There’s no better way to get in touch with nature than by taking a refreshing dip in the cold waters of springs.
Fern Valley Resort provides the rejuvenating energy of nature that nature-lovers look for and what’s more, this refreshing experience can be enjoyed with friends or with the family. The main facility of Fern Valley Resort is their giant natural swimming pool that perpetually flows from a river.
The pool was formed by placing concrete embankments on both sides of the river and they even placed a long slab of concrete to create a lower tier which leads to an even deeper pool. There is also a huge extended flat area that is just shallow enough for young kids to enjoy.
Surrounding the swimming pool is a jungle of trees and other fauna which largely contributes to the natural atmosphere and the trees form canopies extending over the pools which provide ample shade to the visitors.
If you want to fully experience the pool without having to avoid the scorching heat of the sun, then it is best to visit during late afternoon. On both sides of the banks, there are native cottages perched on stilts that also provide shade from the sun and are able to accommodate large groups. Upon arrival, visitors may take a moment to relax until the intensity of the sun whittles down until it is bearable.
Moreover, these cottages are scattered all over the resort and all of them are elevated giving the cottages a great view of the pool and the nature around it which would make a great background for photoshoots.
Fern Valley Resort is a great place to spend some time communing with nature with its ambient natural surroundings. For those who prefer not being alone then spending a refreshing vacation with friends and family won’t be a problem with their giant natural pool.
