Q: Will the water ruin or damage my swimsuit?
A: We can assure you that the water quality of our baths surpasses all standards of excellence with the help of trained and experience artisans, cutting-edge equipment and meticulously applied protocols. Now, let’s face it, swimsuits are not all made the same.
We recommend wearing a swimsuit made from fabric that resists the top swimsuits destroyers; chlorine, salt, sweat, sunscreen and UV rays. Your swimsuit will be exposed to most if not all of these elements during your visit.
Taking a shower with your swimsuit on before using the facilities will help it not absorb as much chlorine as it would if it was dry, and rinsing out your swimsuit under a running faucet immediately after use will also prevent sweat, salt and chlorine from having more time to damage the fabric.
