Pool itself is good but needs some modernization in changing rooms. No hot water in the showers. Pool surrounds could do with some shading in the summer months.

From Fernland Spa - Main Hot Pool Entry

Hi Naomi, thanks for your feedback. The showers are hot , so unless the tank had been drained you should have had a hot shower, I apologize for the inconvenience. The staff could have fixed this but possibly were not aware. The surrounding bush and umbulas offer shade for most of the day ,but we have a period in mid summer of about 2 hours with little shade , it is always a juggle to ensure we cater for all guests needs and we will assess the situation. Kind regards Wendy
