You can buy discount vouchers at www.bookme.co.nz for massages at the dayspa, or entry to the hot springs. We paid 1/2 price - $50 for a 1hr massage. We had a mix-up with the appointment time and the day spa were very nice in accommodating us. We also paid 1/2 price - $10 for adult entry. Just make sure you buy your vouchers in advance - you can't buy them on BookMe on the day.
We all enjoyed the 3 outdoor hot spring pools which have stunning views of the lake and mountains. Each pool has a different temperature with one pool at 40C and adults only.
There is also an outdoor ice rink as well as a 150m long snow tube slope. At night from 6-9pm you can ski/snowboard the slope for $30 but I wouldn't recommend it - if you're a beginner the slope would be too steep and if you're better than beginner you'd find it boring.
There is a conveyor belt which transports you and your snow tube (double tubes are available so you can slide down with a friend or child) up the slope.
In one hour my kids (aged 8.5 and 7) got over 10 rides for only an extra $11 on top of their spa pool entry fee - all up they paid about $27 and for an extra $6 they could have gone ice-skating as well (skate hire included).
There is a coffee shop with open fire and comfy lounge - serving meals as well. There's also an outdoor area with some benches and tables.
Hot showers and hair dryers are provided. BYO towel and shampoo. You can hire towels and swimming costumes.
A very reasonably-priced attraction. We arrived about 11.30am and left about 6pm after having a shower.
Lake Tekapo town is about a 20 minute walk along the lake.
If you are going during the week check if they are expecting any school groups. The day we went there was a crowd of about 60 primary school children. Luckily we got in the spa pools before them and while they were in the spa pool my kids went snow-tubing. It wouldn't be particularly relaxing in the hot pools with a school group visiting and the change-room was chaotic while they were in there!
