The pool is very large and there are lots of facilities, but the surroundings are really glum and the restaurant soso.

“Perfect relaxation!”
Reviewed January 3, 2012

Having been once before to Lavey-les-Bains, a trip mid-skiing holiday was a must for my friends and I.

For a very reasonable price (CHF25) you get 3 hours time to access the thermal baths. You get given a key card which lets you through and also works in your locker. Changing facilities were very clean when we visited with ample lockers. We did queue for the toilet before we showered but it wasn't really for that long. After showering we put our towels in a large shelving rack whilst we went in the pools etc.
There is one indoor and two outdoor naturally heated pools. We mainly used the large outdoor pool which has several features including water fountains, jacuzzi's, a whirlpool and an area to sit/lie back under the water and be pummelled with water jets.
We also used the hammam (a steam room) and the sensory room (a timetabled room with approx 10 chairs. Every 20 minutes a different sequence of music is played - the time slots are colour coded so you can choose a specific mood of music).

Overall a very enjoyable and relaxing experience. Off course if you wish you can purchase additional treatments.

We travelled by train to St Maurice. If doing this I would recommend getting bus for CHF3. It is possible to walk but is better signed from Lavey to St Maurice rather than vice versa. It is about a 30min walk.

“Swimming in a Hot Spring, Surrounded by Snow-Capped Mountains”
Reviewed December 30, 2011

Relaxing, completely unique experience. Highly recommended! If you are tired, stressed, or just in need of some down time, this is the place to go. A few hours in the warm springs with the cold mountain air is invigorating. There also is a sauna, a hammam, plunge pools and many other relaxing areas of the center. You also can get a massage, although I didn't find it nearly as relaxing as just enjoying the baths themselves.
TIP: Bring a towel, as they do not supply towels. THere are vanity mirrors and hairdryers for afterwards as well.
