Great experience in the private thermal pools. Interesting woodland walk to see the source of the hot water. Good $10 worth. Would visit again and recommend it to others. Very helpful and friendly staff.

Just like a school pool with hot water in it, but quiet as off the beaten track, also a walk next door around the bubbling mud
