Hamat Gader, located on the south-eastern part of the Sea of Galillee, spreads over 40 acres of tropical parkland. The hot springs of Gadera, dating back to the Roman Empire, was frequented by famous rabbis and prominent Greek philosophers.
This beautiful Eden has a number of different attractions, creating a unique experience with each visit. The main attraction at Hamat Gader is probably the central bath complex. The thermo-mineral water is rich with sulphur and always pleasant at 42 degrees Celsius. Some say that bathing in the hot springs at Hamat Gader can accelerate your metabolism and relieve joint pain, not to mention the feeling of absolute relaxation when you float on your back and see the mountains and palm trees surrounding.
In addition to the springs, you can also enjoy a complete spa experience, offering a full range of water treatments and massages.
While enjoying a full day of relaxation and spoils, Hamat Gader hasn’t forgotten that you need to eat. A number of different meal options are available but my personal favorite is the Siam restaurant offering exotic Asian cuisine while overlooking the central bath complex.
Hamat Gader’s relaxing spas and sulphur pools offer a wonderfully relaxing escape for couples but is also completely family friendly. If you’re an animal lover, you should be sure to visit one of the largest Crocodile farms in the Middle East. Feeding time is always a big hit with the kids, though I always enjoyed watching the baby crocs.
Regardless if you’re looking for a relaxing weekend with your significant other or a fun day for the whole family, Hamat Gader is always a hit. If you find yourself in the north, consider finding yourself here.
