Each of the villas are equipped with a Private Pool and an Outdoor Bath. In addition to this is the villa’s most prized feature - the outdoor sunken Jacuzzi with a direct hook-up to the geothermal hot springs. Where else would you find something like that?

Another unique feature of the rooms is that one does not have to be afraid about losing their rooms keys. The keys are in the form of a waterproof bracelet with a chip which cannot fall out from your hand. 

 

Moving on from the Villas…  What is so unique about this place?

This is one of the resorts where the wellness options are absolutely natural. No artificial saunas or rooms built for meditation & yoga. Naturally formed caves and hot springs form the centre of the wellness therapies.

They have natural hot springs with temperatures ranging between 40- 70 degrees. At the edges of this lake they have the Geothermal dipping pots that enables you to take a dip and enjoy the hot/ warm spring water. If you find the water too hot, you can just switch on the cold water tap and adjust the water temperature to your liking.

Meditation Cave

The Meditation Cave within the grounds of the Retreat is a marvel of nature and exquisitely preserved. With calming temperatures, the natural granite and limestone cave ensures complete relaxation. 

The Crystal cave is a smaller cave installed with natural as well as artificial amethyst and quartz crystals that facilitate metaphysical healing. The cave has some cushions laid on the ground with a calm ambience around it.

The next is the Thermal Steam Cave that serves as a natural sauna. This place has a platform setup up overlooking the hot springs. Temperatures are really high in here at about 60 to 70 degrees and one of the most loved places by guests.

Another extreme way is to step foot into the Ice bath. To be done immediately after being in the steam cave, this experience is very unique.  

Next visit can be to the Doctor Fish Pool. This is exotic Garra Rufa fish bite off the dead skin cells while you can enjoy the tingling feeling on your feet.
