In the middle of August we were alone for almost 3 hours... a luxury! The buffet lunch is a bit disappointing on the other hand, not bad but very little choice ...

These hot springs were great. I'd say compared to others it's definitely geared more toward an adult crowd. The springs were quite and peaceful, the atmosphere was great. Definitely recommend if you're looking for a place to relax with plenty of privacy.
Lovely locale and great views of the volcano. Quiet, clean grounds and nicely appointed rooms - we had one of the rooms with a private second floor terrace. The staff were excellent and attentive. After walking over to Baldi we were glad to have chosen Paradise instead. Keep up the great work!!
