“Broken peace”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 14, 2013 via mobile

My girlfriend and I visited the I-resort to seek the tranquility that we expected from a spa day. The facilities there are brilliant and would recommend people visit, however, the facility is quite family and child orientated. Without generalising, other visitors were very loud and as a result the experience was not the relaxing zenn we were looking forward to. It must be said that despite the resort being a reasonable trip out of town ($6-7 one way in a taxi) the day is value for money even though we arrived in the mid afternoon as other reviews recommend this to miss the crowds. One final note which disturbs the peace is that the resort is located slap bang on a railway line. Consistent with other forms of transport through vietnam, the passing trains exploit the ability to use their horn. All this in mind I would recommend visiting and the experience was value for money but if we were to do it again maybe we would spend a little more for something more exclusive and less commercial.

“Beautiful setting for a relaxing day out.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 24, 2013 via mobile

The resort is located a short cab ride out of town, about 25 minutes outside of the main centre. Surrounded by tropical gardens, there are a number of small mud baths along with mineral pools, waterfalls and various water jet contraptions to keep things interesting. The resort is clean, well shaded and the mud in each bath is replaced after each use. Despite planning to go in the afternoon, the manager at our hotel strongly recommended we go as early in the day as possible to ensure the mud would be fresh and as she suggeted "more hygienic".
There is a large restaurant area which sells tasty and inexpensive food and drinks. They also have their own comfortable cars and golf buggies to get you home afterwards at standard taxi prices. We really enjoyed our time here and I swear my skin felt delicious afterwards! :)

“Fun experience, nice setting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 22, 2013

Was very interesting trying to communicate, I know no Vietnamese and most of the girls directing us knew about the same amount of English, so lots of guess work all round, pretty funny at times. The mud bath was fun, not as thick and muddy as I had expected, quite warm and slippery, not sure of any actual benefit, but still fun to do. The mineral water bath following was a little too warm for us, we hopped in and out used the waterfall to cool down. The waterfall near the mud baths is nicer than the other ones no matter what the staff tell you.
We went to the restaurant and had a few choices as part of our package, the kids didn't want anything from this and we ordered from the menu, my daughters food never arrived.
Lovely day out.

“Fun baths, beautiful spa”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 6, 2013

Of the three mud baths in the town this was the only one our guide recommended, and on arrival a few minutes from the town centre it was immediately obvious why. The spa is sophisticated, beautifully laid out and offers everything from fun mud baths for couples and groups to spa treatment, pools and waterfalls, with as much shade as you could want. The pools are surrounded by loads of comfortable sun loungers, clean sand, with adjacent bar and restaurant. The staff were helpful and friendly - and all for a very reasonable price. No negative points whatsoever, and you could easily spend half a day or longer enjoying the facilities.

“Mud bath info”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 24, 2013

Hi, we read the wonderful review and arrived at 330 pm to miss the crowds, 400,000 dong from nha trang for taxi, 20 u.s. dollars, not bad to get in with private mud bath for two 600,000 thirty u.s. dollars and it was great to be the only couple in mud baths , we were told to get out and shower after exactly 20 minutes, we asked for 10 more minutes and were rudely told. No end of story, keeping in mind we were the only ones in the mud and hours before they closed and rude to boot it saddened us as we read other people stayed 40 minutes, the place is amazing and that was a bummer but now you know what to expect and you will have a nice time....
