There are several kinds of hot pools inside the Polynesian Spa. If I'm not mistaken it takes 25 NZD to get into the common one and more expensive to get into the private ones. But then of course, it's most expensive (around 40NZD) to try to lakeside pools, which I believe are definitely worth the money. There are 4 lakeside pools with different water temperature and they are all located right in front of the breathtaking Rotorua Lake. You can chill in those pools for as long as you want. When I was leaving I walked pass other hot pools and they looked pretty ordinary to me. Also you can spend 85NZD on a 30min body scrub and massage; entrance fee to the lakeside pools is included.
