POOLS AND FACILITIES
The Thermoludic uses strict processes and phytosanitary controls that allow us to keep it free of germs, which means that it is not essential to wear swim caps and flip-flops.
The thermal waters of Caldea, which surface at 70ºC, are special due to their properties, rich in sulphides and minerals, as well as saline and oily like thermal plankton. Its natural use has anti-allergic, healing and decongestant effects on the body.
Inúu, the Adults Only space in Caldea, was constructed in 2013 as an annex to the building that houses Thermoludic and Origins.
This year, Caldea debuted a panoramic lagoon in Thermoludic that is suitable for all audiences. The new lagoon, which protrudes from the outdoor terrace, giving visitors the opportunity to experience a sensation of weightlessness that is just like flying over the river.
