Fun experience, my skin was so soft afterwards and I felt really relaxed

Staff is kind and helpful, there's even a guy that takes your photos with your own mobile. The mud baths are such a different experience and the spa pools afterwards give the final touch. No kidding it really gets you soft and smooth skin. I really enjoyed this, go for it you too!
