Close friend and I wanted to get away for a couple of days. We were a bit rowdy when we arrived and the woman checking us in had a great sense of humor about it. We loved the private hot spring pool and convenience of location. All staff members we met were very friendly and fun!

We stayed in "the cottage" and it was one of the best times of our life. The downsides and the ONLY reasons that I did not give it the strongest rating is that I do feel that it is overpriced and there is a train very nearby that is bothersome while you are trying to relax. It isn't too terribly... More

The staff was super sweet. Our massages were awesome! We loved our stay at the Aura Soma Lava. Our room was clean and quiet & in a great location. The private hot pool was really nice & surrounded by beautiful trees. We parked our car and walked to the public pools and across the street for a great breakfast at... More

We stopped over here after flying to Salt Lake City to go to Yellowstone and it was a lovely village. Nice place, air con drowned out any road noise, the pool was quiet and clean and the staff were friendly. Bigger beds would have been nice but great otherwise.

The room we reserved was accidentally given to someone else, but we were given a room that was better, so it worked out just fine. The room was clean and comfortable. It has it's own hot pool, so you don't have to pay to go to the hot pools in Lava. It is right in the center of town within... More

The house was charming, but flawed. We were a little disappointed in the price point for the condition of the house. Paint peeling on door frames, a gaping hole at least 15" square, probably an access for the attic, in the ceiling of the bathroom (right over the toilet) really freaked our children out and was unappealing for the adults...

Flew into SLC and drove here as a stopping point before we headed out to Yellowstone. Late flight meant late arrival. We got there at 1am to which we called the number on the door. Immediately, the attendant came down the street and opened the lobby and checked us into room 6. Parking was full in the back but found... More

I have stayed at Aura Soma since 2007. It was always my absolutely favorite place to stay in Lava Hot Springs. Somehow, the refurbishing has caused a rise in prices and a slip in service. I stayed in Unit 13 The Galleria room. It was adequate with two smaller double beds and a huge bathroom. The front desk gal, sadly... More
