Housed in cedar-lined bathing rooms, complete with shower, changing area, breathtaking mountain views, and unique picture-windows that retract into the roof at the touch of a button. At night dim the lights and watch the southern constellations wheel past overhead! « less

The Onsen hot pools are amazing, especially after a day in the Queenstown cold. My husband booked this as a special surprise, 40 years to the day since our first date together!! The staff were so friendly and helpful, especially Caroline. The luxury package is fabulous, champagne, ice cream and lovely fluffy towels. We were there in the evening, so... More

We booked in on our last night in NZ, and the last spot for that night, starting at 9.30 (only spot left!!! so book early) You need to arrive 15 minutes early and also allow travelling time from Queenstown, allow 15-20 minutes, as it is out of the way, thankfully we had a sat nav, otherwise we would definitely got...

Went there after a hiking day, perfect way to relax. Was just a bit too hot for my liking after a while but you can ask for your preferred temperature when you book and also have the option of adding some cold water which was really pleasant. Beautiful views on the mountains and the Shotover River. And was snowing, magical..

We pre booked a night session on last night of our trip to soak away the soreness from the mountain. We were picked up in Queenstown at 'the station' by complimentary shuttle and taken out to pools and then returned afterwards. Our driver was very friendly and informative. The night was clear and the sky filled with stars which was... More

Onsen Hot Pools is just a perfect way to unwind after a day of skiing - Highly recommended. My wife and I truly enjoyed our experience. Overlooking the Shotover river, Onsen Hotpools is situated just about 10 mins drive from downtown Queenstown. They offer pick-up and drop-off services from 'The Station' which is an added bonus if you haven't got... More

Great views. Lovely setting and amenities. Amazing for our anniversary night out. We loved it, especially with the candlelight package at sunset. However, I woke up sick the next morning. Not sure if this is because of the cold winter air mixed with hot water or if spas are full of germs but I am not the only one I... More

Booked a 9:30pm time slot around three weeks before arriving. I've seen some reviews already about customer service and I will vouch now, the service was excellent for us. From the time of booking, I received very clear details about my booking and how to get to the location. So of people just read instructions clearly, they won't have an... More

After two days of learning to snowboard, our bodies started cramping up and struggling. We thought we were doomed for the rest of the trip until someone mentioned the Onsen Hot Pools. Wowza! Thank you!! An hour of lounging and relaxing in the hot pool while looking out over the river and mountains. Yep, that is serenity at it's finest.... More

Yes, this is a splurge, but of the 4 nights we spent in Queenstown we spent 2 of them here and were so glad we did. The first night was clear and the view with the stars was just amazing. When you get into your tub room it is closed off and there is something really fun about hitting the... More
