If you have questions about these or other aspects of the property, ask our front desk staff upon arrival or contact us before your visit.

      • Please shower before entering the pools.

      • Observe a reasonable time limit for your soak; 15 minutes is recommended.
      • Soaking alone is not recommended.
      • After soaking, your body is tired. A rest time of 30 minutes is recommended.
      • Limit your consumption of alcohol. Please remember long exposure and/or consumption of alcohol may cause dizziness, nausea, or fainting.

      • Smoking is permitted only in the designated smoking area near the front entrance.

      • Drink plenty of water to stay hydrated throughout your visit.
      • Wear proper swim attire. No street clothes, underwear, pajamas, sweats, or anything deemed inappropriate as swimwear by staff is allowed in the pools.

      • We do not recommend pregnant women soak in the hot pools and suggest you speak with your physician before doing so.
