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!

Woah! For my first time in Queenstown I was looking for jaw dropping views and a relaxing break from our road trip. The hot pools we're exactly that. The staff at Onsen were also extremely helpful and made the experience that much better. Only complaint? The website asks you to book two days in advance. We called up an hour... More

Was a perfect end to a big day involving ice bars, bungy jumping and canyon swings. The wall and roof retracts to expose the sublime views and fresh air. Each room is private with own shower too. So peaceful and relaxing. I absolutely loved this place to unwind at the end of tge day. Great service and free shuttle service... More

After supporting a friend who ran the Queenstown marathon and completing the 10km walk myself three girls headed for Onsen to relax. What an amazing place so good and such a beautiful setting.

What a great addition to the Queenstown offering. This was the perfect sundowner relaxation after a day on the slopes. The hot pool facility has been cleverly designed to provide totally private hot pools each with a stunning view over the Shotover river. Go in daylight so you don't miss the view. Lovely cedar hot tubs. $90 but a worthwhile... More

This attraction is definitely a must-try! Booked this due to popularity and as a treat for my boyfriend who turned 22 - just days before. Lovely and relaxing. Would definitely come back!

Relax, Rejuvenate, and refined is how i would describe my experience at Onsen. The valley view is breath taking, and you would think you were the only people there. Great Facitilies available, shower/hairdryer, moisturiser. Really rounds out the whole experience.

Highly recommend this for a couple looking for a quiet night. The staff went above and beyond to ensure that we were taken care of. My wife and I had the Indulgence Package and it was the perfect ending to a long day of sightseeing.

As you sit in your hot tub admiring what is without doubt a spectacular view, remember you have paid almost $90 (and $6 dollars for towels ) for you and your loved one to sit in the same water that had been used by numerous others. It is brushed over but be aware they do not change the water between... More

Due to the popularity I booked the Onsen hot pools before our arrival in Queentown... We did the "Candlelight" package at night, was amazing. We loved it that much that before leaving I re-booked to do the "Indulgence" package on the last day of our trip! This something I will do on every visit to QT! Great after a day... More

This is an absolute must-do for anyone visiting Queenstown. The views were stunning, the room and pool were immaculate and the staff were brilliant. I have never been in a more relaxing, perfect environment. Exceptional!
