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

Take nothing but yourselves! Private spa rooms with one glass roller door that goes right back into the ceiling leaving the pool open to the sky, and stars - our friends got snow even! Can be served a baby champagne with a delectable ice-cream pottle, and they can add candles around the room for real romance. Can also be shared... More

This place was great. Private onsen pool, with electric rollover window over looking the river. Perfect way to spend a wet and miserable day in Queenstown relaxing after a few days of skiing. I urge you if you're unable to get through to make a booking continue to try, we'll worth the three attempts we made.

Easy to book and cater for what we wanted. Great staff at reception. We booked for an hour and a half as recommended by other reviewers and definitely enjoyed that as the first hour went by very quickly. Only downside was that this was not communicated between reception and the pool staff so our alarm went off after 45mins instead... More

We had not been to the Onsen Hot Pools last time we visited. We are so glad we discovered it through friends this time. This place is the perfect end to any skiing holiday, to ease away the new muscles you have discovered. It is also a relaxing and peaceful option for people just wanting something soothing and luxurious to... More

Booked the pools for a late night session so my partner and I could see the stars. Definitely worth the extra for the Candlelight package and Indulgence (aromatherapy, wine, ice cream). The pools were hot ! But able to cool down with a jet of hot water if needed. They also have spa capability which was lovely. The views were... More

If you visit Queenstown you HAVE to come here, just before dark is when we went so we had the views then the stars came out also. We got the indulgence package with the wine/tubs of ice-cream it was really nice. Highly recommend :)

Your own personal hot pool. In a room with a roof and wall that opens up to reveal the beautiful new zealand mountains. To make it extra romantic go at night and get the candles package. Its worth the extra few dollars. A great activity to do after a hard day of adventuring! Book on the hour and there's a... More

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

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..
