You’ll experience the affusion showers, aroma steam, a brine cavern, a bucket drench shower, a steamy grotto, a herbal sauna, a chilly ice igloo, a rain walk, sole therapy, a traditional hammam experience plus a dip in a vitality pool which consists of six different acupressure jet stations to help soothe aching muscles.
