Ba Li Ya Sex Sauna Shanghai - Girls Sauna

We think the Ba Li Ya is the best sex sauna in Shanghai. Till now the location is one the best keept secret in the chinese sauna community and only known by some insiders. The Place is hidden in the backyard, hard to find, even you know the place, but when you arrive, it is impressive! A big building in classic italian style, 3 levels with a lot of great trained girls. Seems they have a good chanel to bring new sexy girls from Guangdong Saunas to Shanghai, so they can provide girls they are really willing to provide a very special service. They are busy most time, so the selection will provide around 10 to 15 girls, but till now every girl we checked did great service. 

I think our guide was the first western customer there, so they are not so familiar with not chinese customers, so please do not expect anyone there speak english. They also will not guide you so professional like you will know from other locations like the Pine Club or the Surf Club, because they expect the people will know how to find around, so for newbies, better check out our guide here:

When you go inside, you will first get a "bracelet" with your number at the cashier desk. 

Than you have to walk to the locker room. There is only one big room, so do not expect any privacy. (If you try to find that, than better visit the 1066 Sauna, because there the you will change your clothes in the massage room). In the locker room the guys will open a locker with your bracelet and provide bath shoes and a bag for your mobile phone, cigarettes or what ever you want to take with you. You have to undress yourself now, than walk to the spa area. 

Before you enter the spa area (check the picture above), you have to change your bath shoes, than go inside for a shower. Here you also can take a bath. 

After finished shower and/or bath, you have to leave the room from the same door you entered it. Here they will provide towels (before everything will be a "naked walk") and you will have to dress the typical chinese sauna dress (shorts and jacket). Than you will have to walk a long distance around in nice decorated hallways. Than they will guide you to the elevator. Here you have to select the 3rd level (they will tell you that only in chinese, so better remember to avoid problems).

In the third floor they will check your bracelet, than guide you to a waiting room (like you can see on the picture). Here you can enjoy some free drinks and later they will guide you to a fishbowl selection.

The selection will happen in on the 2. floor, you wait in outside and look inside a small room, only around 10 to 15 girls behind the glass, but most time several hot beauties there. After selection the girls will come out (we checked 4 different girls already and no girl had any problems to serve western customers), so this is definitly not a problem there. 

After the selection you go to the massage room with the girl. The girl now will ask you, if you like her to change to some other clothes. If you have no idea, you should show her you agree, than she will leave and some minutes later you will see the result of your lucky draw: a office girl, nurse, baby doll or what ever will come back. So here if you prepare some chinese words, much better chance for you to get what you like (for example 办公室 - Bàngōngshì will be the magic code to get a girl like you can see above, stockings, high heel shoes, mini skirt, glasses and so on). 

Here are some of the costumes you can select:


     Jǐng Chá



     Kōng Jiě



     Hé Fú



     Hù Shì



     Yōng Rén

     French Maid


     Mì Shū




     Sexy (Gogo)

We recommend, you to take off your clothes till she come back. After she come back, she will select some music, than do a strip dance for you, combined with kissing, kuddling or blow you. Than you can get a great BBBJ. all the girls also provide CIM (no problem here for 2 rounds), followed by the water sucking massage of your back, full service and so on. It is up to you, how you arrange the time, the girls are very willing to follow your fantasies. 

After finished the session, you have to decide if you want to go back to the relaxing room or if you want to go to the shower directly.

If you decide to leave, they will bring you down to the first floor, than you can take a shower again or you can directly leave to the locker room. After dressed, you will have to go out to the counter, give them your bracelet and pay (RMB 700) and leave. Drinks or other things will not be charged extra, so no risk for higher price there. 

All together a secure place for having amazing service for a reasonable price. 

