For children, there are shallow swimming pools which are less than one meter deep. These pools are made for children to have fun and for parents to feel safe. Moreover, an excellent lifeguard team takes care of all swimmers, both children and adults.
In this resort, there is a wing specially equipped for people with disabilities, and it has a ramp in the entrance and stairs with metallic handrails which lead guests into the pool in a natural way.

The hot springs are not only for the elderly, but also a pleasure suitable for all ages. Extra treatments, spa and therapeutical massage have placed our country at the top of the list as regards hot spring tourism.
