One of the most beautiful and popular health retreats in the Roman Empire was the spa at Hamat Gader on the southern ascent to the Golan Heights.

Today you can see the remains of the incredible Roman Baths and an ancient amphitheatre.

The popular modern hot springs and mineral baths fed by underwater springs are over 40 degrees celcius. There are no separate bathing facilities, however in the winter until Shabbat HaGadol, there is “men only” night on Thursday nights until 2am.

There is a lot to see and do even if you don’t use the Hot Springs or fresh water pool,

We watched the family-friendly parrot show, then took a stroll through the alligator park and petting zoo. There are lovely grounds for a picnic near the ancient Roman ruins.

It’s only 20 minutes from our Zimmers at Villa Rimona in Yavne’el.  Call or email to find out more and begin planning your vacation with us at Villa Rimona.
