Great Value at The Caledon Spa Thursdays & Sundays only
Entrance fees to the warm mineral pools only available to residents of the Overberg.
The Caledon Resort is home to one of the Western Cape’s famous Mineral Rich Warm Spring. The hot spring originates from the emergence of geothermally heated groundwater that rises from the Earth’s crust.
It produces over a million liters of water daily with an average temperature of 65 degrees Celsius. No chemicals are added and the distinctive brown color of the water is due to the high iron content, known as chalybeate.
When the water reaches the surface rapid oxidation takes place which gives the distinct smell and color of the water. The iron particles are a natural body exfoliation and the oily layers found on the surface of the pools, depending on weather conditions, a natural moisturizer to the skin.
The mineral pools are completely drained and filled every week on a Monday, except the historical Victorian Bath is drained and cleaned every Thursday.
Thermal Springs are well known to boost blood circulation, reduces stress, promote sleep and are a natural pain reliever.
