The spa itself is rated very well, but there are too many people on weekends, which hinders a peaceful rest. However, the weekend closeness is a problem of many tourist attractions of Israel.
I knew that on Saturday there was a crowd – there were local residents who were busy on business or work on weekdays. So I decided to go as early as possible and at 9 am we were already there. What was my surprise when I could not find in the parking lot in front of the entrance a single free place. As a result, parked a little distance, a 5-minute walk.
The territory of the complex Khamey Gaash is huge and at the same time very well-groomed. Everything is buried in verdure.
After prolonged soaking in the thermal pools – a little more than an hour, 10-15 minutes each (in the hottest 10 was enough for me – everyone should decide for himself how much time he feels) wanted to eat. In the complex Hamey Gaash there is a cafe-restaurant with the memorable name Nostalgia.
Personally, I do not recommend visiting Hamey Gaash exactly on Saturday – there are many people. Let the local people rest on this day – come on weekdays. And more comfortable, and cheaper (as a visit, and transport).
Upon arrival at this place, the first thought was to get here extra – at the entrance there were 2 battalions of grandmothers for treatment. Then, when they went inside, the view changed. On the background of beautiful nature there are pools with thermal water and a swimming pool. It is difficult to drown as the depth of seventy meter. If you wish, you can order a massage which there are several types. My advice is not to go straight and at a discount from the army or from work, if there is such a thing, otherwise the prices bite.
This recreation complex is located between Tel Aviv and Netanya, near Herzliya. It is very convenient to reach it by car – 3-4 minutes from the exit from the highway. Minibuses and buses stop at 12-15 minutes walk. Directions from Tel Aviv 11-12 shekels / person. Netanya is a bit cheaper.
