Peninsula Hot Springs has bathing pools containing geothermal water which has been heated naturally and emerged from the earth's crust to deliver delightful relaxation.

There are 20 pools including the family bathing pool, cave pool, hilltop pool with panoramic view of the meadows and hills. The family bathing area is at the bottom of the hill. It is a great place to let your hair down and spend some care-free, fun time with your family. In this area, the water is shallow and less hot than in the other pools. There are also kiddie pools to make the little ones delirious with joy. Take advantage of the double swing beds to lie down and family change rooms next to the family bathing area. Connect with your kids and join in some aqua fun.

If the kids are feeling adventurous you could try the Hamam and the Sauna. The Turkish steam bath (Hamam) is actually quite hot inside with steam fogging up the enclosed space. The wash-basins filled with cold water offer respite from the heat. After the Hamam, consider taking a dip in the cold plunge pool outside to cool down. Remember the cold plunge pool is quite deep, so only let kids into this pool if they are quite tall. Then head to the Sauna followed by a nice cool shower.

And when you start feeling the pangs of hunger, visit the Bath House Cafe next to the family bathing area and sink your teeth into gourmet pizza, tasty baked products and more. Vegetarian and vegan options are also available.
