Seemed to ...ugh for me. Why I would want to go into a modernized place that has the "springs" piped into swimming pools etc...while there are a billion other people in there...no thanks. Before, you could actually go in the river and find the hot spring spots.

It was the day after New Year that we went there with my family, for the purpose of family reunion/recreation in which we do it once in a blue moon. As we arrived there, the ambiance of the mansion(or white house) was very elegant and welcoming. I think this resort used to be a private property as confirmed from my... More

Pooten's resort is the latest addition to the number of vacation destinations in Barangay Asin, Tuba, Benguet. The locals call the resort as "white Mansion" or "white house" because of the big white colored building with a mansion style design in the entrance of the resort. According to the caretakers, the resort was supposedly for the Pooten family as a... More

If you're looking for the original Asin Hot Springs, you’ll have to be on the lookout for a nondescript sign to your left as you are going down the narrow road to the hot springs. Several resorts have popped up in the area in the past several years, many likely more preferable for the western tourist. The original Asin Hot... More

Going to the orginial Asin Hot Springs is worth the effort, it is very close to Baguio, it is a lovely drive through 2 tunnels, BUT, make sure the vehicle that you use can handle the steep climb back up to Baguio. While it costs more, it has a huge pool for children, and several hot tubs and a massive... More

Pooten's Resort is the newest additon to the increasing number of resorts at Asin Hot Springs. There were less than 10 huts available at the time we were there and all were occupied. It was a weekend and there was a scheduled huge meeting in one of the seminar venues hence, the place was packed. Entrance fee was P80 for... More

They require everyone who will swim to wear swim/bath suit. They have a store where you can purchase a swim gear or... More

What's great about the Asin Hot Springs is the road that leads to it - 3 waterfalls, 3 tunnels. When you get there, there isn't much of a signt - a bunch of resorts and you get to see some real hot springs if you look hard enough. We did and found some rising from the ground. Many you can... More

When you are in Baguio it is nice to visit this place which is only 16KM down (as in down) of Baguio. Full of green and fresh surroundings, nice place to get away from noise of the city or little break from Baguio trip.

Daytrip by taxi to the Springs as my wife had been there 30 years ago and said it was good. Maybe we went to the wrong spot, though my wife was disappointed as things had changed, and the springs we found were enclosed within a swish hotel, and the public springs at the local pool. Walked along the road to... More
