Owner description: A unique establishment surrounded by nature, perched atop a hill overlooking the town and nestling like a jewel amid the greenery and authentic natural High Fens habitat that is the source of Spa’s iron bearing spring waters. An extraordinary view brought to you by an architectural style open on its surroundings, with pure lines and gentle curves, endowed with monumental bay windows. A complete facility combining the tradition of Spa’s thermal spring therapies and the notion of pleasure, comfort, tranquility, companionship… : mineral water baths at 33° from the natural Clementine spring, steam baths in the hammams and their ceremonies or dry heat baths in the traditional or naturist saunas, water games in the 800m² of indoor and outdoor pools, aquagym sessions, relaxation areas by the light of a Wood’s lamp and aromatherapy or under an infra red lamp, wraps or peat and mineral water baths… In its 60 private booths, the Wellness and Beauty centre offers treatments and therapies spanning balneotherapy, massages, beauty treatments and «body and mind» modules. Spa clients benefit from the expertise of a professional team (carbonated, Niagara, Thalaxion, peat, etc…), massages (Spa shower, sub-aqua, anti-cellulitis), covering purely beauty treatments, reflexology, shiatsu and many others besides…

“the famous Spa thermen.. missing some grandeur”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2013

We went on a monday morning to avoid queueing and this made it a great experience, but unfortunately a lot of comments here on trip advisor are true.; It's nothing more then a nice swimming pool with only 1 sauna and 1 hammam. Even on this very calm day we had to search a place in the hammam. The bar/resto felt very cheap (plastic) but was rather expensive (priced).
there where enough deck chairs today but I can image the problems on a buzzy day ...

Hence it's famous name I don't doubt there are better alternatives to visit.

“Modern, well designed and good value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2013 via mobile

We did a day trip to the Spa in spa. It is a modern building on top of a hill, with excellent facilities at a good price (euro 20 for 3 hours, including pool, jacuzzi, sauna, steam room and relaxation area). Treatments were fully booked on the Saturday we were there but run about 60-80 euro. There is also a choice of nude/clothed sauna and steam room.

The spa is modern and spacious, cool but not clinical. Check in gives you a token - you use this to get in, get a locker, and get out, so do not lose it ! Water was pleasantly warm, staff seemed fine, and the pools were not too crowded, with unused loungers available. We also spent an hour in the town which feels quite prosperous - casino and other impressive buildings, plus an old spa building downtown etc. we will return !

“Lovely place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2013

Very relaxing place to spend a day, low key and family orientated. Refurbished quite recently apparently. Not lavish, but pleasant, clean and a nice place to spend some time with friends.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2013

Tha spanis very big. You do not notice that there is a lot of peaple in there. But you can see it in the changing romms, they are like in public swinning pools. Acept for that the water ver of a nice temperature. There are lots of options.

“Nice place for an afternoon but not really a spa experience”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

Don't forget to bring your bathing suit, towel and toiletries. I thought that Les Thermes would be more lika a spa but this is a swimming bath where couples and families with teenage children (+15 for the saunas) can enjoy pools indoors and outdoors and a hamman, a sauna with orange scent and beautiful view over Spa and a relax room with comfortabel seating in the dark.
