Immerse yourself in the views, the pure waters, and the fresh mountain air, as your mind and body surrenders to the deep penetrating warmth and gentle massage of our private pools. 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!

A visit to the hot pools should be a priority when in queenstown, especially in winter. We had the perfect weather so had our door open and could just stare at the surrounding beauty while being deliciously hot in our private pool. You also get to watch the shotover jet boat in the river below but cannot hear it as... More

This is how we spent the last night of our honeymoon. It was the most perfect end that we could imagine. We had chosen a package where the room was set up with candles and we opened the roof to watch the stars. The temperature was just perfect, hot so that you relaxed, but not too hot, and the cool...

This was the best recommendation every made to us. We booked the spa for one hour on night. Not only could you see the stars upon opening up the roof, but it was snowing as well the night we went. Couldn't be any better or romantic for a couple. Would definitely go back. Thank you!

It has been FREEZING this week in Queenstown, so much so that my husband and I ran from hotel to pub to restaurant and then repeated as we were too cold to be outside! The highlight came in the hot pools visit which hubby booked for us (I would suggest booking). I expected some sort of mud-wading ethnic experience but... More

The hotpools are located approximately 15 minutes from Queenstown centre, not far from the Shotover Jets. It is particularly popular in the afternoons with skiers. It was a lovely experience and very relaxing. We were in hot pool 1. An hour was sufficient time for us to relax in the hot pool and enjoy the view. We brought along our... More

Great way to end a long, hard day on the snow. With retractable roof allowing to watch the sunset in comfort of the hot pool was sublime!

Got very nice view upon there. It is expensive if you compare to other hot pools. But you got: 1. A totally private room with great view, even snow falling in front of your window (in winter) 2. Very nice spa facilities. And you can buy champagne from the reception.

My husband and I went for the night time onsen. We didn't order the candlelight package but they had the room all lit up with candles anyway which was a lovely surprise. It started snowing while we were there too which was magical. We ordered the pamper package which was nice but for the price I would probably just take... More

After the snow and rain dampened my original plans, I decided to check this place out. The overall experience was easy and great! They picked me up (with others) at a central location in Queenstown and drove about 10-15 mins to our destination. Once there, the staff were lovely and told me everything I needed to know before leaving me... More
