Discovered in 1928 by famous French doctor Albert Sallet, the Alba natural hot springs is considered a precious treasure of Alba Wellness Resort. Analysis taken by French geologist Henri Fontaine in 1957 showed that Alba was a balanced mineral water, containing Calcium, Bicarbonate, Magnesium and other nutritional minerals that are good for health and beauty.

Other scientific evidence by geologists from Czech and Vietnam has also proven that Alba hot springs can be compared with some famous thermal mineral water sources in Europe, such as Vichy. In France, there is the Town of Vichy, a well-being, health and beauty destination built on the famous Vichy hot springs. In Vietnam, Alba Wellness Resort is proud to open on the very birthplace of the unique natural mineral water source named Alba.
