A Great Trip

We really enjoyed the Bathhouses. It was great to see all the old buildings and see how the thermal baths were back in the day. It was nice to walk around.

Main reason for this trip 672 Miles from Gatlinburg, Tn. was to have this experience again. It was all that we remembered and expected. The staff was super. We got the hot mineral baths and the Pedicure, Yes pedicure are great for men also. After the bath and Pedicure you are both Tired (RELAXED) and refreshed. No visit would be... More

There is a selection of 4 pools of different temperatures. No limit on time is pools and you switch back and forth as you like. The facility is well organized and clean.

This was my first spa visit and it was so very relaxing. The only thing I wish was different is that they have a couples massage. I got the deluxe package which was discounted from 83 to 79 dollars. I received a long soak in mineral water, oil scrub, a sitz bath in the mineral water, a steam in the... More

Don't read if you like surprises. First, the parking: There is free parking in a parking garage that runs parallel To Central Ave--then a 1-block walk straight to Buckhouse. 2nd: The crowd: no line at all at early morning September weekday. I was told Summer and Spring break can cause lines but usually not so bad during other times of... More

I am from New Jersey, on vacation in Arkansas. This place was a disaster. I drove from Clarksville Arkansas to Hot Springs, a two hour ride. I spoke with the receptionist in length asking questions before I left. She NEVER told me I had to be there BEFORE 2:50. I was furious when I got there at 2:50 only to... More

Something about that water. I actually live in another state and have water in glass bottles delivered to my home. Presidents have had this in the White House. Very healing waters. Got the whole package and I felt the most relaxed in ages. The mineral bath, vapor cabinet, needle shower, sitz bath, Swedish massage was simply one of the most... More

I took this bath for $33 that included the hot tub, the heat and cool packs afterwards, a vapor treatment, the sitz tub and the final shower. The whole experience lasted about 1 hour and it's worth for the money!!

I'll skip the parts about the process and what all you get as it's been noted in all the other reviews. Note: forget being modest and go naked! You'll be wrapped in a sheet, but your attendant will see your body on occasion to wrap you and in the bath when she's using the loofah. LaToya was my attendant and... More

First time visiting Hot Springs and treated ourselves to an old fashioned bath and massage. We really enjoyed the experience and am very glad we did it. Soaking in the hot mineral bath and the massage were just two of the highlights. There was so much more that made this enjoyable and worth the cost. The staff was very professional,... More
