You’re never too young to need a little rest and relaxation, which is why the JHL Solitaire Hotel in Jakarta, Indonesia, has opened Acquaree, a hydrothermal kids’ spa.

Per Leisure Opportunities, the 8,000 square foot hydrothermal circuit is open to children ages 5-12 and features a water and heat tunnel; rock sauna with climbing walls; rasul-like mud room with organic therapeutic clays and Octopi tentacles blowing warm air to dry the mud; and a rainforest chamber with scented rain showers, rinsing water buckets and shower hoops.

And even tiny tykes can blow off some steam—a separate water playground for toddlers ages 3-5 includes educational hydro experiences like a bubble pool, water guns and a mushroom shower.

Children are guided by coaches certified in first-aid, and temperatures are adjusted to child-level tolerance. Anti-bacterial, ultra-violet technology things hygienic throughout the circut.

There’s even an outdoor playground serving as a “pre” and “post” circuit area, and a check in and check out lounge with refreshments. The locker rooms (one for boys, one for girls) include color-changing LED lights, private changing rooms and showers.

JHL group director and Acquaree owner and operator Mega Dharmadi told the publication: “At Acquaree, we believe that you’re never too young to experience and learn about wellness, through our unique hydrothermal spa journey, enjoying a safe and fun educational experience on the importance of wellness.”
