Water was very much lukewarm, not hot at all. There is a small pool that you can wade in. Then there's a bigger pool where you can swim. But at the time of our visit, the bigger pool was empty. The place has a lot of potential if only the water was indeed hot.

From a tip, we tried Ardent. A little hesitant but sooner did I realize it was worth the effort. Tired muscle becomes supple as the hot springs bring melancholy to aching body. Try and see this wonderful oasis.

When we got there, the water is cold and only up to knee high. they said the spring have stopped flowing since march which is a shame as you can see that they really developed the place.

We were surprised that when we got there, the main pool was closed for renovation. Not so nice after a long motorbike ride. We at least touched the water how "hot" was the water and it wasnt hot at all. I dont understand. Or maybe the main pool is thats close. We'll never know. We ended going home... Tsk tsk... More

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.
