Hot springs is the secret in Pamukkale.

They dissolve the calcium carbonate, and deposit it further on, creating a white landscape, where terraces retaining the water compose a marvelous landscape.

I don’t know if nature made it all, or had the help of men hands, but the results are fabulous, and men’s contribution, if it happened is to be saluted.

​And what about another hot spring in your hotel pool?

​The Pools


It is a beautiful sight from distance (smaller than expected), the white mountain with the water running slowly downwards.

It is still pretty when you approach, but don’t be mistaken by the usual photos of people in the water: It’s not a bathing area.

The crowds follow the course of the water, here and there put their feet in a small natural pool, and it’s done.

​Anyway, with all those people it couldn’t be otherwise.

If you didn’t try the natural pools in the hills, you may do it in thermal water in the hotel’s pool, down in the plane. The sulfuric smell and the excessive temperature of the water coming from the spring inside the pool don’t lie. It’s funny the temperature of the spring, but to cool a little we would better use the other end of the pool. However, the hotel is not only the pool. The rooms are quiet and good, spread in a large and arranged garden.
