! I recently (and randomly) found myself at Noah’s ark twice in 3 days. The first visit was with my office’s New Year party, but the lameness of the office party sort of limited the experience….

    So I went back a few days later – and along with the typical ‘luxury high end wanna be everything’ and the ‘pseudo neo classical’ everywhere – the experience was very enjoyable. I spent time in the big open space with 3 nice pools of various hot temperatures… there’s a great sauna. it’s fun.

    There is some room for improvement, though – more organic features, a bit more style….more plants in the pool area would make the cold beers a little sweeter.

    If your Chinese isn’t great and you’ve never been to a spa, there might be a few ‘what the hell going on’ moments – but it was all cool and part of the cultural experience. Overall, it’s just a super chill experience to relax and relax and eat and chill and hang and relax and eat more then go relax and enjoy and so on….

    The extra amenities in this place are great – there’s a gym, video arcade, buffet, and so much more. If you head to Noah’s Ark make sure you give yourself time to enjoy the extras before they start to close up around 11pm.

    There’s a hotel in Noah’s Ark which looks nice but I haven’t stayed there. Overall this place is fun to check out though.

      I went to this place last year and didn’t see any of this. Clean bathrooms, respectful people, decent food, etc. I always interpreted “MAN SPA” to be the gay one.

    Does anyone know if this place is a segregated bathing area or unisex?

    • Charlie December 3, 2015 at 2:03 am #

      Yes, the bathing area is segregated.

  8. Bob December 3, 2015 at 7:09 am #

    Im trying to find somewhere that me and my wife can hang out together. we went to a spa before but spent a lot of the bathing time separated from each other. oh well thanks for letting me know.

    • Charlie December 3, 2015 at 7:22 am #

      There are many communal areas (it’s a 4-floor complex) but the changing rooms and spas themselves are segregated. There are other spas in Chengdu that are communal where you wear a bathing suit, but this is not one of those.

  9. Bob December 3, 2015 at 8:16 am #

    Really? do you know the name or number of any of them?

    It would be really helpful for me. I don’t mind the whole naked segregated thing, but my girlfriend just cant do it. It usually results in me going by myself when she’s out of town or whatever, but its never quite the same. I appreciate we can also hang out together in the other floors but it all about the bath areas for us really.

    • Charlie December 3, 2015 at 8:47 am #

      I actually don’t, sorry. Most spas in Chengdu are of the segregated variety, but I have been to one in the past that was communal. I cannot recall the name though, you might just want to check listings for spas on Dianping although this will require being able to read some Chinese.

      Hi Bob,
      I just stumbled on the same problem, me and my wife we would like to go to sauna together.

      Did you manage to find something like that, with mixed saunas?

      If you did could you please tell me the name or address.

      Thanks in advance.

      • Charlie December 5, 2016 at 3:39 am #

        Hi Reggie,

        They are a little bit more difficult to find. Unfortunately I don’t know of a great one that I can recommend.

      • Drago October 4, 2017 at 5:41 pm #

        As far as I know, in whole China it will be more than difficult to find a SPA place for men and women together in one area, as it is rather normal in Scandinavian countries and Germany for example. I do have the same Problem with my girlfriend, when we are in Chengdu, where she lives. Even in Shanghai I did not find even a hint pointing at a place for both genders.
