Owner description: 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!

Our children booked us an hour in the tub while they went jet boating. The staff were very friendly, and the view from the tub was spectacular - it was "open" and overlooked the Shotover river. The wife was not too happy with the slightly slimey inside of the tub; guess I am a bit more tolerant!

We went to the hot pools after a long and packed full day in Queenstown. We were treated to a stunning sunset and little bottle of bubbly (note: they do not have a liquor licence so can not sell alcohol individually and so only way is to get the indulgence pack- $19 where you get 200ml bubbly, two ice cream,...

My husband and I booked this as a treat on our honeymoon around the South Island. The staff were extremely helpful when booking from the UK and even suggested what time to book to ensure we had a sunset. And what a sunset it was! The colours were amazing. A perfect way to warm up in the chilly weather, and... More

We love hot tubs so happily booked here for a 2 hour session from 8pm. This covered the sunset period. The free pick up in town was on time and it was a short drive to the site. After checking in we waited in the lounge area for our pool to be ready. We took our own towels although you... More

I surprised my husband with the indulgence and candlelight package on Boxing Day - it was absolutely beautiful! Wanted to do it again later in our trip but didn't have time :(

The service feels like you are in jail now! They are unfriendly and downright belligerent. Sorry we went there. I had to pay for two rooms because we were 5. The fifth was my 8 year old. We were told the spa was too small for me and my four daughters ages 19-8. The truth is we could have fit... More

My mom and my sisters and I went to the hot springs expecting a natural hole in the ground. Later we were told that we could only get that on the Northern Island. Even when we got there we were 5 people 4 of us are full grown but my younger sister is only 8 years old. They made us... More

After the chos of Xmas we had decided that a little relaxation was needed. The courtesy transport to the Hot pools was on time and on arrival we were shown to our hot pool where we would relax for the next 60 minutes. The rooms are equipped with a shower and the first thing I wanted to do was open... More

The view from the hot tub was pretty, and as my partner wasn't feeling 100% it was something nice and quiet to do with our day. Nice idea with the retractable roof to the outdoors. Unlike a few of the other comments on this page, we had no trouble at all with the courtesy transport, and the ladies were very... More
