Spent 6 hours enjoying the pools and spa. Private steam excellent. Private thermal pool unnecessary. Wonderful!

A great selection of thermal pools for all ages. Given the alpine environment would be good if there was a cold plunge pool available too (cryotherapy). Sulphur pools especially good and apparently the only ones not tainted with chlorine

This is a bit like a theme park, but is absolutely a must do. Great for all ages. The cafe offers good food and you can also bring in your own snacks (just no glass items).
