This Place is amazing.

They have three separate pools. The main pool includes a smaller pool and a cave spa. The crater pool is warmer.

Water is provided free of charge as a self service but if you will prefer drink, they are available. Price is amazingly expensive too.

They have 2 types of admission. 1 hour admission and whole day admission. It's a shame they do not have something in between. They will give you an extra 30 minutes in the 1 hour admission for changing and shower time

Bring your own towel as towels will cost you extra if you need one.

No children is allowed.

They do have facilities for shower but there is only one shower block so you may have to wait if they are busy.

Booking is not required unless you need a package with the massage.

We walked by the lost spring shop in the main road and we talked with Delphine the belgium girl and she highly recommended to go, she offers 1h30 for the price of 1hour and she said it s beautiful especially at night and she was right. As soon as we found a babysitter we could experience the thermal pool and it was amazing. The light in the pool were beautiful and we thought we were in another world. The pool were warm and hot and we enjoyed a lot our time there.

Lovely twist on an outdoor spa experience. We really enjoyed going after dark.... amazing to look up an see the sun and the moon whilst sipping cocktails in the spa pools.

Think it was a bit tight to charge extra for towels ... but definately worth a visit ;-)

Had the most fabulous time at the Lost Spring. A group of 5 of us had a wonderful pamper package that included a massage, platter (delicious), cocktail and all day pass. I recommend coming back to the hotpools at night to experience the lovely lighting.

Too many people made it impossible to get into a 'hot' pool at all. After 20 minutes with many others in the 'tepid' pool trying to get a chance to get anywhere near the hot pools, gave up and walked shivering back to overcrowded changing rooms and left. Beautiful surroundings and I am sure that on a normal weekend where the appropriate amount of people are in the appropriate space, it would be lovely. I have experienced many spas and that would rate as the coldest temperature I have experienced. Sorry.... it was to be one of the best parts of our weekend away and very, very disappointed.
