A player jumping into a spa.
Oo'Glog is the location of the spas.

Spa or Spa facilities are a reward of the As a First Resort... quest. There are 5 pools located in the Ogre city of Oo'glog. Players can bathe in all pools, and possess all effects from the pools at once. However, players cannot enter pools with a pet or familiar following them.

To enter a pool simply click on it. To leave right click on the edge of the pool and select "Climb out over rocks"

The fastest way to get there is to teleport to Mobilising Armies, by either using the level 10 teleport spell, the Spirit Tree, or the Ring of duelling, and then run east, but alternative methods are available. These include using the Ectophial teleport (or Catherby Teleport) followed by chartering a boat from Port Phasmatys (or Catherby) and running from the Feldip Hills Fairy Ring (AKS) to the agility shortcut. Note that the fastest way into the Fairy Rings is a Slayer ring teleport to the Rellekka Slayer Caves. Players with 57 summoning can use the Spirit Larupia Teleport to land the player a short distance north of Oo'glog in the Chinchompa hunting ground.

Spa Colour Examine Message
Bandos pool Red
File:Bandos pool.png
Strange, copper-infused waters. You feel the favour of Bandos wash over you.
The Bandos pool will mark players as followers of Bandos and none of his followers will attack them in God Wars Dungeon. The effect lasts for one hour. See also: God wars dungeon
Sulphur spring Yellow
File:Sulphur spring.png
Smells like rotten eggs. Your soul feels serene after your rest. Your Prayer points have been restored.
The sulphur spring temporarily boosts Prayer by about 10% of a player's level as it restores Prayer points. This was the highest Prayer bonus given by any altar in RuneScape, but was replaced in December 2009 by the Senntisten Altar. Note that this spa will decrease prayer points if used after the Senntisten Altar.
Salt-water spring Light blue
File:Salt-water spring.png
Bubbling water and salt of the earth. You feel energised and hastened after your relaxing soak.
The salt-water spring allows for unlimited run energy by restoring run energy to 100% every second or so for a limited amount of time. Players get an in-game message that the effect has worn off. It will last approximately 10 to 25 minutes, possibly depending on the player's agility level.
This bath is quite useful for any extended run errands such as doing Treasure Trails, Farming runs, Runecrafting, All Fired Up, Penguin/Star hunting as well as several quests. It also allows you to run in the Ice Path, where you normally cannot. For example, a player with a prepared inventory can teleport to Edgeville immediately after exiting pool and run 10-15 abyss trips or more before the effect wears off. It can also be very useful for doing the shot put room in the Warriors' Guild to gain tokens quickly. Interestingly, the effects of the spring are still active after death.You can also get 100% energy and use it on the bike in the Blast Furnace mini game, a good way to get Agility experience as well.
Thermal bath Dark blue
File:Thermal bath.png
Ever been in hot water before? You feel restored and invigorated
The thermal bath cures and gives temporary protection from the effects of poison, disease, hp loss, and boosts players' hitpoints above their maximum, by around 15-20%. This is similar to the Elidinis statuette in Nardah; the effect gradually wears off 1 hp at a time.
Mud bath Black
File:Mud bath.png
Mud, mud, glorious mud. After a bath in such luxuriant mud, you feel your Hunter skills are extra keen.
The mud bath boosts players' Hunter level by 8 levels, making them more likely to catch hunter creatures. This boost will not stack with the boost from drinking a Hunter potion. If a player drinks a Hunter Potion before using the bath, the Hunter level will only be boosted by 5 levels instead of 8. The bath also temporarily removes the players' scent whilst hunting, therefore not needing to remove their scent from traps by using a Lit torch.

Trivia

  • When first released there was a glitch that caused players to appear to be walking on the surface of the "spa" pools, by burning a plant, jumping into a spa pool and waiting until the plant had burnt completely. Now it sometimes happens when you're not burning anything.
    Walking on mud
  • The examine text "Mud, mud glorious mud" is a reference to "The Hippopotamus Song" by the comical duo Flanders and Swann.
  • There is a glitch from the salt-water spring when the effects wear off. When the message "The quickening effects of the salt-water spring has worn off" appears, it is still possible to have your energy restored to 100% up to 5 times before completely wearing out. When the message appears, continue running until your run energy reaches 81%. Stop, and your run energy should be restored back to 100%.
  • There is a glitch where a player drops a pet the very moment the player jumps in. This results in the pet walking on the surface while the player takes a relaxing bath.
