The area
Neighborhood: Wan Chai / Causeway Bay
Wan Chai and Causeway Bay are the retail centers of Hong Kong Island. Filled with shops, malls and restaurants, both areas are bustling with people – tourists and locals alike. Causeway Bay has one of the highest rents on the planet, and is a bit more polished and modern than its Wan Chai counterpart. Beneath the surface there is more than meets the eye – find boutique stores in the above ground floors of buildings and wander into side streets to find interesting restaurants and shops tucked away from the main roads. Wan Chai especially has experienced a modern revival in recent times, with an influx of trendy restaurants and bars around the Star Street area. In addition, both areas contain many of Hong Kong’s iconic tourist attractions worthy of your visit.
How to get there
  • Causeway Bay • 7 min walk

Best price/quality spa sauna in HK
Nov 2019 • Solo
Probably the best sauna of the kind in Hong Kong: great quality of service, everything is well-maintained and sparkling clean, the hours make sense, pricing extremely affordable, legit highly skilled masseuses with good attitude. They take credit cards. No hidden fees, a reasonable tip is appreciated. Fast WiFi and lots of power sockets.

Not really a bathhouse, but feels great
Sep 2017 • Solo
This spa gets an A-OK from me. If you’ve traveled to Korea and Japan and are used to the jjimjilbangs & sentos/onsens there, you’re going to be disappointed, as Hong Kong (to my knowledge) doesn’t have anything like that. However, sunny paradise is worth a trip for a quick burst of relaxation. The men’s area has a giant hot jacuzzi, ice cold bath, a sauna, and a Chinese herbal steam room. They all feel great (try to see how long you can last in the ice bath...feels amazing to immediately follow with a trip to the steam room). The steam room is pumped with some kind of herb in the steam (maybe ginseng?) best breathed through the nose for sinus care. There are also showers and many massage options (which I did not opt for). The locker room attendant will bother you for tips as you leave and admission overall is pricey at about $280 HK just for the sauna and baths. Also, the woman’s area (I’m told) only has steam room and sauna, not baths. So due to the priciness and limited options it’s not the best, but...all the walking around in Hong Kong calls for this kind of rewind. So if you’re on the fence, go.

Had a great experience!

We were looking for a decent local spa in Causeway Bay area at a reasonable price and we found this place. Its quite daunting at the start but thats just the language barrier (and being totally naked). Facilities were clean, staff were friendly, massage was AMAZING! Yes they will ask you for tips but thats at your discretion when you pay on the way out. The price was really good for everything it included. Would throughly recommend!

Tipping
Mar 2017 • Solo
I had to write as a response to many reviewers saying that they were shocked to be asked for a tip. I have travelled all over and frequently have services in spas. It should not be a surprise that you should give a tip to someone who has taken care of you. I think that language may be an issue and frankly the assumption by people that they do not need to tip has made it necessary for the masseuse to have to ask. I think management should put up a sign stating that tips are not included in the price. I can not recall getting even my nails done without tipping. So please do not pass judgement on these hard working people!

Recommended - overall a nice and relaxing experience with a couple of drawdowns
Feb 2017 • Solo
A bit old and dated, but has aged with a certain charm. The interior leans towards the roman style. There are no windows, thus I think that they could have picked a better describing name, leaving out the sun. That being said, the place is fairly large and I did not miss any windows.

Mens area: One large hot jacuzzi, one cold bath, "oxygen room", chinese scented steam sauna, hot dry sauna, showers, massage rooms.

The hot sauna was of the dry kind with a sign saying "don't throw water on the heater" and very hot. The thermometer scale goes to 120degc and the indicator was overrange, showing at least 130degc. Not sure if this is accurate, but it felt very hot. I still managed at least 10min in one go anyway.

The cold bath had quite many particles floating around. Possibly not intended. It might either have been old skin remains (gross!) or fruit flesh (details below). I still used it several times though, albeit treating it as a "necessary evil" more than a freezing refresher.

I did not see any particles in the hot jacuzzi, but that might have been due to the water jets making the water more unclear? Let's pretend not, and anyway it didn't concern me much. I did however keep my head above the water.

The scented steam sauna was not particularly warm, but nice and comfortable with a refreshing smell to the thick steam keeping visibility practically at zero.

Some of the furnitures in the oxygen room in addition to the permanent benches were cheap plastic chairs and tables, and at the time of my visit a bit messy from beverage remains (see detials below).

Fresh and tasty lime juice, cold flower tea, soy milk and water as well as apples, bananas and oranges available free of charge in the bath area. A very welcome refresher as you can get a bit dehydrated after a while.

There was several TVs with sound on in the bath area, sometimes competing in volume and at first I found them quite annoying and totally malplaced, a bath/sauna/spa being expected to be a relaxing experience. After a while they stopped distracting me too much however.

The clientele was at the time of my visit probably 70+% local HK men aged 50+. Toghether with the TV programme and the general age of the place it kind of all added to the "local sauna" impression.

Stayed for 1.5 hours, did only the baths and saunas, no massages. I might have opted for a massage but was put off due to other reviwers' comments about unpleasant tip haggling by the masseuses.

Generally friendly staff. However, at the time of "checkout", the man in the changing room started to talking discreetly about tipping. Further, at the checkout counter, the receptionist continued asking for a tip. Having read reviews before, I was however prepared for this and since my impression is that you need not generally tip in HK, I did my best to gently refrain. In retrospect I could perhaps have rounded up to the next 50 HDK on the total price, however they felt slightly rude, so I guess it's ok. Let's just wish that they eventually will read some of the reviews here, and change their approach. The haggling put a slightly downside to the overall experience. If their salary is generally too low, they could rather add a little to the overall prices.

Visited a Thursday around 1800 in end of Feb 2017, was not crowded. Paid 230 HKD.

Great massage, poor end...
Feb 2017 • Friends
We enjoyed a fantastic foot massage in this well organised place. Upon finishing we were asked by the masseuse how much tip we were going to give her. I thought I had misheard?! Upon request she repeated herself: 'How much tip you give me now?' We felt this was inappropriate and rude.

Old school but great
Jan 2017 • Solo
Given many of the questionable establishments and massage offers in Hong Kong, there is a degree of uncertainty entering a place like this for the first time. Functional & old school it may be but it's also great value & a unique experience.

Without getting two many instructions I was led to the male floor (there is a seperate female floor) was changed and in a steam room within 5 minutes of arriving. When I was there it was 80:20 local vs Westerners & a mixture of nude (mainly locals) or covered by towels. Once you got used to this & realised it was all normal and fine, the various steam rooms, spas etc were great. I stress there is nothing dodgy at all, quite traditional (even a screen showing Happy Valley racing for the gents) in fact very relaxing. Again clean but 70's Hong Kong style. I'd allow at least 30-60 minutes to enjoy the various rooms & spas.

Then the massage! Where does one start. I was given the traditional loose shorts and led upstairs to multiple private clean rooms where my middle aged female masseur was waiting. After indicating whether using feet was ok I then received one of the hardest and best massages I've encountered. I like a really firm touch, and if you want a relaxing chill out this is not the place for you. If you don't mind wincing and squirming a little to come out feeling like your body has had a complete tune-up, then you must try it. Amazing 90 minute experience.

The only slight pitch was a bit of pressure for a tip afterwards from my masseuse which she pushed for $HK200. Upon paying downstairs $HK576 for everything I agreed to an additional $Hk150 tip. It was well deserved.

In summary it's not a plush environment with high service but for a cultural old school experience I thought it was great.
