Miranda has been one of the best hot springs in New Zealand as long as I can remember. There are large public pools at a comfortable swimming temperature, with lockers to keep your clothes and valuables. The sign said don't leave your valuables in your vehicle in the car parking lot. There is also a smaller pool that is almost... More

We enjoyed our afternoon, the pools were relaxing and they also had a large pool sized jumper to rebounding. They sold refreshments and had numerous areas for picnicking.

This facility is a bit dated but the pools are delightful. There are two pools; one very large moderately temped filled with families and kids of all ages jumping, playing and having a great time. Adults can retreat to a smaller, hot pool and get a relaxing quiet soak. We went on a rainy day and it was the perfect... More

I read some reviews about the staff being unfriendly and rude so was a little hesitant about going. The staff were friendly and the water was really relaxing, and was well worth the hours drive from auckland. We had fish, chips and burgers from the takeaways in Kaiaua, 4ks north of the springs which were really good. The place was... More

Suitable for all ages and includes sizeable picnic areas, shop and takeaway food. Huge heated swimming pool plus childrens pools and hot spa. Great campground next door with their own good sized private hot soak pool, all newly renovated. Great for autumn winter and spring, and suitable for summer too.

There's a large open air heated pool that's great for families and a hotter roofed spa that is reserved for adults. There are four private wooden pools too which are lovely. Unusually, pass-outs are offered and since they close at 21:00, you can have several visits on the same day which makes the cost reasonable. My wife and I really... More

Have just visited these hot pools and had a fabulous time. What a way to while away the Monday blues. Beautiful blue skies and a huge blue pool full of natural thermal water. Stepping down the steps that surround the pool into the mineral rich water is just heaven. And when you want to turn the heat up a bit,... More

It cost $14 each to get in. We enjoyed the warmth of the hot pools, and the very large one was a novelty. However, we were put off by just how run down the place was. The single available shower was luke warm at best, and the shower/toilet block was really old, grotty looking. Wouldnt recommend.
