We visited the Caves on a Wednesday and were able to get a room to ourselves (which was nice). I then had a relaxing 85 minute massage and it was a short walk from our hotel.

Wear your bathing suit to go into the underground sauna-like cave. Then come out to have a massage and body wrap that will totally relax you!

To get down to the caves I am not sure if there is an alternate way from the stairs that we had to take. I would contact them directly.

Go with as little as possible. Swimsuit-that's it and use their changing room. Use their robe and white flip flops. Check out the monthly special and get the massage.
