We bought a day pass which meant we could come and go throughout the day. It was a lovely relaxing and tranquil place. There are different pools at different temperatures depending upon how hot one can handle. The staff were friendly and drinks and food could be ordered poolside. No kids so one was able to relax. A great day... More

Fantastic place for relaxation and calm. Very tastefully decorated with calm and relaxing music playing. Staff is warm and friendly and are always ready to assist. You can set up a tab at the reception so that you can order food and drinks while you are enjoying a warm dip in the spring. I really loved the crater lake where... More

If there was to be a jewel in the crown of what is on offer in the Coromandel Peninsula, then this would by far and away take the title. In fact, I very much doubt there would be anything to rival this in terms of thermal attraction anywhere in the country. Imagine a place that has been sculptured throughout to... More

What a way to end a weekend in Whitianga. Relax and de-stress with the beautiful calm kid-free Lost Spring. Followed by fantastic food in the cafe.

Beautiful spot, soaking in the various hot pools swimming in and out of caves, great way to spend a day. Bit pricey for an hour, but make the most of it, spend the day and have a massage or lunch, we did. Definitely go again for a special treat.

Why go to The Warehouse, buy some togs and then luxuriate in a hot spring pool! Fantastic, mature setting - spotlessly clean with plentiful supplies of drinking water. Restaurant looked nice but we had other plans.

The natural spring waters here are really lovely. The pools are different temperatures, so there is somewhere just right for everyone. Although the pools and environment are man made, it is beautifully landscaped with tropical plants and flowers, grottos, a cave you can swim into, lots of crystals and amethyst geodes. Drinks and food can be ordered at the pools... More

Beautiful hot springs with staff to serve you poolside, cocktails, and food. Man made but very well done with lovely spa. I purchased a package which included a cocktail, cheese/meat plate, facial and entry to the pools.

Wow, we were taken away to the islands, what a special time we had. Very peaceful, romantic , relaxing and warm. A lovely atmosphere due to the lush vegetation and warm pools. We had a seafood platter for 2 at the restaurant. The platter looked fantastic, and tasted just as good. All in all a wonderful evening
