We wanted to take in a thermal bath and this one was not too far away. It was a little tricky to find, but well worth the adventure. For 2 euros you can relax in several different hot pools. The place was clean and not too busy...

The place is heaven on earth, clean, tidy, perfect temperature, among their beautiful vegetation. We got there sometime in late afternoon, and we stayed until 23:00 aprox. At night it is even more amazing. You choose the temperature of the water by placing your self in the pools or in the nearby river. The most exotic thermal pools I have... More

Wonderful bathing experience: the water is about 39° C, the pools were rather uncrowded and the whole setting feels very natural. Entrance fee is very low (2 euro's, but with Amazing Tours it was free as it was part of our day tour). There are... More

We loved our stop at Dona Beija. It's clean and relaxing like an outdoor spa. We went at the end of a long day and the water was warm and rejuvenating, my skin felt incredible after our soak. I know other reviewers mentioned that you should not where white as it will stain your bathing suit... What I didn't think... More
