The waters that fill the pools at Doña Jovita Garden Resort come directly from the hot springs of Mt. Makiling. Mineral-rich and naturally heated, hot springs can increase metabolism, accelerate healing, soothe muscles, improve blood circulation, and detoxify the body’s lymphatic system.

Bathing in hot springs gives many of the benefits of exercise with less strain on the heart – it increases the heart rate while lowering blood pressure. Experts also recommend soaking in natural hot springs for two hours before bedtime to help one sleep better. The buoyancy of the water relaxes the muscles and supports and reduces stress on the joints.

Take a relaxing soak or swim laps at any of the natural hot spring pools or take the kids to the Pirate’s Cove Kiddie Pool area for some fun and play!
