Respite from the City: Relax at Wuxi’s Hot Springs

Respite from the City: Relax at Wuxi’s Hot Springs

Although it’s south of the Yangtze, Wuxi can still get pretty chilly in the winter, so there’s no better time to hit the springs. Boasting a wide array of springs around the area, the most well-known and easily accessible Sakura hot spring is at the Ramada Plaza Hotel, located in the city center, which features both indoor and outdoor pools. If you’re more into your privacy, then the Shangri-La Hot Spring Assembly Hall is a good choice, whereas nature lovers should check out the Lingshan Yuanyi Lixing Holiday Hotel or the Yuhou Shanlin Hot Spring Hotel, which are both situated in peaceful, quiet areas outside the city.

1) Ramada Plaza Hotel Sakura Hot Spring View In Map
Known for its status as Wuxi’s number 1 outdoor hot spring, the Japanese-style, or “Sakura” hot spring at the Ramada Plaza Hotel (华美达广场酒店) is built in the style of a garden and uses natural spring water from Nanjing’s Tang Mountain. Totalling an area of 12,000 square meters, the spring also offers a spa, a sauna, a children’s play pool, a gym, and a salt bath among others. Visitors can also experience the strange feeling of having their feet “kissed”, or rather bitten, by tiny fish in one particular pool, or if you’re not the adventurous type you can simply have a traditional foot bath to relax the time away.
