Why Banjar Hot Spring is special ?
Banjar Hot Water is a nature hot wellspring from the ground and it is believed can heal the disease. Its water is accommodated at one small swimming pool encircled by unique rural nature, its situation close to the Wihara (Buda Temple). Banjar Hot Water is located in Banjar Countryside, Banjar sub district and Singaraja Regency. It is about 1,5 Km from Banjar or 24 Km from Singaraja Town. To reach the Hot Water location in Banjar, we can use the motor vehicle through the main road with good condition and passing the Balinese Village with unique culture life.
What to explore at Banjar Hot Spring?
The hot spring water gushes from the mouths of eight stone carved naga (mythical, dragon-like creatures) into the oblong shaped upper pool.
From the upper pool the water overflows from the mouths of five more nagas into the largest of the three pools, which is square shaped and situated at a lower level.
Adjacent to these pools is the third and smallest one from which the water poors down via three 4 meter high spouts, giving you a strong, reviving massage.
There is a small temple at the spot where the water wells up from the ground, encased by a low, stone structure.
There is a cozy restaurant on the grounds of the hot springs where you can have a good lunch against low prices.
At the right side under the elevated restaurant are a few changing cabins, cramped and rather smelly, and an outdoor shower can be found adjacent to the largest pool.
How to get to Banjar Hot Spring?
The hot springs can easily be reached from Lovina Beach by bemo or by public bus to the junction of the main road (Jalan Seririt-Singaraja) with the road that leads to Banjar village. From there you can take an ojek (motorbike taxi) or a dokar (horse cart), or make a steep climb on foot. From the village of Banjar it is a one km walk or drive uphill (follow the signpost shortly after the village market) to the carpark of the hot springs. Buy your ticket (Rp. 3,000) from the small office and run the gauntlet for a few hundred meters along the hawkers stalls to the entrance of the baths.
