We had a very invigorating dip in the thermal pools on a sunny afternoon. The venue was quite busy but there was enough room to enjoy several pools without feeling overcrowded, although it was very noisy. Well worth a visit.

Loved the pools, great choices of pool types and temperatures, loved the massaging pools and the thermal treats! We were on our honeymoon and the pool photographer took extra photos for us which came out really well. There always seemed to be lots of room in the pools and though there seemed to be quite a few people I never... More

Visiting these pools was one of the highlights of our trip to South Island. On a chilly afternoon, there was nothing nicer than sitting in a thermally heated pool or two, or swimming laps in wonderful water which does not sting one's eyes when swimming without goggles. A blissful,experience.

Enjoyed the pools. Made some new friends. Surprised to see a man working above the ladies changing room that day - not the best plan with those large windows in the roof!!

The pools are beautiful with many to pick from but if you are looking for a quiet relaxation time don't look for it here especially in the weekends. Overall experience was stil great hydro slides and super bowl are a must - perfect for all ages young and old :).

we started the day with an easy hike up conical hill which is just a few minutes away. That was fantastic and we moved on to Hanmer Springs. It wasn't too expensive since we brought towels and lunch with us. At first I was worried it was too crowded...there where a bunch of Chinese tourist packed in the warm pools... More

Very busy. Various pools which varied in temperature. Relaxing but you had to fit in between people. Nothing like the pools in Japan.

My partner and I had walked 3 hours to the waterfall the day before and needed the pool to relax our aches and pains. The pool were fantastic and just what we needed. We meant to stay for about 2 hours but ended staying for 5. Great value for money,
