“Great expearience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2012

This is definately worth a visit, The salt float was great, right inside the crater. The floor of it is really hot and is a bit weaird. The journey there is very short. don't go with the Thomson reps, it is more exspensive and you have less time there.

“interesting experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2012

never done anything like this before - skin felt wonderful after floating in salt lake - please do not get the water on your face or in your eyes - it stings very much and apparently it can turn your jewellry black.

“Amazing!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2012

We went on a organised trip from the hotel, but was definitely the highlight for me. Floating in the saltwater is amazing and odd, and my skin was so soft after!!! Xxx
