The hot springs are absolutely gorgeous. Soaking in these aromatic pools with hot water constantly flowing into them is the most relaxing thing you can imagine. We went there in the early afternoon and stayed until 9 pm, and there were not many people, especially at the end of the day. It was extremely clean. Fresh towels and drinks are provided; as many as you wish. Service is excellent and makes you feel like a celebrity. If hungry, you can have a meal at the restaurant - we had a relatively expensive, but very good, meal.
We took an orange bath, coffee bath, milk bath, wine bath, jasmine bath and many other (about 50 to choose from)… There was also a bath with Turkish fish ‘doctor fish’ that feed on your skin, a little scary, but worth trying. At the end we had a relaxing lie on a heated floor, it was amazing and sooo relaxing.
Location is a disadvantage, especially if you don’t have a car. It is a 40 minutes’ drive from the centre of Nanjing. We had a problem with coming back – asked a receptionist to call a taxi, for which we waited 20 minutes and had to agree to pay 140 yuan for our way back to Nanjing. It was after 9 pm so we had no real choice but to accept it. Getting there cost us 96 yuan, and we met a very honest driver, who after driving for 15 minutes admitted that he didn’t know how to get to the place and refused to go. However, he did not charge us, and helped us get another taxi.
The whole trip is not the cheapest (the cost of getting there; a meal 58 yuan; plus the entrance fee of 218 yuan per person), but definitely worth trying.
