When I first went to this spring decades ago it was so very hot. When we visited it was lukewarm. The zoo beside it is downright depressing to visit.

Ardent is suffering from El Nino, and water needs to be trucked in for the pools. Hopefully after months of rain the hot water (any water) will return. The area is not being kept clean and there is a smell from stagnant water. And despite this, they are still charging admission?!?!?!? Very disappointing.

Ardent hotspring is experiencing drought right now, the water is so low and the water is no longer naturally hot. Accdg to my research, ardent waters are not pure anymore. It's already a mixture of cold and hot water.

we were informed prior to entering the resort that the water wasn't warm and less than a meter deep. since we were already there, it would be a waste to not take a dip. the warmest was the last pool but it was small so it felt crowded. maybe it's better during other parts of the year.

Ardent Hot Spring is a series of hot water pools ranges from 33 degrees Celsius – 38 degrees Celsius. The water is coming from the vent of Hibok Hibok volcano, the most recently active of the seven volcano on the island.

This is great place to have s dip in a natural hot spring worth the visit bring your shorts and towel. You can hire a table and have a Picnic too. It is great I will go again if I am in the area. This activity you must do if you are in the island.

Ardent Has been known for the above average warmth of the waters, thereby making it therapeutic. But from recent visit, Hot Bathroom showers are way more warmer than the spring. And there was an unpleasant smell from the sorroundings. I can't make out if it was garbage or stagnant water deposits. Such a waste it was not properly maintained, though... More

Water is not hot; it's not even decently lukewarm. Water is murky. What's good though are the snow-like things falling from the big trees.

There are several stages of water temperature....the first stage was really hot and getting milder as you go downwards ...you can have a back or body massage straight from the flow of the hot spring. The cottages nearby are nice as well as the foods being served.
