Important Information

  • The mud bath has a time-limit of 20 minutes once a day for health and safety reasons. The minimum age for the mud baths is 2.5 years of age, whereas for the sulphur spa is 6 months of age. The chemical makeup of our muds and waters will tarnish most jewellery, particularly silver. We recommend removing it and waiting 24 – 48 hours to put it back on. Your swimwear and towels will have a sulphur smell to them after your experience and will need to be cleaned thoroughly. We recommend using old swimwear, or if you have any concerns to hire or buy from Hell’s Gate, subject to availability. All complimentary services are subject to availability.
