  • Pricey, from accommodation, food and other services. Everything is overpriced. Nobody speaks English there, you can not communicate. Service horrible , dirty facility.

  • Honestly I thought this was going to be gross and super packed with people. But it was very relaxing and therapeutic. The Lake is gigantic and there enough space to spread out in the water. There are different depths and parts to the spa as well. There is a super deep part and then there are sulfur baths. Spent most of my time in the outside lake part and on the sun chairs. You pay and get a wrist band that tracks you. Different pricing for how long you want to stay.
  • A well organized spa with medical and healing waters. There is place to buy food and also rent ‘floaters’ which I recommend since the lake can be rather deep. I did not take any therapies but various one are available. The staff is very helpful! I realized I had left my mobile phone behind as soon as I left the place, and they had already found it! Amazing! Highly recommendable to anyone wishing to try natural healing waters.
