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!

Extremely private with showers in your room. The views from the hot pools are beautiful and seeing the stars from above is a memory you'll... More

Hot pools, bubbly, ice cream and great views - couldn't think of a better way to spend an afternoon! We had the 1.5 hours and it was perfect- 1 hour would have been too short

The private Hot Pool is just a perfect way to unwind after a week of skiing. The roof opens up to give you a great view of the Shotover river and night sky. They offer pick-up and drop-off services from the town centre which is an added bonus if you don't have your own transport. The candle light package is... More

Best way to relax and unwind in QT! Personal hot pools with a spectacular view and the choice to have champagne and candles just tops it off.

After a busy day of activities there is no better way to unwind than with a soak at the Onsen Hot Pools. From the moment the complimentary shuttle picked us up in town right through to the moment we were dropped off, it was perfect. The private pool was the perfect temperature, opening the roof up was exciting. It felt... More

We've been to a few hotpools in NZ and this was by far our favourite. It's very reasonably priced. The private rooms have the most incredible view over the shotover river, you can rasie the roof or have it down depending on the weather and change the temperature of the water. really romantic and relaxing. thanks guys, much needed!

Just stunning. We visited on our honeymoon. I had made a booking error which was realised on arrival (I booked 10 days later!) the lovely receptionist rebooked us with no fuss at all. We booked a 1 hr visit with candles. It's very clean you shower in the room prior to going into the hot tub. Great temperature and you... More
