Masks are required for all guests. Physical distancing from staff and guests not in your reservation group will be enforced.

Hand washing sinks will be available to all guests in restrooms and outdoors. Commonly touched surfaces will be disinfected by staff on an hourly or less basis. This includes all door handles, locks, light switches, handrails and bathrooms.
Our natural hot springs water is disinfected by UV lights on our main water line and UV lights in each individual mineral bath. This UV light system runs continuously on the main water source and at each individual mineral bath. Mineral baths are also completely drained and disinfected between bathing sessions. We have increased the time between mineral bath sessions to allow a rigorous disinfection process of the mineral bath and mineral bath area between sessions. Mineral baths sessions will be staggered to allow for this enhanced cleaning and disinfecting time.