Opening hours: 12 am up to 3 am (Fr. & Sa. till 4 am)


(all sessions will be 70 minutes):

1080 RMB including soft drinks and snacks (beer 40 RMB)

980 RMB if you leave before 6 pm

    Just been there this evening at 7, and apparently they no longer provide red rope service. There were more than 30 girls, but when I showed the card requesting red rope service (I don't speak Chinese) to the guy at the lineup, here shook his head and said no.
    The girl I chose was really passionate, and have really great service, but there place in general seemed a bit seedy, and I was appalled that at the end of my session, she flipped the used towels to the other side rather than change them!

    Just left the BaLiYa at 6:30 pm, Sunday. Great time. 880rmb
    At the time to select a goddess, I showed them the communication card for RedRope service and unfortunately it was not available - at least not to me at this time. So, still hoping to find that one of these days.

    Shanghai Nightlife Guide (Tuesday, 19 January 2016 08:29)

    thank you very much for your feedback. We changed the rate already. Seems actually the girls getting the "magic point" and nearly all sauna owner need to follow the rule: "if you pay peanuts, you will get monkeys" ;-) So the only chance to get good girls actually seems to be rise up the price.
    But we will update our sauna listing soon and add some more of the "small places" which need to offer a lower rate to win the competition with the big clubs.

    My personal point of view: 3 years ago when we checked out the place and they charged 680 in daytime it was a great deal, now with 880 or 980 not any more. The girls service still over average, but the facilities are shabby and the selection and girls quality is also not really worth. From my view better cross the street and go to Red House over there, where you can get more girls for a cheaper rate. Even the fittings of red house also not great, there will be much better than in the Ba Li Ya Sauna, especially after the renovation end of 2015.

    Have fun there, Steven

    P.S.: I asked the boss to provide a wechat contact for us, but seems they are very "sensible" with that and prefer not to be listed with that here.

    Had a great time with #925 in this sauna today. Definitely the best service and the most friendly girl I had in a Sauna in Shanghai so far. I love that they offer the costume service. I selected the stewardess costume and the girl looked incredibly hot in it.

    There were around 8 - 10 girls to select from, all really good-looking.
    The only downside is that they don't have bathrooms directly connected to the rooms like in the Red House Sauna. Makes it hard to decide which of the two saunas I like more. But I think Ba Li Ya is my new favorite.

    The place is really easy to find with the instructions given in the member section so it is well worth spending a few RMB for the VIP membership.

    btw. I left the sauna at around 6:30 and I only had to pay 780 RMB. Seems like the price is changing very often here..

    This place is becoming more and more expensive, this time I had to pay 880RMB. Service is the same as before. Well trained girls. They have a new bigger fish bowl and also a girl who helps you select the right girl. I went there a Wednesday evening around 9pm and the place was packed with Chinese mongers. I had to spend more than half an hour watching a football game before even seeing the available girls. Four customers at once make their choice from a line-up of around 15 girls. So have to be very quick if you see something you like.

    No real stunners here, but I like the service attitude. I have never had a bad experience. I selected no 996 this time. Short haired hairdresser from Henan with a fairly big rack. After initial dance and striptease she started a BBBJ, very nice technique. I licked her pussy for a while before we changed to a long 69 session.I must have done something right because she went more and more aroused, suddenly she came wet and hard, I had her full attention after that :) Followed her with a CIM, as stated on this page, all girls provide CIM, but I asked her before shooting, she just laughed and took it all with a smile. I wanted a second round but had problem to recover from the first, but she did her very best to make me feel relaxed. Just when the phone called and time was up, I had a hard-on again. She didn't let me go, instead she jumped on top of me and started an intense cow girl ride, we switched to a number of positions before I relased my second shot at least 15 minutes over time. She did the victory sign with her fingers, when she relaized that I she had finished me. Such a sweet girl.

    Open: Yes, safe? Not sure, at the moment no place is "really safe", but they exist many years already, so they should have a good network, and the construction give you enough "reaction time", so I would say it is not a bad place to have fun at the moment.

