“Superbly restful family afternoon in the pools”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

The entry fee of SF25 for adults & SF17 for kids seems steep for three hours - every extra half hour is SF5. In fact, it's superb value. All the water is beautifully warm, there are lots of discrete sttendants not only keeping everyone safe but also keeping kids calm and quiet - other people's brats will not spoil your day. The main pool with its sprays and circular current section are big enough, with side pool full of jacuzzi type bubbles. The inside pool with underwater music is relaxing - and the relaxation rooms in the child-free lodges are superb. Now, if that makes it sound cheerless and non-family friendly, the opposite is true: kids can't run amok, but they still have a great time. My 11 & 14 year old loved it. Everyone loved it. With the heat, three hours is just perfect - a luxurious, clean, fun, relaxing way to spend an afternoon. Highly recommended

“Great way to relax”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 28, 2013

Lavey les bains is a favorite in this region. The thermal baths is great, lots of features even the children (from 4) can have fun.
Only drawback is that since its popular, it gets crowded and the queue can really be long. Avoid around official holidays or go as early as one can. Though I've been there when it is really crowded, apart from the queue to get in, the thermal heat always relaxes me. Also, fee is for 3 hours (minimum), it is more than enough.

Also, I notice they clean the floors every so often.
Never miss this.

“A spot of heaven on earth”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 11, 2013

I have been to Les Bains de Lavey about 30 times since I was born and it has always felt like a break in the space-time continuum. For me, these thermal baths are one of the best in the country and you can truly relax there. The choice of activities is quite large with different kind of sauna, steam baths, turkish baths, a color therapy room, different kind of jacuzzis, whirlpool rapids, dark rest rooms and of course a very large outdoor heated pool. The best to do is to go there when it's snowing, it is a great experience! Also, the atmosphere gets even chillier and more romantic during nightime. By the way, it is a good place to bring your better half. On the other hand, it is not the best place to go with children since it is really a place to relax, and adults there expect to do so. The prices are a bit high, like everywhere in Switzerland, but it is worth every swiss francs. The only downside might be the behaviour of some people there: some use to speak out loud in the sauna while it is suposed to be a chill place...

“A great way to use a rainy day!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2013

Three hours at this thermal spa will cost you 25 Swiss francs, and it is worth every last one of them. You actually get 5 hours in the summer for the price of 3! Turkish baths, saunas, large jacuzzis, whirlpool rapids, large thermally heated pools with massage jets at every height from feet to neck, bubbling massage beds, overhead water jets, sensory rooms & quiet rooms with deckchairs. It was busy but always possible to to try everything without a queue. Came away feeling refreshed and relaxed! Fab way to occupy a dreary, drizzly foggy day by the lake. I took my mother and her sister who are both in their eighties, they loved it! It is a great place to take anyone of any age.

“Hottest thermal water!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 24, 2013

It is always a joy to be here, expecially in winter, when it is really cold: the thermal water is so hot, that you will be swimming outside, by 35celsius, even if it is snowing! Pleasant hotbath, generous jacuzzis, a lot of place to swim, or just enjoy your time
