Thoroughly enjoyed our first hot pools experience in New Zealand. We had a great time and was amazing being surrounded by the beautiful mountains. Very clean, good price and nice to have 3 pools to choose from.

Thank you for your review and we are happy to hear you came to visit us after a days skiing. One great aspect about Tekapo in Winter is the choice of 3 top ski fields which are all within 40 minutes driving time. The views from the hot pools are mesmerizing, whether early in the morning with the rising sun,... More

Really loved the couple of relaxing hours we spent in the pools. Gorgeous view, nice variety of temperatures, clean changing rooms. Not as many pools as Hanmer or Rotorua (we went on a day when it was very quiet so had plenty of room, but could imagine it might get busy at other times), but would certainly recommend for a...

Located close to TEKAPO holiday park. Though it is pricey compared with the overall facility, I think that this is worth visiting. We visited at night, so we could not see the lake in the pool. But it was also a good experience soaking in warm water at a snowy night

Thank you for your review and it was an absolute pleasure hosting you all at Tekapo Springs. Ice skating can be a challenge at times and the frames / penguins offer a lot of assistance to anyone on the ice.
