Balcony Jacuzzis

The Jacuzzis are controlled by a master timer switch which will not allow the pump or heater to operate between 10pm and 9am. This is so that other guests who are sleeping below these apartments are not disturbed by noise.

The master switch is in the cupboard where the hot water system is, either in the kitchen, laundry or near the front door of your apartment. You can turn the Jacuzzi off at any time by pressing the RED button. It can be turned on each morning after 9am by pressing the GREEN button. If you are going out early on a tour and would like your Jacuzzi turned on during the day, please ask at Reception.

The Jacuzzi should not be filled above the ridge approx. 15cm from the top. The Spa Control Pad is located on top of the Jacuzzi. Start the Auto pump indicator and set temperature at 36.5 degrees. For health & safety reasons DO NOT EXCEED 37 degrees as this will burn off the chlorine and bacteria may result.

Hold finger down to change temperature and press “Air” button to start bubbles. Heating will not operate whilst air is operational. Heating time is from 4 to 5 hours.


For Health requirements keep your head above the water at all times.
