All water that comes into this property is 80 degree celsius (175 degree fahrenheit) geothermal hot spring water, and includes a cooling system.

Research suggests they can have anti-inflammatory, pain relieving and antioxidant effects that may be especially helpful for people with inflammatory conditions like arthritis