    Enjoy Shanghai,

    Shanghai Nightlife Guide (Friday, 23 January 2015 23:20)

    @Andrew: I would say, the selection is much better on Sunday. The girls work every day in the month except their "women's holiday", and if there are less customers, than more girls in selection. And sorry, but for that place we do not provide any pictures or reservation contact. They don't use wechat or internet for promote their service, so we also have no ressource for that. We have a contact to a manager who will clear our questions, for example about service or rate issues, but not for forward it to customers. But we have more than 20 new ones they will come up now step by step, and as a premium member, just ask me what you are looking for, and I will give you a "pre-access" information to the new clubs... some with very young girls, some cheap, one with the totally girls selection like you know it from Dong Gong Spa.

    Have fun,

    Shanghai Nightlife Guide (Sunday, 18 January 2015 15:57)

    Sorry, no wechat contact for that sauna. Some saunas have managers who are very interested to get new customers (because they get a "comission", so they are open to share their contact. This sauna don`t pay comission, so no one want to take the risk to share his wechat in public, so no way for us to share a contact here.

    Shanghai Nightlife Guide (Thursday, 18 September 2014 13:11)

    A sauna will be the most secure place to avoid infection. The hygienic conditions are much better than in a massage place, barbershop or even the escort. There business depends on returning customers, so most sauna clubs here in Shanghai send their girls to health check at least 1 time a month, if there is any doubt about a girls health. she will be suspended till she got checked. And yes, they have several customers, but in a sauna 10 would be a "high roller babe" ;-). Could be in a barbershop, where the session last only 10 to 15 minutes, the pretty girls will serve this number of customers (and even more) a day. But in a normal Sauna here in Dhanghai the girls get 300 to 500 each deal, average girls have around 20 to 40 k a month, so they should serve 2 to 4 customers a day. With 10 a day, they would be in the range of 80 to 130 thousand a month, and this league is only reached by the best of the best with much higher "model rate",.. Also a session with 70 to 90 minutes and 12 working hours plus "selection time" reduce the number of potential customers per day to less than 6 to 8 for a girl who will never have a break with no customer over the day. I also know sauna girl they make not more than 2 deals per day in average.

    Nether me or any of our guides catched something for years now, and some of our guides "check out" a lot of places and girls every month for years now.

    Sex always include the risk to catch a disease, but from several ways to play around, the sauna will for sure be one off the most safe ways here in China.

    Enjoy Shanghai,

    @ John

    Those Girls use a mouth cleanser as well as a spray before giving you a BBBJ or a BJ. Thats the safest. But not sure your girl did that before giving you one.

    john (Sunday, 07 September 2014 16:41)

    Hi Steven, Have you ever asked the papa san here if all the girls get checked regularly for HIV/STDs or every sauna place never has none such policy.

  • #97

    Cody (Saturday, 06 September 2014 15:35)

    Holy sh*t, I got one of my best BBBJ's here. The girl was so phenomenal at it, that I really didn't want to f*ck, but later still tried it out on my second round, but she was loose. Should have just stayed with the BBBJ and CIM again. I selected number 986. She was beautiful, full breasts, awesome DATY, but did not DFK. I normally prefer DFK as it is the cherry on top of the service, but man.. The BBBJ was just phenomenal. I tried boning her on my second round, but she was loose. Either way, she made me finish quick because she was soooo beautiful. 670 RMB well spent on two shots. In between the shots, I got the ice and fire treatment and then rimming, which I had to stop her, since I'm a bit ticklish in that area. Unbelievable bang for the buck. This scene gives me second thoughts about going to the pickup bars, but I guess each has their strengths. I'm Asian-American, so I have to struggle a bit to get girls at PU bars, but it's all gravy here at Ba Li Ya.

    Tip: Look for the guys on wired headsets guarding the gates and ask them for Ba Li Ya Massage. They will point you in the right direction. There's also a few posts below that give a few details on the location. Happy hunting!

