Soaking in natural hot springs calms your mind and reinvigorates your body, and have been used for thousands of years as a source of relaxation. It’s no surprise spending time in hot water feels good, but what many people may not know is the scientifically backed benefits of regular time in these naturally healing waters.
With the aim to bring this beneficial wellness guests, Minera Hot Springs Binh Chau has harnessed Vietnam’s natural hot springs and created a bath culture inspired by different cultures from around the world, especially Japan. “At Minera, you will discover true relaxation and healing, not only for your body and muscles but also for your mind. It is a retreat to pure happiness, where you can finally find the real connection from within and to your loved ones,” says Ngan Nguyen, marketing manager at Minera Hot Springs Binh Chau. The 13-hectare hot springs resort is just a two-hour car ride from Ho Chi Minh City and offers more than 30 hot mineral bath services that include swimming pools, hot and cold saunas, and spa treatments.
Guests commonly ask, “what minerals do these springs contain and at what levels.” Every hot spring around the world is different. “The hot mineral circuit comes completely from nature and the only one true hot springs in the south of Vietnam, certified by FEMTEC (directly under WHO) and has a temperature up to 82°C at the source,” says Ngan. “In addition to hot mineral water, Minera also has black mineral mud, which can be used safely on the skin. Minera’s hot spring mineral water contains silica, sulfur, carbonate, iron and Maggie, which can help blood circulation and heal the osteoarthritis pain. In addition, Minera Springs helps regulate your heart rate and supports clean breathing.”
Out of the nine hot springs that Minera offers—Springs Casa, Springs Pool, Wabisabi, Around the World Spa, Springs Land, Tropic Land, 82 Degrees, and Springs Retreat—its Japanese inspired onsen, Greek-themed Around The World and Egg boiling in 82 degree are the most popular. Coveted as a natural healer, an onsen is a hot spring bath that contains minerals that promote rest and relaxation. It is believed that the onsens of Japan promote health and wellness through relief from muscle tension, reduction of stress, and absorption of elements that the body needs to fight off illness and disease.
