There’s nothing like a little dirty fun, and we got a taste of that at the MOBE Platinum Mastermind in Fiji when we visited the Sabeto Hot Springs and Mud Pool. This is one of those must-try things if you’re ever in Fiji.
The spring and mud pool doesn’t look like much. It’s very much like a hole in ground. You splash the mud on yourself and let it dry before going into the mud pool. The guide stays with you the entire time, and even takes pictures for you because mud and digital cameras don’t play well together.
After the dip in the mud pool, it’s time to wash off in the warm spring, which is run-off water from the hot spring. You can try going into the hot spring if you want to risk getting 3rd degree burns. The water is a super hot 75C (167F). I tried to dip my foot in there and pull out once my toe hit the water. I had no interest in cooking myself!
The mud is said to remove toxins and exfoliating the skin. I’m not sure if it actually does that, but after washing off the mud, I found that my skin felt nice and smooth. To complete my muddy experience, I took advantage of the optional massage.
The spring and mud pool was a great event to network and have fun with the other mastermind attendees. After a day of intense masterminding, it was great to kick back, and relax in a nice pool of mud!
