About
Re-ground yourself in the heart of the mountain rainforest, a uniquely Dominican experience. Relax under the shade of the forest trees, with nothing but the sound of wild birds and water cascading over rocks. All our thermal pools are sourced and heated naturally from the local mountain geothermal springs. With pools of a wide range of temperatures we're sure you'll find one thats right for you.

Bongo baths is a lovely sulfur bath embedded in a very pretty tropical garden. My SO and I were lucky enough to have the whole bath for ourselves and it was the most relaxing experience ever. Helen - one of the owners even brought us a very good rum punch while we were enjoying the bath.
We went to another bath on another day, but dont bother, this one is the real deal and very beautifully located.

Pro tip: You can find out the arrival days of cruise ships in dominica online. This pretty much affects all attractions that are easily accessible near roseau - just avoid them when a ship is present and plan your days around them. It will be crowded as hell and spoil the experience and the same place will be empty the next day.

We visited this place via our cruise ship. It’s about a 30 minute ride from the port. Beautiful rain forest setting. There about 6 pools, all with cement bottoms so no special shoes needed. Some pools are warmer than others and the cold pools are quite refreshing. You are warmly greeted by the owner. Plan on about 30 minutes in the water. I did not notice any “sulpher” smell. Clean!!

Beautiful tranquil place to relax and forget about the world outside. Fabulous setting amongst the trees and mountains of Dominica, you'll lose track of time as you lay back and enjoy the naturally hot volcanic waters. Friendly welcome from the owner Helen, who has created the perfect place to escape with your thoughts.

I work for a cruise line and escorted a group there, we were just dropped off there and nobody received us, no introduction, no information at all.
On the way out, there was a guy serving rum and fruit punch.
Some areas are abandoned, no maintenance.
Pools are ok. Place is shaded, nature is beautiful.

Visited as part of a rainforest excursion booked for our Viking cruise.
Nestled amongst the thick forest, a series of five pools, each warmer than the last, filled with mineral rich spring water. Thoroughly relaxing, as the sulfur rich water soothes the muscles. Finish with a quick dip in the cold pond under the waterfall!
Just remember to rinse all of the yellow mineral residue out of your swimming clothes.
Changing rooms, restroom, and an outdoor shower available.
Well worth the visit, especially after a ride up and down the bumpy mountain roads!

An excursion to the Bongo Baths was offered by our cruise. Very scenic trip up into the misty mountains on narrow winding - sometimes very rough - roads to get there. Located in the heart of the rainforest, the Baths are thermal pools heated by mountain geothermal springs. We were warmly welcomed by Helen, one of the owners of the Baths. There are changing rooms, 2 bathrooms, and about 6 pools of varying temperatures, including very hot ones and colder ones. There is also a very cold pool with a waterfall, if you are brave enough. About halfway through our hour’s visit, they brought us slices of bananas, coconut and grapefruit all grown on the premises, a very nice touch. We also received a fruit punch, available with or without rum before we left. Helen told us they drain and clean the pools every 3 days. Very peaceful plus the benefits of soaking in the sulfur springs. Definitely recommend it.

This was a relaxing way to recuperate from the excitement of Titou Gorge. The pools seemed to be well-maintained and they were all at very acceptable temperatures. Surrounding foliage made for some very nice photos, too.

Helen, a welcoming hostess is the force behind this lovely and thoroughly enjoyable spot off the beaten path. A tropical paradise.

Did a celebrity excursion including Titou Gorge and the hot baths. The Bongo Baths are at the end of the tour. Multiple bath areas with various temperatures. Changing rooms and bathrooms on site. Hot baths were very relaxing

Brother had visited here before as part of a trip and recommended we go there on a recent cruise. What a gem well worth booking as an independent trip rather than as part of another excursion as you can easily spend longer here.
Hot spring baths set in the rain forest absolutely beautiful, owner is British and very helpful and welcoming. Cant praise high enough
