Sink into one of the 30 natural pools bubbling beneath a canopy of palm and coconut trees at the open air Nantian Hot Springs. Soak in a bedrock-bottom tub perfumed with lavender, ginseng, and coconut; try a traditional Chinese medicine-infused herbal soaks; or splash beneath waterfalls in pools with water temperatures hovering around 135 degrees. Curious about exfoliating "fish therapy"? Dip a toe into the pool swarming with tiny garra rufa hungry for exposed skin. Relax even further with a massage at the well-priced spa. Nantian stays open until midnight, so visit later in the evening and you’ll have many of the tubs all to yourself. The ¥198 ticket sets you up with lockers and towels, but bring your own flip-flops.
Nantian Hot Springs is a 15-minute ride north of Conrad Haitang Bay Resort. Pre-book a car or cab if you choose to go soak later at night. ¥198 ticket gets you lockers, towels, and sandals.
