The views were amazing and the experience was exactly as one might envision upon reviewing the pictures. We loved it, and would definitely recommend to others. It was a very romantic experience.

Unique experience! You are literally in the middle of the desert with your private hot spring. Bring an umbrella for the sun since sunscreen is not allowed.

We found this hot spring experience to be very healing, restorative and mindful. It was very special to be able to enjoy peace and beauty in this unspoilt natural place. Paul is very attentive to the environment and his passion and diligence shines through. When planning your visit, we would recommend you consider the outside temperature and UV rating if you are sensitive to the sun and heat.

Excellent! Second time I have visited the hot spring. Paul is always friendly and welcoming. First time I went with my husband and this time I took my friends. Water was not too hot and we didn't get sunburned :) I most likely will return for a third experience.

Paul is a nice host and the setting is well isolated. Definitely go for the umbrellas when offered and you’ll have a good time. Our 2 hours was more than enough. Would recommend.
