Banjar Hot Spring in Lovina North Bali

The Banjar hot springs are in the hills above Lovina beach. This natural hot spring is located in the north of Bali. This Hot Spring believed can heal the disease. Its water is accommodated at one small swimming pool encircled by unique rural nature, its situation close to the Wihara (Buda Temple). Banjar Hot Water is located in Banjar Countryside, Banjar sub district and Singaraja Regency. It is about 1,5 Km from Banjar or 24 Km from Singaraja Town.

To reach the Hot Water location in Banjar, we can use the motor vehicle through the main road with good condition and passing the Balinese Village with unique culture life. The nearest accommodations like hotels or lodging including restaurants are also available in particular at Lovina Beach area. There are many public transportation also available to connect the travel to Singaraja town.

The springs are separated into 3 areas; the top area is the hottest and the next two areas progressively cooler. The last has water falling from about 20 feet and it can give you a great massage. The water is green and has a slight slimy feel. The kids enjoyed visiting and having a swim followed by an ice cream at the restaurant.

You will need to take towels as they are not available and it costs 5000 Rp for a family to get in. If you decide to stay for lunch there is an excellent restaurant (Komala Tirta) at the hotel on the left just before the entrance to the springs.

This hot wellspring source is predictably built since of hundreds of year ago and since the Japanese colonize the Indonesia, this place has developed into three pools to relocate the water for taking a bath. The Japanese had also developed its military officer resort close to this area. Having bathing in the heat water containing the brimstone, it will be able to heal the skin disease.

This public bath which is built by Japanese now is exploited by public society. Beside of that, now this place is opened for tourist who can use this bathing place to swim in hot pool and also enjoy the water fall. Enjoying the hot water fall, we can feel like squeezing, especially at pool equipped by the douche with the high about 3,5 meters, so that can make the body refresh and relaxation.

The pools are distinctive with eight carved stone dragons pouring water into the first pool (the hottest pool), five more for the second pool (cooler then the first pool) and one final 3 meter-high dragon serving the third pool. Traditional belief holds that this hot spring can cure illness.

When visiting, try this hot spring in the morning or at the night time instead of midday time. Use the changing rooms and locker under the restaurant. You must wear a swimsuit and soaps are not permitted in the pool. There is an adjacent outdoor shower provided.

There are three baths were you can puddle in 38ยบC sulfur water. The first bath is filled with dragon statues spewing water, which then overflows in the second bath located lower. The first bath is shallow and seems to be slightly warmer than the others.

Along the walls there is a small ridge where you can sit in the water.

Be careful when climbing down the stairs though. The water is not that clear and the steps are not really visible. When I was dozing off in the hot water I was awaken by a huge splash. Somebody had slipped down the stairs and stumbled into the pool with less grace…

Just like the other pools, the third pool offers a great place to soak in the warm water too. Here the water pours from 3 m high giving you a great back massage.

You are not allowed to jump in the bath nude and you canโ€™t bring your bar of soap with you to the springs. This is not that surprising considering it would be a horrific sightseeing dozens of people scrubbing their armpits.
