There is perhaps no city in China that takes spas as seriously as Dalian. Drawing on the onsen-spa tradition established during the Japanese occupation, spas have been an integral part of Dalian life since the early 1900s. Today, heavy interest from the Japanese, Korean and local Chinese community has helped to continue the development of spas and spa culture throughout the city.
Karen International Spa Club 大连凯伦国际温泉俱乐部 View In Map
A joint-venture between the Dalian Karen Hotel and the Japanese Ywan Yue Company, the Karen International Spa Club spares no expense to provide a quality spa experience. Unlike other local spas, the water used at the International is completely drawn from the Dagushan hot spring. Accordingly, not only can you enjoy a relaxing hot shower but can also receive the health benefits associated with the natural minerals in the water. The spa includes both outdoor and indoor spa bathing areas that include showering facilities and soaking pools. In addition, guests have access to a wide range of massage therapies, from foot and hand massages to acupuncture. If you’re looking for a little entertainment after a steam bath and shower, the International has an onsite Internet cafe, game room (with ping pong tables, pool and fuzzball), children’s entertainment centre and restaurant. Ticket prices vary according to the services and sections you choose.

Cloud Water Spa at the Shizhouyunshui Hotel 十洲云水酒店 View In Map
Matching the idea of a hotel with a spa experience, Cloud Water has 12 separate rooms each offering different functions. The "salt brick" steam room, for example, incorporates natural salt bricks with steam to draw out acidic pollutants from the body in a natural manner. Similarly, in the "urn bath", guests are covered in a special mix of minerals and soil that not only draws toxins from the body but also moistures and nourishes the skin at the same time. A popular room is the "jade tree field", where guests can sit, lie and rest on pure jade stones that allow guests to naturally cool down without fans or air-conditioning. Cloud Water also offers more traditional spa amenities such as showers and baths. Guests have access to other hotels services such as the in-house restaurant. Tickets to the spa range from 49 to 59 RMB per person.
