I went there on wednesday afternoon and it was empty. The pool is nice with water that I thought it supposed to be 42 degrees celcius or more. Nice to visit after tiring day exploring Flores. Soothing and Relaxing. Bathroom to change were not good, however. Not instagrammable, though. Closed at 7 PM.

We visited the hot spring around 5PM on Sunday. The crowds already subside when we arrived, which is nice. They have few hot spring source, a big 'pool' with hotter water that goes to a little creek. Or you can choose the 'downstairs' river with warmer temp. It was nice relaxing bath for us (family of 4, 2 children age... More

We went there the day after the hike to Wae Rebo village so it was a great therapy! Water is super hot and you can enjoy the different areas for relaxing!

This place is certainly made to soothe away your aches and pains. You have a choice of the types of water you want to soak in. You will, however, have to contend with people spitting into the pools, washing themselves...

Closes entry at 5pm so we reach there about 430pm. Fee is 14k for foreigners. Do prepare small change. Nice place with both hot and cold area for soaking. At certain points, there is even strong water gashing out like a jacuzzi and a natural slide for the kids. Nice place for a soak but its popular with the locals... More

Was really looking forward to relaxing here after a long day in the car. Water was perfect but it's so popular with the locals that it was packed with loud kids. I'd suggest an easier in the day visit to hopefully avoid the crowds

After arrived at Bajawa airport, we went directly to this place. It is around 5 minutes only by car. There is a hot spring natural pool that we can swim in and a river cross this place. The place is not well maintained, dirty and I didn't enjoy my visit at all.

Definitely worth a visit. The water was very hot. I am not sure I would make a special trip there,mouth worth a stop off if you hire a driver.

Quite a way from Bajawa but worth the trip. The pools are supposed to be at 38c, but I would say they were hotter than that. Best fun to be had in the stream below the pools, try not to get swept away.
