I went with my sister as a birthday treat. We showered and then soaked in iron bathtubs filled with scalding hit water and local seaweed. We felt like mermaids. The seaweed oils softened our skin, and the beneficial effects last for days. I'll definitely be going again.

I love this place we have been 4 times and it is always good. We book the twin bath and just relax in the warmth of a seaweed bath for an hour fantastic. The experience is wonderful and if you have muscle, joint or skin problems well worth it. Towels are supplied bring your own music and a week drink... More

The staff were very professional and explained everything I needed to know about having a seaweed bath. Very clean small private rooms with a preliminary steam box (or room), a shower and a bath,...

My wife and I enjoyed a seaweed bath here and we fairly enjoyed our experience, the staff where great and the option to pick your own music that you wish to be played throughout is fun, though the damp smell within the bathing rooms is a little off putting.

I was fortunate to be staying for a couple of nights in the beautiful apartment just above the spa. We had everything we needed for a comfortable stay including a fully equipped kitchen with an oceanfront view! I started my relaxation with a seaweed bath which included fresh salt water right from the tap. This was followed by a deep... More
