“disappointing waste of money.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2014

We arrived at 8..15 on a Friday evening and paid $30 f or 4 of us. upon entering the pools you are met by a sign stating , "strictly no clothing to be worn I the pool ". This policy is not enforced as there were over 20 people wearing all manner of clothing bar togs, when I asked a lifeguard why this wasn't enforced, he said it was too much hassle!
my husband went to use the sauna at 8.40 and was told it was closed for cleaning, we then decided to leave and went to use a family changing room, again, closed for cleaning, this is well over an hour before the premises close, while I appreciate many places start the close down process early, this is ridiculous, given we had only arrived at 8.15 and were not told we would have limited time to use the facilities. They advertise they are open until 10pm, this isn't the case, check before parting with your $

“A luxurious oceanside soak in a huge hot tub”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2014

I rented a bicycle from Fishbike next door and road up the coastal bike path to Akihiri. When I turned in the bike, I headed straight for the spa next door and eased my aching muscles and got all cleaned up!

“What a nice way to relax!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2014

We visited the spa in the late afternoon and had a wonderful time. The variety of pools and ameities is excellent, and provide a great way to relax, particularly if you have already engaged in more strenuous acitivies in the region earlier in the day. The entry price is very reasonable, and the views are great. The size of the pools ensures that there is room to spread out even when there a lot of people present. Highly recommended!

“"Very Relaxing"”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2014

Ocean Spa is by far a great place to relax in Napier. In the evening and at night you are able to look over the ocean or see the stars and relax knowing the air is cool on the outside when you get out. The temperatures are good and they have saunas and spas on site. The only thing i wish they had more pools :)
