We went for a family weekend, the hydro was nice, quiet and private from the outside swimming pools, you can go for the massage therapy, or relax in the large pools there is a facility for disabled persons to enjoy the pools.

The high-quality mineral springs of BELA BELA [old name WARMBATHS/ WARMBAD], situated just one hour’s drive north of Pretoria (Tshwane) or 1,5 hours north of Johannesburg, must rank as one of South Africa’s best-kept secrets. The pools of the Hydro are large, sparkling clean and...More

Started our weekend in BelaBela with couples massage. Although we booked for Healing Water Journey that could not be done due to hot water issue, team offered alternative and we left well-rested and pampered. Good value for money with professional therapists.

Enjoyed our visit to hydro. The rheumatism pool is quite soothing for the muscles. The resort activities are well managed and so are the pools. However there is a separate fee to enter the hydro, which is not openly advertised.

Very lovely. Clean and neat. Floors were just extremely slippery which is a huge hazard especially for kids and elderly. It took a concerted effort to walk around the pool without slipping. Even with pool sandals on very slippery. Apart from that very pleasant experience....More

I love both the rheumatoid pool and the warm pool at the hydro. As the heated pool is both indoor and outdoor it caters for everyone. It wasn't very busy and there were plenty of loungers in the shade, I imagine it could be a...More

Beautiful clean pools, relaxing atmosphere. No credit/debit card machine inside at the kiosk. We were however able to pay via card at the entrance.
