Thermal Pools

Let our Thermal Experiences impart you with a sense of peacefulness and serenity

A key element of our Niagara Falls Spa are our three signature Thermal Pools.  Located in our outdoor relaxation area, the pools provide the only temperature controlled hydrotherapy journey in Niagara Falls.  Guests are encouraged to follow the heating/cooling cycle to reap the benefits which include soothing and melting away stress, flushing toxins, boosting immunity and easing chronic pain.

The Thermal Pools at Burning Springs are available for use year-round, wrapped by a heated pool deck surround for comfort.  Guests can access the pools either as an add-on to a service & treatment appointment or by purchasing a day use pass.
