Thoroughly enjoyed our visit. All day pass so could come and go throughout the day. Beautiful setting. Relaxing in the public pools late afternoon then back in the evening for a private spa. Great.

we stayed here for 2 nights on a large motorhome park. Excellent clean kitchen and bathroom facilities and pool access was discounted thankfully. Check in was friendly and efficient.

My husband and I visited whilst in Taupo. Luckily we had a two for one voucher. Price $22 for an adult oh so overpriced. We went into private pool same price as for main pools, which were over run by children. Not a relaxing visit or soak. Not a suitable place for children unless they use children's area - stay...

Great place to soak away the aches and pains. We went earlier in the day and most of the pools were available so we chose one that was 38Deg.

My husband and I just had the pleasure of staying here. What an awesome Resort. We have never met such delightful, friendly, helpful staff. The on-site cafe is such a plus with well priced, awesome food. The facilities are clean, tidy and sufficient. Our camp site was nice and roomy enough for our caravan and vehicle. However, when it rained... More

tall gates hiding the pleasure below a long walk down the hill surrounded in native fauna, with glimpses of pools below. Friendly staff and then time to settle in pools of differing temperatures that ease the stiffness out of tight and sore muscles. go into either the public pools or spend some time in a private pool. Great place, great... More

Sure if you have some aches and pains it hold some value, or if you are riding the pretty average water slide...maybe? In my opinion this place is certainly not worth a $22 admission fee. But my main beef with this place is the kids charge. 3-12 years old I think was the range at $11. My son is a... More

I always like returning to debretts for a relaxing soak, but a recent trip to another newer baths has got me thinking...why don't they provide showers to clean before getting into the baths like Japanese spas? Especially the private pools, there's a shower, but they say no soap. So in the private pools you are getting in there with other... More
