Had a great peaceful and relaxing time there nestled in the bush right in the middle of town. Great service from all the staff and the hot pools were all different in layout and there is even a grotto. You can just spend an hour or have a full day of pas and massages.

peaceful, beautiful, clean, luxury. We had an hour's paradise here drinking cocktails (the non alcoholic ones looked just as good as the real ones and tasted great). The result o true hard work and perseverance (read the story behind it on their website under about us).
Excellent showers, changing facilities, towels, robes etc. bar and food looked nice but we didn't have time to investigate. cocktails were served to you in the pool.
I'd happily go back and purchase one of their more expensive packages

The most wonderful place :) Very relaxing and the staff are just great. They provide food and drinks by the pool if you choose and its a great place to go to get away from your a while. We loved it and will be back very soon.

On a day when the winter weather had become all too much and the stress of life was catching up with me, I decided the time had come for a group of friends and I to share in a little indulgence and pampering. From the minute we arrived a little uncertainly, clutching swimsuits and jackets to our departure feeling rested and totally relaxed, we were in another world. The reception staff were superb convincing us even before we'd decided to spend an hour or two in one of the warm pools, that this was indeed just what we were looking for and a little bit of "heaven on earth". After wallowing in the delicious warm waters we indulged even further by ordering cocktails and an antipasto platter to share. With palm fronds waving overhead, lulled by tropical island music and with stories to share, we simply relaxed and forgot about all the things that had been causing stress over the past few months. A little bit of island paradise without the need for plane fare or passport.

What a great place for a soak in a natural hot pool. Great surroundings with all the native plants you really feel like being lost in the bush
