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!

We went twice, once in the afternoon and once at night. We opted for the romantic candlelit experience and weren't disappointed. The option to open the window/roof louvers is wonderful and allows for magnificient views of shotover river and the beautiful starlit queenstown sky at night.

Fantastic new-ish (about 8 years old) Queenstown experience. A private row of secluded hot tubs, clean, with own shower and dressing area, looking straight out onto the Remarkables mountain range and overlooking the Shotover river. We were in peak summer which was grand; in winter with the snow on the range it would be utterly gorgeous. Retractable roof so you... More

The private room was amazing! Perfect end to a long day. Bought a pamper package which was well worth the money, if you take your own towels they can discount the package cost as well

My sister recommended going to Onsen hot pools and she was right a very good experience and quite unique. The private hot pool and the removable room front made for a very relaxing , different and enjoyable activity. We drove there rather than have to get into Queenstown and park just to be picked up, finding the place and parking... More

Onsen hot pools is exactly how it sounds! hot pools! They are the perfect temperature with settings so you can control everything! The retracting wall/roofs allows the pool to become outside and it is all completely private! Excellent quality, value and very welcoming staff with exceptional customer service! One of the highlights of my NZ holiday- I even went back... More

Great time at the hot pools, whole experience from pick up to pool to drop off. We went from 9pm till 10pm times it right as we could see the view as the sunset. Great views across the shotover river.

My husband and I had the most relaxing time in the hot spa. The pictures do not do the view and serenity justice! You feel instantly relaxed. Transfer from town is great, it could be improved if the transfer went twice an hour so not just for guests who book on the hour. We will be back in winter!

We work in the hospitality industry and this is such a wasted opportunity! Then again, doing it as they are with six tubs, they are still minting it! The pick up in town was good and the driver so polite and friendly. The arrival and walk down the steps, lovely. The main reception building seemed more like a modern church,... More

The spa looked fantastic and it was set up well and the view was fantastic. Definitely glad I did it. I think it is a little over priced but I am still glad I did it once. Absolutely beautiful view. For the people that are talking about the same water being used... do you think other hotels and public spas... More
