We visited the spa for an evening massage and then a dip in the pools before dinner. Everything you'd expect from a tourist attraction like this, yes it's a bit pricey for some but it's a unique visitor attraction that you don't do every day.

Clean changing rooms and toilets. Swimming costume wringer. Private showers and cubicles and family only rooms. There is an adjacent restaurant and shop. There were plenty of lifeguards round also.... More

Loved the Private Pools, the outlook of these and appreciated the cleanliness of it overall. Spa facility added another dimension of relaxation. Totally worthwhile experience.

My first time there was back in 2011 and when you are traveling with an 18 month old and another adult it really is hard to relax because you want or need to be around to help the other adult. But my first time there was an enjoyable as it was in late February /early March and imagine lying back... More

Having been to several hot pools around New Zealand, Hanmer Springs fell a little short of our expectations. It felt very commercialized, and the pools just didn't feel as good for the skin as others that I've tried. It was a nice experience on a cold day, but I wouldn't rush back. 30 Min private sauna for an extra $8... More

What a wonderful place to visit, we especially enjoy relaxing in the pools on a cool, clear winters night, when the night sky is amazing. A must do when visiting Canterbury. Oh and I must mention the great staff 😀

The thermal pools are nice and the water is great. We were happy that it was a family friendly location. A bit disappointed that most of the kids areas were closed for maintenance. Two day pass (one entry on each of two days) is a pretty good deal.

Have been here several times over the years and am never dissapointed with the Thermal Pools and Spa. When its cold outside it just seems fitting to wallow in a hot Thermal pool. Price is about right, $19 per adult, Lovely welcoming staff, easy access to changing rooms, clean toilet and changing rooms. We spent the xtra dollar and got... More

These thermal springs provide a totally relaxing experience just by getting in the pools but if you want even more pampering it's all there. Think about a private poolo if there are a few in your party. Plenty of Body Mid Soul stuff here and it's all exceptional. I have indicated 1 -2 hours if you just do the pools,... More

I will start by saying that I thoroughly enjoyed my massage and hot pools experience, however I do feel slightly let down by the reception advice I was given on pregnancy massage. For starters, I don't think you should advertise pregnancy massage if you don't have a pregnancy specific table, lying on your side propped up by pillows is not... More
