We take the hygiene of our pools very seriously. Each night when we close, our pools are completely drained and thoroughly cleaned by our experienced pool team, ready to be refilled each morning with fresh natural geothermal mineral water from an underground reservoir 637 metres below the surface. As the water reaches the pools, the water is at a temperature of 45 degrees Celsius. Throughout the day, fresh thermal mineral water flows constantly into the pools to maintain warmth and cleanliness.
Just as we have a team caring for you, we also have a dedicated pool team caring for our water. Our team is constantly monitoring the water to keep a record of its condition. You may see Pool Attendants taking readings of each pool during your visit. In an extra effort to keep the water clean, there is a minimal amount of chlorine added, which is also regularly tested by our team of experts.
Unfortunately we cannot honour gift vouchers during the AWAKEN event. This is considered a private function so you will have to redeem at another time!
