The paved road towards Hotel y Termas de Huife goes across very green fields and hills. It is the start of a day of rest visitors will never forget and the journey takes only a few minutes from Pucón.
Once inside, we went up to the terrace to catch a glimpse of the entire area. Our first immersion was in one of the outdoor pools, whose bottom is made of dark rocks and the temperature of the water is quite pleasant. Afterwards, we took a few minutes’ rest on the ample deck chairs and let our eyes wander around the Liucura River, flowing a few meters away, and the woods on the other side. The river is part of the hot spring circuit, as its cold waters provide guests the chance to alter between them and the warm thermal waters and thus enjoy the benefits this process has for blood circulation.
Then we moved onto the hydrotherapeutic pool. We enjoyed the intense massage of the water coming out of the jets among bubbles and streams. A warm torrent from one of the cascades fell on our neck and shoulders at the same time we felt our stress was relieved. We lost track of time. One area of the pool offers an inner stream. Guests may walk either upstream or downstream to massage and tone up legs and feet. We relished a true relaxing atmosphere our body and spirit did not take long to become aware of.
Large sofas and armchairs
The native trees have been kept in the entire venue. Cinnamon trees and myrtle trees surround the pools and offer their green freshness and unmistakable perfume.
All in all, Huife spring resort has given priority to the proper use of the different temperatures in the pools and appropriate rest. Therefore, the staff is ready to recommend how long visitors should stay at each space. At the spa, massage sessions as well as mud and seaweed therapy succeed in relieving stress in combination with the baths, relax zones and hiking tours along forest trails.
A coquettish set of cabins offers accommodation inside the venue. Likewise, guests may have lunch and dinner at its cozy restaurant.
We went back to town following the same road we had taken across intensely green meadows. We added quietness, panoramic views and persisting silence in this natural hot spring area in Araucanía. All this contributed to the perfect harmony of a day in which we made the most of nature and relax as a result of the invigorating thermal waters of Huife.
