Such a relaxing soak!!!

A bit stressed out before hitting the pools. Much less stressed after visiting!!! Plenty of space for everyone.

After exploring various adventures in NZ, we changed pace and spent a morning at Hanmer Springs. The various pools were awesome and super relaxing, even though there were a bunch of kids in the water park area. The changing room / restroom was clean and warm (important when the cold wind blows in). Excellent experience.

Nothing like moving from one hot pool to another when temp is 50 degrees Fahrenheit and mildly raining.

The pools were on our top 5 to do whilst in NZ but when we got there we realised they were just pools that were heated. I'm not sure what I was expecting, I think I was thinking they would possibly be more natural looking but they aren't. We also went on a 28'deg day which was way to hot... More

We had an enjoyable time at the spa. We had a private pool for 30 mins to start and then went on to try various other pools. We loved the jacuzzi. It was fairly quiet as it was midweek.

This was wonderful after a long uphill walk to the local waterfall. Staff was friendly. The place was pretty quite due to the recent earthquake but i imagine it will be quite busy in the future.

Tired aching muscles relieved by a long soak and time in the hydrotherapy pools. Such a special area

This is a fantastic place to be with a great setting. It has a lazy river, slides, spa, etc. Fun for the whole family.

This is a great place to stop and have a relax; that's exactly what we did after several days of long journeys on the South Island. We paid extra to have a private pool however we found this was an unnecessary extra expense as the outdoor pools were far more pleasant and had lovely views of the mountains. Some of... More
