Gadek Hot Spring or known in Malay as ‘Air Panas Gadek’ is one out of three hot spring spots in Melaka. The hot spring has a surface temperature of 56 °C with an average water flow of 5.4 litres per minute, worries not - the pools are safe for children and suitable for family outing!
What to Expect?
The unique thing about Gadek Hot Spring’s pools is that the water contains hydrogen sulfide gas. Don’t worry as the water has been tested by officials and deemed to be at safe levels for human skin. It is widely believed that this gas is what contributes to the healing properties that the spring water is reported to have by the visitors who frequent it for that sole purpose. Furthermore, it has been said that having a dip in the pool helps cure skin diseases, muscle fatigue, increases metabolism rates and that other minerals found in the water helps rejuvenate the body.
The hot spring is equipped with restaurant, food stalls, children's playground, outdoor swimming pool and bathrooms.
Gadek Hot Spring is open until 9pm. It can accommodate about 500 guests at a time and it is frequently visited at night.
The Gadek’s hot spring was discovered by English soldiers during the British rule in Malaysia. It was not known by locals, but rumors has it that there’s a place where the British soldiers used to treat disease. The villagers was also curios especially when many British officers and soldiers lived near the pond. It was a well kept secret as only after the British left, the villagers found out about it.

It was refreshing EXCEPT tht the toilet was so smelly and uncomfortable despite having to pay for the hotspring and its facilities. And there's some smell tht comes from the water, tht is certainly not refreshing. I hope the person in charge for the hotspring can take some action and better the place.
