Long Description:
From the Banjar Hot Springs website:

Banjar Hot Springs, locally referred to as ‘Air Panas Banjar’, are located approximately 5km southwest from the famous Lovina coast in North Bali.

The hot water springs share the same district as the Brahmavihara Arama Buddhist monastery which is located only 1.5km to the east.

The centuries-old hot springs have been upgraded with modern facilities over time, and have become a favourite retreat and recreational site among locals and international visitors.

From the Seririt-Singaraja main route, a series of village routes up the hills of the Banjar district lead to an intersection with clear signposts to the hot springs. At the spring’s site entrance, a ticket office is adjacent to a parking space. Cars and coaches stop here, while motorcycles are permitted further access along the row of shops to a smaller parking space next to a roofed stone gate with a signage that reads, “Permandian Air Panas” – ‘hot water bathing place’. The souvenir shops that line the route before the stone gate sell various items, from framed art, handicrafts, souvenirs, Bintang shirts to batiks and dyed cloths.

The short pathway and bridge after the gate is by a small river, leading you to a further flight of steps. From here, the first smaller pools can easily be seen, where spouts gush onto visitors enjoying the soothing splashes. Further up the steps is a shop selling snacks and refreshments. The hot water springs complex comprises four main pool sections, with the largest and central bathing pool featuring a restaurant perched high above the northern side. Beside the restaurant are restrooms, lockers and changing rooms, and a spa and massage facility.

The hot water springs provide a recreational and therapeutic experience, due to the water’s sulphuric content. This can be seen from the yellowish red sedimentation at several points of the spouts and pool walls.

The complex is known to have been further developed during the Japanese occupation of Indonesia during World War II. At the time, the waters of the hot springs were known to have cured various skin problems as well as rheumatic ailments.
