“Not to worry, be prepared and go!”
Reviewed September 1, 2012

We went here as a part of private tour; monkey island, champa tower(po nagar) and here.
So no hasstle to be forced to by expensive ticket or massages. We had mud bath, mineral water bath and swimming pools. As for I do not have many experience in spas or bardens abroad, I was a bit worrying about its state of hygene. Like 'shareing mud pool which is there all day in this heat?!'
But this was cleared. They fill your's or your gourp's tub each time. When you get out, they drain out and wash out all the mud from the tub. I could relax after I saw this.
I think I missed out some of the facilities and service, this place is huge.
We went there around noon on Wendeseday. It was not packed at all. But seeing the number of sun beds around the swimming pool.......I do not want to imagin what it is like to be here when it is full as other reviewers say.

Overall I can recomend this place, worth going. But before going, read reviews and prepare what to avoid and get some idea of many facilities. Mineral muds are soothing and relaxing, this is true!

“Nice way to spend a few hours”
Reviewed September 1, 2012

Chill out in the mud spa for a few hours pretty cheaply. You do need to get a taxi there though but its an enjoyable experience on a hot day.

“Worth a Visit, but dont wear your favorite trunks”
Reviewed August 31, 2012

It's definitely worth a visit to the Hot Springs. I wasnt planning on doing the mud baths but for 100vnd ($5usd) its worth a try. You start out by placing all your items in a locker (20vnd deposit returned to you at the end) keep your camera with you for pics and bring a small towel to wipe the mud of your face. You then walk to the mineral shower to do a quick rinse. Then they fill up an empty tub with mud and have you get in with about 4-5 other people. The mud drains out slowly sort of like a sand timer and thats when you know you are done. (I wouldnt advise pouring the mud on your face. These 2 girls did and ended up tasting the mud). After the mud bath you go bake on the sun deck. Then you take another mineral shower to wash out the mud. YES, its everywhere you can imagine. Now you go to a hot mineral bath. Same group of people will share if you stay together. Then after that its the small waterfalls and relax time at the pools. One pool was hot and one was cold, of course it didnt feel cold at all. You can stay here for the rest of the day if you are not with a tour. Overall experience was, glad I did it.

“Pictures don't do it justice”
Reviewed August 30, 2012

Thought that this looked a bit tacky from the pictures on the internet, but it is really tastefully done and to a standard i would expect in Europe.

You only need to pay D100,000 for a 'Collective' ticket (mud bath & mineral water bath & 2 hot swimming pools) rather than the much more expensive private ticket, but don't worry you aren't thrown into a tub with loads of other people as they have loads of small pools they fill with mud so you'll end up in your own personal pool anyway (NB we went at about 10am on a weekday, it might be much busier at weekends so you might be made to share).

I was also impressed by the fact that lockers were free (D20,000 deposit), deck chairs / sun loungers were free, and towel rental was only D10,000 (don't want to use your own!).

We had a busy day so only spent 2 hrs there, but could have taken books and chilled out by the pool all day.

Don't get caught out by the place with the similar name that's on the road if you're driving yourself - the entrance has lots of street vendor stalls next to it selling water / snacks / etc.

“Great couples day out”
Reviewed August 28, 2012

Paid about £13 each for private mud baths, private mineral bath, massages, fruit, water and then unlimited swimming and relaxing in the pools. Had an amazing day out staff were fantastic massage def recommended. Hot pools are soooo relaxing and skin felt really good afterwards. Only regret is that we didn't have chance to do this again.
