Nice place to go for a treat, very expensive $38 for 90 minutes, if you ask for a tab you get extra 30mins for free, on your visa, you don't have to buy anything else i.e. drink etc. The pools are beautiful, and there is water there so you don't dehydrate and there is no charge for it.

Purchased the couples day spa package, including a one hour hot stone massage, all day pool access, a very generous and tasty antipasto platter and two glasses of bubbly. Thoroughly enjoyed the massage, highly relaxing, and the therapists were very friendly and professional. Pool-side staff were also very friendly and attentive. Would definitely recommend this for anyone looking to treat... More

It was nice here, I guess I was expecting it to be a little less artificial with outdoors areas. But it was still a peaceful place, great for couples or with friends. I do think it is a bit overpriced for entry. We got a couples massage whilst we were here which was nice. Staff were average some of the... More

Nice place, the bigger pool was a little bit cool for the winter time so only dipped in twice briefly. Top crater pool was very relaxing though. Perhaps a little over priced for the 1.5 hour session I thought there may have been more pools to use in winter than just the 2. Seeing as it was a cool day... More

Fantastic service, we had a couples massage. This was booked as part of the package with The Glass Bottom Boat. We would love to come back to The Lost Spring for a whole day, and would definitely re-visit the day spa.

An amazing place in Whitanga. A must do. Very clean and serene place. Good choice of drinks also. Try to catch the late entry as it is more fun then.

Only one of the pools was hot enough to sit in. The other was a bit too cool for the cold day we visited on. But it's a beautiful design, nice massage at the spa, and the food was nice. Staff were helpful. Change room could have been warmer but it was clean.

I went with reservations, particularly because of the price, as it seems far too costly for the one hour session! However we might have gone at the right time as the lady gave us an extra hour for free so was very happy with that! We went right on dusk and it started to rain so it was great. The... More

We've been twice now. I reckon that this place has the most stunning subtropical gardens in New Zealand, and as you make your way around the pools you will be in awe of the landscape. Great place, the massage and cafe is always good. We do always feel that we enjoyed ourselves even though we have given over a fistful... More
