“Relaxing and unusual”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2014

This attraction is very close to Nadi and one of the cheapest around. Our whole family loved the experience and even went back a second time. You don't need to go on a tour to experience this. Taxi's take you from Nadi and wait for you for about FJD$50. I recommend going in the morning or later in the afternoon when it is a bit cooler. The massage (Bobo) was relaxing. Wear your ols swimmers as the lining tends to stain.

“Nothing special”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2014

The mud was novel at first but we lost interest after 5 minutes and the facilities to wash the mud off (and other facilities for that matter) were extremely basic.

It cost us $170 to get the taxi there and back excluding admission which didn't help.

“An unexpected day!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2014

Had a wonderful unexpected visit here. It was a lot of fun! I was traveling on my own and had an overnight stay before moving on to the Yasawa Islands. My driver Aryan that drove me from the Coral coast suggested Sabeto hot springs when I asked for somethings to do for the afternoon. If you have a couple of hours to spare this is a fun place to go (combine it with the wonderful Garden of the sleeping Giants). Run by a wonderful and fun family and i meet the Chief Lu-Mu-Ni (apologize if I got the spelling wrong) and his wonderful family.The mud is warm and you will laugh while putting it on (they don't let you miss a single spot). You get a soft skin as a bonus. Talk to the family and get the full history of the place, it grows on you by the minute! They are wonderful and a big part of the experience.

“The dirtiest fun and relaxation to share with family and friends”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2014

Suffering from the trauma of finishing our 7 night cruise of the yasawa islands with captain cook cruises our family of 5 with 3 of our new found cruise friends ventured off to reminisce about the best week of our collective lives. Not wanting our time together to end we happily chatted as our driver 'tonga' skillfully negotiated his way over some very 'rural' roads. Upon reaching the springs we were given the guided tour and we escorted into the mud bath. Such a strange sensation as you walk into unknown 'ooze' and allow a lovely Fijian man to apply said 'ooze' to your face! We were in hysterics seeing each other transformed into mud creatures. After exiting to apply mud from a bucket to the rest of our/ each other's bodies we 'baked' until crusty as we wandered thru the handicraft stalls run by the local village women. After rinsing off and working our way thru the 2 other hot springs at our leisure we all agreed that this was yet another precious Fijian experience filled with simplicity , beauty and the most wonderful people. If you have a couple if hours to spare this is a must do

“Fun in the mud”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2014

We had a blast - I haven't had so much fun playing in the mud for years... we all enjoyed it and wouldn't miss it on our next visit to Fiji.
