Terrible service and hygiene standards
Aug 2021
I'll be honest, overall bath is ok and experience of sulfur bath as such is good. However entire experience was spoiled by service and fact that they did not use new-disposable shower sponge (the one they use to scrab you), when i realized that its used and how many people they scrab with this i came to reception and aks them why you dont use new one, they said: because you did not pay for new one, i replied that they didnt even offer, i thought that its already included in price of massage- receptionist did not even said sorry and made up face expression that she wants me out of their place. So service is bad and if you visit, ask them new scrub sponge otherwise you can catch any skin infection.
The rest is ok, very ordinary bath close to public baths in terms of quality

Simple Public Bath
Aug 2021
The public bath was simple. 8 Lari to ener. Massage cost 10 Lar or 10 Lari for a scrub. It is a 5 minute process, but enjoyable. We have done baths before so this was a simple experience. Nothing fancy. I am sure there are "Fancy" experiences....but for a few dollars, you can have a nice experience.

OK but they're not honest

I got a private room as it wasn't first time, just wanted to sample it. After about 25 minutes of the hour, the lady comes in, "Five minutes, five minutes". I think 1) it's opportunistic scamming - only happens if they have more customers waiting and 2) they try to take advantage of you feeling vulnerable through nakedness and language barrier. Well, lady, you chose to walk in on me having a bath - that's your lookout. Anyway, just hold your nerve.
So, the experience us fine but if you're expecting Western spa levels of cleanliness and service, go to a spa in a Western country. Here, you're getting something different. Very refreshing and I didn't get any massage or anything- just used the baths and sauna.

Bath # 5
Dec 2019 • Solo
I read so many strange stories about all the baths! So to keep it simple: I stayed near the sulphur baths so I could have a daily soak. They are all close to each other. This one is old and run down but it's the water that counts. Pay GEL 5 for entrance. Change to birthday suit. The guy at the desk will lock reopen 4u and offer tea 4 free. The water is bloody hot. There's also a sauna. Shower b4 and after your soak. A good scrub and lathering costs GEL 20. LASTS 10/15 MIN. Massage as per say is not part of the Georgian culture. Enjoy!

After long walks in Tbilisi and its environs, visit Bath in Tbilisi.
Aug 2019
Huge room with two pools with very warm and cold water, a shower and sauna.
The bath needs to be ordered in advance.
Additionally, I highly recommend ordering soap message and peeling. After the bath, be sure to order herbal tea there and rest a bit.
If the company is large, and everyone wants a soap massage with peeling, then one hour is not enough.

Sulphur Bath Personal Experience
Mar 2019
The water in the bathtub is very hot and the shower is very cold. I rent a private room at Gulo's Therma Spa that cost me 80 Lari. The room inside is very beautiful but this is the only thing I could enjoy, ceramic tile on the walls. My sister could not accept the fact that the water is too hot and decided that is only our imagination. After 3 seconds in the bathtub, she refused from the idea to take a bath:) Some visitors recommend wrapping the whole body with a cotton sheet which you get on the entrance. I did not try. Did you?:)

worth experiencing
Oct 2019 • Couples
Do not expect a modern spa experience. It is an old room, with mold on the tiles joints. Lot of hot, sulphur stinky water, rusted changing rooms. If You order scrubbing, You will be scrubbed with the glove that has probably been used dozens of times already. Still worth going and experiencing in my opinion as this kind of places are disappearing.

Prices as expected: 5 GEL entrance, 2 GEL towel, 10 GEL scrub

5GEL for men, 4GEL for women for public
Jul 2019 • Couples
5GEL for men, 4GEL for women for public.
The reason is the facility is different. Men have bath and sauna. Women have hot showers only.
Lonely Planet says 3GEL for both sex so I confirmed the price the lady at ticket office yelled at me and showed the sign to show the current price. Terrible lady.
You have to bring shampoo, rinse, soap and towel and plastic slippers but you can buy if you don’t have. I didn’t have slippers nor money since my husband had wallet so I ended up taking shower by barefoot. You bring shampoo and soap to the shower room but not towel because there’s no place to put towel and ended up wetting it like me...
Hot water is great, with smell of sulfur.
Toilet is in the same space with walls surrounded.
You give the key to the women who are taking care the bath. These women push you to have massage, you choose.
Anyways it’s a good sulfur hot water to wash and clean you in the center of Tbilisi.

Trip to Tbilisi, Georgia and Sulfur Baths.
Sep 2019
Me and my friends visited Tbilisi in September 2019. It was overall a good trip. Although entering in Georgia with a Pakistani Passport is a bit tricky and mostly people from pakistan are denied entry in Georgia. But we did not fly directly to Georgia, instead what we did was we landed in Baku and stayed there for a couple of days and then took a late night bus from Baku to Tbilisi. The bus was comfortable and the tickets were reasonably priced. We arrived at Azerbaijan-Georgia land border early morning. We were 3 friends and all of us had valid US visas and two of us had used that visa and travelled to US previously. To avoid any hindrances, we carried our hotel booking in Tbilisi and travel insurances with us which we presented to the immigration officers. The immigration officers verified all our docts and valid US visas and asked some general questions about how long our stay is going to be and how much money we have etc etc which we answered confidently. Once the immigration officers were satisfied with us and our docts, they let us enter in Georgia. The same bus took us to Tbilisi city. The overall view and atmosphere of Tbilisi is nice and pleasant. It looks very beautiful with building and monuments from the past like the freedom square and narikala (fort). Lots of churches to go in and have a look around. Although we did not have enough time to spend as we had to leave for Batumi, we went to the visit the sulfur bath. It was a wonderful experience for us. As we entered the premises a friendly lady welcomed us and explained the details to us. We did not take the appointment a day before (which i strongly recommend that its better to book a day before), still that lady managed to squeeze us in for an hour as the room we went in was booked by someone else and was free for just one hour. After the formalities, we went in for our one hour session. The staff provided us with fresh towels, shampoo and soap for each of us. We entered in to this gigantic room with a huge pool for sulfur bath. There was toilet inside the room just incase if someone needed it. The water inside the pool was warm and infused with sulfur, it was very relaxing. Once we were done with the sulfur bath we headed to the suana for further relaxation. The overall experience was amazing. Eventually there were showers inside the room so we took the shower and ended our session. Just like that, an hour went by and came out extremely happy and refreshed. After that, the staff served us water and hot tea. It was a wonderful experience overall and I recommend it to other who are in Tbilisi or are planning to visit there in near future.
