Experience the Sand Bath

Ibusuki is renowned for its rare sand bath, a unique onsen experience. In this natural hot spring, warmed sand is applied to the body, providing a relaxing sensation similar to a sauna.
Its effects are three to four times greater than regular hot springs.
Not only offering detoxification but also promoting blood circulation and enhancing skin beauty. While we don't have an on-site sand bath facility, we provide a complimentary shuttle bus to Sand Bath for your convenience.

Tips to Enjoying the Baths

Step 1

You can purchase hot spring tickets and rent towels at the reception counter. Please note that taking indoor towels outside is prohibited.

Step 2

Take the hotel shuttle to the Sand bath. The bus operates from 3:30 PM to 6:00 PM.

Step 3

Once at the baths, give your ticket to the reception and change into the designated yukata robes. It’s best to be naked underneath so that your undergarments don’t get sweaty and sandy.

Step 4

Walk down to the baths. Choose a trench to lay in, and an attendant will slowly scoop the warm sand on top of you. The baths are similar to being in a sauna, and the toxins built up in your body will slowly be released.

Step 5

After finishing the sand bath, please return to the changing room and enjoy a shower and hot spring. Return your bathrobe to the designated box and change into your regular clothes.

Step 6

Take one of our shuttle buses back to the hotel. Make sure you don’t miss the last one of the day!
