In a picturesque, tranquil setting overlooking Lake Rotorua, visitors can enjoy a wonderful fusion of relaxing hot spring pool bathing, sumptuous spa and massage therapies and picturesque lake views. Polynesian Spa has the use of two types of hot mineral water, one alkaline and one acidic, that are the unique point of difference of the operation. Many thousands of visitors to the spa have attested to the remedial effect the hot mineral waters have on such ailments as muscular complaints, arthritis and rheumatism. The Priest and Radium springs are most noted in this respect. We invite you to experience this World Top Ten Spa (natural/thermal/medical), as voted by readers of the prestigious Conde Nast Traveller magazine for several years and once again in 2011. We look forward to welcoming you to Polynesian Spa. « less

I have lived in Rotorua for almost 30 years and I recommend to all our overseas visitors that they take the time to have a swim, a private pool or a spa at Polynesian Spa. The family pools are great even during the day if you want to soak your weary bones (after some adventure or a game of golf)... More

Great tourist thing to do in Rotorua. Pretty busy this over the long weekend so missed out on the opportunity to book a spa treatment or private pool. Visited this place a few years ago and the spa treatment and lake spa was well worth the extra money.

We were recommended this by the concierge and so we hired standard a private room for 28 dollars for 2 for 30mins and 10 dollar charge for 2 towels and returnable deposit of 10 dollars. It was fab, our very own little pool. It was warm and smelly (sulphur) water open to night sky and we certainly slept like a... More

I was given a voucher for a massage and spa and would highly recommend it to everyone. The service provided by the staff was welcoming and very helpful and it was such a relaxing place to be pampered and to sit in the private hot pools and totally unwind. It was all over too quickly!

Adding to everyone else s positive reviews I recommend this centrally located Polynesian Spa to everybody. There are numerous alkaline and acid pools which are very beneficial to your skin and muscles. Definitely to be experienced when you visit Rotorua

I should start out by saying I have been to similar places elsewhere in the world (e.g. The blue lagoon in Iceland) and this did not compare - if you have not been elsewhere it could come across better, but to me there was not much special. The main tip I would give is get a deluxe private pool -... More

We have been to the Polynesian Spa many times over recent years when we are in Rotorua. On our recent visit we were on a school camp with 28 students. It was another very pleasant visit. The staff are always friendly and the pools give you a very relaxing soak. We will definitely be back again.
