“One good hot springs place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 April 2013

Went there, my husband and i, on March the 29th. The front desk of our hotel recommended this one when we said we wanted to go to the South hot springs. It was a good 20 min taxi ride from the Hilton Chongqing hotel and the ride cost about 30 yuen. The taxi driver had a hard time finding it but took us to the Radisson hotel and Ronghui was the next property. The facility looks deceiving from the street but you enter it to a wide lobby, go to the counter and they would give you bracelets that work for your locker and as payment if u want to purchase something between dips. In other words no money needed before check out.The locker room is big with hundreds of lockers. The lockers hold a pair of flipflops for you plus a towel. After changing, you have to take a shower before entering the swimming area. Each shower had a curtain for privacy plus facial cleansing lotion, shampoo, conditioner and shower gel. First you enter a big shallow indoor swimming pool but if you go out the doors you will have access to over 10s of different hot springs with different scents and oils. All springs had English names along with an explanation of what that certain springs' health benefits were. Some hot springs were up to 38 degrees celsius and we tried almost all of them. They also had steam rooms and an ice steam room. We visited a rather warm day and were told that all locals go there on cold days. There were approx 30 other guests when we were there. It was an ok amount coz there was always space in every spring. There was also 2 bassins with fishes which worked as fish pedicure as the fish would gather around your feet and eat off dead skin. At first it felt unbearably tingling but when your feet got used to it, it was truly a great experience and our feet felt more alive after it :-). The springs are outdoors but so close to each other and still so private from the next. There were quite a lot of stairs but the area was small so it would suit even those with lesser condition. Staff was very friendly and polite and some spoke good English, other none. All workers bowed whenever you passed them and while dipping in the springs, staff would come and offer you warm water to drink every now and then. There is a tea point just in front of the snack bar and there were 4 different kinds of teas for the guests to drink unlimited. We tried to take photos but were quickly denied by a security staff. The entrance fee in March 2013 was 169 yuen. We spent between 5 and 15 minutes in each spring and i think we were there for approx. 3-4 hours.

“Refreshing experience...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 October 2010

This is a new visitor attraction although there are something like ten hot springs venues in Chongqing; this one, developed by the Ronghui Group alongside their new five star hotel, is run on very professional lines. It seems the staff have been trained in Japan and the high standard shows. There are around twenty different pools, a large inside one and the remainder on the hillside, ranging from the red wine pool through the herbal medicine pool to the one with small fish for dead skin removal. Well worth a visit.
