Natural Thermal Waters
The Thermae Bath Spa is the only Spa in Great Britain that lets its visitors bathe in natural spring waters. These clear waters are believed to have fallen as rain at about 10,000 years ago, and then sank to a depth of 1.2 miles below the earth’s surface.
In this spa haven, the waters meet high temperature rocks before rising back up through a break. Now, there are over 1 million litres of mineral-rich water which flows from the thermal springs each day, at an average temperature of 45°C / 113°F.
Thermae Bath Spa Highlights
The Minerva Bath is one great place you should never miss to visit. It is structured in a series of aromatic steam rooms designed to relax each of your senses. In here, you can choose a 2-hour or 4-hour spa session which includes full access to its warm waters and flowing curves. Also, check out the open-air rooftop pool that offers spectacular views across the skyline of Bath.
There are two thermal pools available inside the baths. Both the indoor and outdoor pools are warmed at approximately 35.5 and cooled from 45C, at which it exits the ground. The pleasantly warm and calming atmosphere of this complex will surely give you a very relaxing visit.
The indoor pool offers a pleasant bubble pool which is quite sensational to those visiting the place. You may also, enjoy a powerful massage jet for your head and shoulders, as well as a lazy river you’ll totally love. The up-lighters installed in the floor of the pool create rhythmic effect to its clear waters.
They project a subtle and dappled light onto the curved ceiling of the pool, and becomes even more atmospheric as the main lights are dimmed in the evening.
One of the spa’s real highlight is its outdoor pool, which is located on the rooftop. It is the perfect place to soak up in the spa’s warm waters. Also, you can enjoy the jacuzzi seats and the massage jet. The best of all – for a totally romantic experience, why don’t you stay there and watch the sun go down over the city.
In addition to the main pools already mentioned, Thermae Bath Spa also features a gorgeous steam room. In here, you will find some herbal scented steam chambers complete with hot stone benches to sit or lie on. Also, take advantage of the interestingly giant hot shower in the centre of the room. This shower is fed by the thermal spring and will definitely soothe your skin.
