As far as you water temperature, we mean it when we say “hot tub.” Count on temperatures of at least 109°C/228°F, which may cool down to 50°C/122°F with wave action, but the geothermal flow is consistent.
Sitting near or under the waterfall is a magically wild way to moderate the temperature and enjoy the view.