  • #95

    gem (Friday, 22 August 2014 15:44)

    Did it again... This time, nice selection of ~10 girls. Papasan recommended 962, tall girl (1.70) with C-cup from Dongbei. Since I had made only good experiences with such recommendations at other places, I followed and took her. She changed to special clothing, but then not only striptease but dancing with me and mutual undressing. Overall: Great BJ skills, fun personality, will definitely go for a recall.

    Some of you guys may know her, she told me foreigners often select her, and one time there was a group of waiguoren with all but one trying to chose her.Steven, was that your tour? ;-)

  • #94

    Zlatan (Wednesday, 13 August 2014 21:25)

    Just back from this place, was there from 1am-2am, about 10 Girls. chose 959, service just so so. Unlucky that she was tired and was yawning! Anyway, She powered on the inhouse Music System with the TV, Hot Dance, Nice Ass, Petite Boobs, Bushy Pussy!
    Secretery Outfit, Quick Strip Tease, Nuru, BJ, and Sex via every possible position! Overall 6/10.

    Place. Hats off! Amazing! The Girl and the people were shocked because my chinese is nearly perfect! You will be treated like VIP at every step if you are a foreigner who can speak chinese, if not then difficult to communicate with girls. The Building is a maze! Fishbowl and Girls selection on the 3rd Floor.
    Pros: Great Privacy with the Girl, Excellent Atmosphere, Good Girls, 700 RMB includes every shit!
    Cons: Locker Room no privacy, Pool is dirty, The girls don't give you any bath, no soap water, / or dosen't sit and play with you in the water tub. Its just a small room, you and the girl and dim lights!
    Its an advertising gimmick that its a Sauna, but it's NOT!
    Tip: to reach there you can take Jiashan Road subway station line 9 exit5 , you walk straight for 100m and turn left.

    Needed help :) (Wednesday, 13 August 2014 15:19)

    Hey Steven,

    Thank you so much for the great info. My membership just expired but I will renew it when I come back to Shanghai. It is well worth the concierge services :)

    Actually I didn't know what to expect from the girls/place. I've been there 4 times and I'm really surprised by the good vibes. It is clear that this is a high standard establishment, including the treatment to the girls (which is important to me).

    Booking a girl in advance, which I know would be to my taste/preference is a very good bonus. I wouldn't mind waiting for the right girl. It's really worth it.

    BTW - how do I get to the guy who collects the pics??? :)

  • #92

    Shanghai Nightlife Guide (Wednesday, 13 August 2014 10:21)

    Should be no problem to find your girl. Do you speak some chinese? There is a guy who will guide you to the selection all the time. He will be able to do a preselection for you. Can be you have to wait there for a second and third lineup, if she is busy when you arrive or you even have to come back another day, if you show up on her day off... and there is also a risk, that she not work there any more, because in that business "some month" can be a long time ;-)
    If you would know the number, you could support her by ask the guy for a session with her, when he bring you to the waiting room or latest before you arrive at the lineup (if you don't speak chinese, just write the number on your phone and show it to him).
    It is part of their "Quality Control" that all girls need a minimum number of "Blind Recals" each periode, otherwise they will get trouble and finally loose their job, and same time they get "bonus" for additional "recalls". So if you ask for her in advance, than she will normally apprechiate it a lot (and most girls "give back" something for that. ;-)
    Another tip for the future: All Sauna girls I met the last 2 years used weixin (wechat) and they are most time very open to add a customer - because than it will be more easy for them to ask you back and make sure, you don't fish them out of the lineup and waste their bonus. And another effect will be, that you also get real pictures from the girls you fu****** ;-) And it is said, that there are guy who like to collect that!
    Btw, wechat is available as a mobile phone app in multi languages, even include a (lousy) translation function, so you can chat with the girls without any chinese skills.
    I you don't speak chinese (and you are a VIP member on our page), than we also can assist you to write down a chinese "request" for the "papasan" which you can show to him to solve your problem. For that you can write a e-mail to our booking hotline, mention your VIP order number there and write down all the details you know about her, which can help the guy to remember her. We will send back a chinese version to you later..... or you join one of our tours where we most time visit the Ba Li Ya sauna and than our guide could arrange the request for you on location. You have mentioned already a lot of details about the girl (the vibrator is not helpfull, because it's part of the Ba Li Ya standard girls equipment ;-), but if you have a idea about how tall she is and about her hairstyle, I am sure the guy will be able to reduce it down to less than 5 girls, than you can pick her out easily.

