Natural hot spring water source

Natural waters that emerge from the bowels of the earth Possessing therapeutic properties for comfort and indulgence.

Our hot spring is situated at the natural groundwater discharging spots. Without exposing in the air, changes in the water texture and component are minimized so the hot water is 100% pure at all times. Natural hot spring is extremely difficult as all factors like geographical considerations, water texture, and water temperatures have to be perfect.
