Kids loved ice skating while it snowed, parents loved the open fires and hot drinks. Quite expensive for larger groups (we had four adults and four children in one family group), so some of us didn't skate.

Visited Tekapo springs on 11th April. Mobin assisted us on the reception and helped us select the right package. We selected the tubing and hot water pool combo. During the 7 tubing rides, Jed the supervisor at Tubing assisted us in understanding safety, pushing tubes and having lots of fun! Kudos to cheerful and enthusiastic staff like Jed who put... More

Went on a beautiful sunny day and relaxed in the pools looking out on an amazing view of Lake Tekapo. Having an adults only pool is a great idea! The ticket allows multiple entries throughout the day so well worth it. After we went to enjoy a beer at the cafe and on being ID'd and finding out it was... More

Tekapo Springs always worth a visit when travelling the Mackenzie country. Always found the facilities clean and staff friendly. The vege chickpea burger just dandy, too!! Ice skating can be another option. Buy a day pass and return any time until 9pm.

Thanks for your review! We are pleased to hear that you enjoyed your time with us. Do come again over winter - the scenery is breathtaking with the added dusting of snow. Ice skating, tube-park, pools and relaxing treatments from our therapists, the best way to spend a winters day! More

Relaxing experience with a wonderful view. Decently priced for an enjoyable experience. 3 large hot pools all slightly differing in temperature, an attaching day spa as well. Great location near the Forrest overlooking the lake and mountains!

Was a lovely setting. Very relaxing. Enjoyed the 'adults only' pool (temp too high for them possibly). Facilities were clean, pity we missed out on enjoying the Ice Skate Park, which is due to re open in about a week or so. Shame that there isnt a slight discount if you happen to be staying at the nearby Motel/Caravan Park.