    I wish you luck to find her,

    Need help! (Wednesday, 13 August 2014 09:24)

    I had an amazing time over there a few months ago. Went with a relatively tall girl, Chinese looking, very thin, no tits.
    One of the best lays I ever had. She loves big cocks, and came hard and trembling. Even took out a vibrator for me to play with her. Amazing girl.
    Problem is: I forgot her number! (It was a high 900s # but I don't remember. Maybe 997?). And even if I do remember, how can I ask her specifically at the place? Who should I ask?
    Also - do you have any recommendations for girls there (hot and enjoy sex)? I think I'm becoming a regular there...

    Socrates (Tuesday, 24 June 2014 10:29)

    Went to Ba Li Ya on friday (June 20) 15:00. The place was quite busy at this time. A lot of Chinese men seems to take an early weekend and go to this place. After spending some time in the pool and sitting and watching a soccer game I finally had to choose my girl. At the time there were about seven girls in the fishbowl. I asked the papasan if someone of them could speak any English and he pointed at number 978. She was the one who also was flirting with me constantly so I thought that was a good sign and picked her. She had a cute face and seemed to have a pair of big boobs too. She led me to the room and asked me about my preferred outfit and I selected the office dress. I undressed while waiting for my little secretary. Once in the room again she started to give me a dance in her nice dress. She asked me if I would like to meet her sister as well? It would cost me 1100 RMB in total for both of them. I said, yes why not. It's friday after all. After calling for her "sister" she stripped for me and her body was nice but the boobs were smaller than expected, she used double push-up bra's to get them in shape. Shortly number 923 showed up, a really nice girl with better looks than 978. The new girl gave me a really good blow job while I finger pulled 978. Both girls were really enthusiastic in bed, 978 overreacted on everything, which made the session a bit weird. There was no interaction between the girls, but they really tried hard to please me. Eventually I CIM on 923. After some rest the body sucking and licking of my back started, which was nice. They wanted to lick my ass and but fuck me with their dildo, but I said no to that, they really looked disapointed :) Instead 978 started to give me blowjob while I finger pulled the cute sister. After a while 978 covered me and started a cow girl fuck. 923 covered my toe and started to ride that, a new experience :) I continued to fuck 978 in some various positions while the other girl did her best to support. Being a little tired after the first shot I realized that I could not finish a second time. My time was up when 923 gave me another good blowjob. Overall a great experience. Two great girls allthough 978 was a little crazy.

    Had a very pleasent session with a young lady (sorry but forgot the number). That early the selection was limited to 6 young ladys all very attractive. Everything was exactly as described above and went very smoothly, I do not speak Mandrin and they do not speak English but was not there for language lessons. There is a bit of remodeling going on but the facilities are modern and well appointed. Got the room with the sex swing and would have liked to try it but was unable to get the young lady to understand, my loss.
    Thanks for all the leg work and info.

    I wonder if everything really is back to normal. I went to Ba Li Ya this evening and on my way to the door I met several girls saying "No, no" and walking away. I stopped and pretending to look for
    an adress and then walked away. Then I saw a guy with a radio, but not one of the normal guys guarding the place. Looked more like the police to me. Hope there was not a crask down and that anyone of
    you were caught with your pants down...

    @musty: check our news area to see which place is open and closed now ;-) And if you really try to find a legit massage, than I am sorry to say that, but than we are the wrong source.

    Enjoy the city,
