Pool temperatures range from 37-43 degrees Celsius and it may take a minute or two for you to become accustomed to the heat, but the health benefits outweigh the initial warmth. Mineralised water contents can assist with muscular issues, arthritis, cardiovascular disease and stress and will leave you feeling rejuvenated and relaxed.
The best bathing experiences on offer include the thalasso therapy hydro jet pool, where you can sit in one of six seats overlooking the lake as water jets massage your body. After, if you dare, dip into the bitter cold plunge pools, which will help increase blood circulation and metabolism and decrease muscular inflammation. Once you’ve treated your body, it’s time to stimulate the feet at the reflexology walk, where you can tread upon ten different kinds of stones which will encourage circulation and relaxation. For the most spectacular views of the Peninsula, wind your way up to the hilltop pool where you can soak up the 360-degree views of green rolling pastures.
For a truly tranquil experience visit the Spa Dreaming Centre, where you can choose from a menu of treatments including body wraps, massages, facials, bamboo showers, luxurious private bathing pavilions and, if you’re feeling peckish, you can wander into the Spa Dreaming Centre Café for breakfast and lunch.
