Bath Fountain: A Natural Healing Oasis In Jamaica

If you are looking for a relaxing and rejuvenating experience in Jamaica, you might want to visit the Bath Fountain Hotel & Spa, located in the green hills of St. Thomas parish.

This hotel is the best place to enjoy the healing waters of the Bath Mineral Springs, which have been sought after since their discovery in 1747 by a runaway slave.

The Bath Fountain is a natural wonder that consists of two springs, one cold and one hot, that flow through the rocks on bamboo pipes.

The hot spring has a temperature of about 45°C (113°F) and contains minerals such as sulphur, lime, and magnesium.

The cold spring has a temperature of about 25°C (77°F) and contains iron, copper, and calcium.

The combination of these minerals is believed to have therapeutic effects on various ailments, such as gout, rheumatism, skin conditions, arthritis, and nerve problems. 

The hotel offers indoor baths that are fed by the mineral springs, as well as outdoor pools and jacuzzis, where you can soak in the warm water while enjoying the scenic views of the surrounding mountains and forests.

You can also get a massage from one of the local therapists who use natural products such as mud, herbs, and oils to enhance your relaxation and healing.

The Bath Fountain Hotel & Spa is not only a place to pamper yourself but also a place to learn about the history and culture of Jamaica.

The British built the Bath Fountain Hotel as a hospital because of the mineralized hot water that poured from the mountains.

Clinically speaking, the hotel waters are claimed to be the most radioactive and healthful in the world, second only to Lourdes, France.

You can also explore the nearby attractions, such as the Reach Falls, a stunning waterfall that cascades into a clear pool, or the Morant Bay Courthouse, a historic site where the 1865 Morant Bay Rebellion took place.
