Unhygienic
Nov 2020 • Solo
This is a visually nice spa but there is no enforcement of proper hygienic practice. It is obvious knowledge that one should fully cleanse the body before entering the hot tubs. However, most of the clientele that visit this spa do not clean their body, and Immediately enter the tub with the uncleaned “privates”. Further, the clientele regularly spit on the bath floor. The management of this spa should enforce the appropriate behaviour with fines. This would encourage guests to follow rules and be accountable for their behaviour.

Great Japanese Spa
Dec 2019 • Family
We stayed at Shanghai Disney which is about 24 km.

This spa is Japanese style with onsen and massage service.

Positives:

1) It is a complex: first level is shower and both place where there are at least 5 different onsen.

2) The rest of levels are either restaurants, massage parlor and relaxation area.

3) It is clean, huge with many facilities such as Karaoke box, a game arcade, massage (body and foot, facial, restaurant with Chinese and Japanese cuisine).

3) Service overall is excellent except that the restaurant waiter was a bit impolite when we asked for return of Sashimi.

Negative:
1) The only negative we experienced was the sashimi not so fresh.

I would like to give a 5 stars if not some unpleasant experience inside the restaurant.

We (4 adults) spent 6 hours inside at a cost of RB2019 (include 4x 1.5-hr massage, some Japanese dinner, Karaoke for 6 songs, some snack and drinks). Quite worth.

If you like my review, pls click “helpful”. Enjoy your trip.

A Beautiful Family Spa in Jinqiao!
Nov 2019
This is my first visit in this spa. I know this area very well. But never knew that they have such a beautiful spa for the whole family. It's Sunday in Shanghai. Spa is full with family and children. Little bit noisy may be with lots of children. But it's a huge spa, not so difficult to find quiet areas.

There are lot of services available in this spa for everybody. For adults it's a great place to relax and recharge. For children, the facility is full with all kind of activities. Toys, games, sports everything. A single visit is certainly not enough.

Gokurakuyu is open everyday from 10am in the morning to late night. They close the door at 2am. Price is very reasonable. Less than RMB 200 per visit (USD 25). Different price for kids. Little bit cheaper. Food price is average. But not cheap. There is only one Japanese Restaurant in this spa. More options will make the spa much better.

Truely, I am looking forward to my next visit and write again with more details about Gokurakuyu.

Soak time.
Sep 2019 • Solo
Being in Shanghai whilst my partner was on business I decided to head out to the Onsen for a few hours. Not disappointed. Easily reached by the 9 train. Quick walk to Onsen from station. No English spoken but staff give good directions. A clean Onsen and very relaxing. Two hours well spent

Lovely spa
May 2019 • Solo
This spa is excellent, the pools were very relaxing and ranged from 38 to 40c.

If you don’t speak Chinese, someone will guide you with the check in process.

Showering is required before entering the pools. Afterwards you change to pajamas and can enjoy the rest of the facility.

Gokurakuyu is the perfect place to visit after a long flight/train ride. It’s close to Hongqiao too!

Japanese style bathhouse in Shanghai
May 2018
As English only speaker the system for checking in is made fairly easy. There is a lot of different style baths, a cold plunge and sauna. There are a few mixed saunas as well as lounge area. I found it very relaxing and would go back.

Lovely bath house in Jinqiao...
Nov 2017 • Friends
I live in Jinqiao and am so excited to find Gokurakuyu. It's a Japanese-style bath house (very similar to a Korean jimjilbang and sauna but without the super-steamy rooms). There's a great co-ed section where you go in and out of warm and hot rooms (there's a cool room, too), a snack bar and restaurant, massage area, games area, and single-gender saunas with lots of pools of varying temperatures. Allocate 4-5 hours to visit and leave feeling refreshed and detoxed!

Japanese Bath house
Mar 2017 • Family
First off, don't know if you could get your teenage kid into this. EVERYONE is naked. However...great experience. Loved how silky my skin felt after the salt rub. Large pools of warmer to hot water. Some have jets that massage your achy muscles. Some have herbs (?) in them that supposedly have rejuvenating healing properties. Also about 7 or 8 dry saunas, again with various stones that promote health. Only one negative about these is that a couple of people were talking in one and then in another someone was watching a show on their cell phone. Would be better if they monitored that to keep it quiet in these rooms for proper relaxation. Also, outside of these saunas are heated floors with pillows strewn about where they could go to do this activity. Pajama like outfits are provided for the saunas as this part of the bath house is both male and female. Large cafeteria with great healthy reasonably priced food. Towels, toothbrushes, combs, blowdryers are all provided. All in all we spent 5-6 hours there. Could have stayed longer. Felt like a ball of mush afterwards...soooo relaxed!

Great Experience
Nov 2016 • Friends
Awesome place. Very similar to a Korean style spa. Great wet area with lots of different pools, even an outside area with rotenburo (big barrels filled with mineral water that you climb in). There are probably 8 or more different types of saunas, all with different temperatures, and an ice room to cool down in. Massages are a little on the pricey side. No English spoken, but easy enough to figure everything out. Highly recommend it if you want to experience a true Asian spa experience.
