Ten Thousand Waves was an amazing experience. My husband and I booked a package that included a private soaking tub, couples massage and lunch. The entire experience from check in to checkout was delightful. We hope to return in the near future.

I"m a local and have been visiting here for over 10 years. Each time, prices rise without any significant changes/updates to the pools and service. I think the restaurant made some good changes, but overall this place has out priced many locals.More
