Incredibly located in the mountains, with natural hot pools and waterfalls. Owner is very friendly and accommodating. Make a booking in advance: they don't let too many people in, so it doesn't get crowded. Ninavsworld

A lot of fun for both old and young. Very safety minded as you can see in the pictures. We had 16 family members and some of them were stretched beyond their comfort level a little bit. Great place to visit!
