Visited as a day guest at the spa as we were staying at a nearby home, so can't speak to the accommodations....
But the spa was amazing. Thought we would experience something different and try out the mudbath and pools. Didn't know what to expect - given it is mud and sulphur you are dealing with.
The spa was clean. Though not what I would call five star resort style-spa, I loved the character: whitewash wooden walls, relaxation music, lots of cucumber water, fountains, etc.
Everyone should try a mudbath at least once. The mud itself was a 'different' experience. But DIVINE. Like sitting in a tub of warm thick chocolate pudding. Not 'stinky' as I had half expected. Glad I wore an old bathing suit though as I am more modest/ self-conscious. Also, I am not claustrophobic but wonder that some people who do may feel as little closed in by the mud around your body up to your neck.
The mud made my skin feel like butter, although I did have a slight reaction on my face (I have sensitive skin). The cleansing bath afterwards was so relaxing too..
Took a swim in the Olympic sized pool afterwards.... Had the whole pool to ourselves, in fact. The water was clear and the perfect temperature.
All in all a fantastic experience.... Was completely chillaxed for 2 whole days afterwards.
