would be good as well, especially in the middle of summer when you have a choice of warm, hot and hotter on a 35 degree day.

We do have a plunge pool as part of the steam & sauna upgrade. This pool is at lake temperature which ranges from 8-12... More

The wooded setting with views of the lake is very picturesque and the whole setup is relaxed. By that I mean it is less commercial than say Hanmer Springs. The water is fresh water so it is really an outdoor heated swimming pool which was great as you did not have to worry about the children putting their heads under... More

Reviewed by 9 year old son: the pools were clean and warm. I would like to have had a private cubicle to change in. I enjoyed it.😅

A great setting and addition to Tekapo. Pools were clean fresh and relaxing with 3 pools at 36 38 and 40 degrees. Kids enjoyed it and the adult only pool is best used when you can leave your kids to frolic in the lower pool. List price is $70 for 2 adults and 2 kids - so look on bookme... More

The springs have a lovely setting being by Lake Tekapo - there are three nice pools, one children free for extra relaxation! The bottom pool was great fun for kids though - more child friendly than other springs round the island. On site spa is also very good to visit.

Thank you for taking the time to review Tekapo Springs. We have to agree with you that our hot pools are located in stunning natural scenery. With the three pools catering to slightly different needs Tekapo Springs is a great day out for everyone from families to couples. More

Just sit back and relax. Great place to unwind after a few holes of golf. Three different heated pools. Not too many kids. Just great.

We paid for a package here which was fairly well priced myself and the older boys went snow tubing which was excellent and then ice skating was excellent as well.

We went late at night which was good but obviously no view. After nearly an hour we were over the heat and wanted to leave but stayed longer as we felt for the price we weren't getting our monies worth if we had left.

What a lovely place, went back twice in one day. Managed to get discount tickets using book me, they were nearly half the price, not bad value. Staff really welcoming and the pools are so clean as were the facilities.

It was a freezing night when we went and the hot springs was just so nice and relaxing. I was there for about 2 hours and I just did not want to get out. The price is quite reasonable and the free shuttle service is good for anyone who doesn't have a car to get there.

Hi Daniel, Thank you for taking the time to review Tekapo Springs. The hot pools are defiantly a great way to warm up on the cooler evenings and you are not alone in finding it hard to pry yourself from the water. We hope you enjoyed your time in Lake Tekapo! More
