Looking at booking a one night stay for the hotel. Understand that a day pass for the spa is not including. How much is a day pass as cannot seem to find it anywhere? Not wanting a new treatment just access to the pools. Also - does the hotel spa have a sauna/steam room? Thanks in advance.

    There are guest open hours from 8-10pm and 7-9am. Also, one spa treatment allows you access for the whole day.
