For a first timer it could be quite surprising how much the hot pools smell but don't let that stop you. There are multiple pools at different temperatures, which is perfect for individuals. We paid $5 each and we had such a fantastic time, even better because it was a raining, cold, winter day.

We came here (Ginns place, there are two) on recommendation and basically knew what to expect. $5 per person, very basic facilities, 8 wood-lined pools with dark murky water and sand bottom, only one cold shower. The spring is natural and unfiltered so hot mineral water is continuously bubbling up through the sand - ouch! - if you sit right... More

I live locally and I go often to these beautiful natural healing pools. Not only good for aches and pains but also for stress relief.

I have visited the hot pools at Ngawha many timers and have encouraged visitors and town people alike to go there and enjoy the health benefits and relaxation of these pools.Overseas visitors cant believe such an attraction is so cheap-but good for you. Dont let the presentation fool you. This is a place never to be missed when you visit... More

These hot springs are brilliant. Even the puddles outside in the car park are bubbling! Don't be put off by first apperances, these pools are as authentic and natural as you can get. While they are basic, the hot pool experience is amazing. Dark pools that range in temperature from 37-45 degrees (ouch that was hot!) and milky white pools... More

The Ngawha hot springs are located just out of Kaikohe (half way between the Bay of Islands and Kauri Coast regions). Ginns is one of 2 spas, I tried both and found this one to be better, they also have accommodation, camping area and picnic grounds. The facilities while very rustic were in better condition, cleaner and have a better... More
