About
As far back as 500BC, Hippocrates recognised the benefits of warmed seawater for its ability to rebalance and detoxify our bodies. Salt water bathing was believed to improve mobility by easing muscle and joint inflammation, and general aches and pains. Today, those healing properties remain, and it’s all right here beneath the majesty of Mauao, Mount Maunganui. Come and soak in our heated salt water pools and experience the benefits for yourself. Top it off with a massage from our friendly and experienced therapists to really treat your body.

Haven’t used the Hot pools since the last maintenance closure and decided to give the private pools a visit. The upgrade in tiles choice and Bluetooth speaker made it feel very Luxurious.

The whole facility was very clean and super friendly staff.

We had a great time here with family, the kids loved the pool of course.
This is a great spot for a winter escape and relaxing bath with kids.
We did not realise but you can happily take your own meals in and take advantage of a longer stay, as the entry price for a family around NZ$50.

There are two main pools, one warmer than the other, as well as two spa pools and a children's pool. For a extra charges there are three private pools [30 minutes, minimum two persons] and a massage service. Open cubbys or lockers for storage of clothing, etc. Two hours on site parking.

Terrible experience. Vikki lifeguard had major attitude, caused a confrontation and behaved totally immature smirking and laughing at myself and my children. No manager on duty. Have complained to bay venues as we felt so uncomfortable we left. Rules have become strict about having children in the pool even though my children were all teenagers apart from one 10 year old. I actively supervised and they were all within 2 metres of me. I was taking photos of them and still engaging in conversation from the poolside. I had one headphone in and one ear free and demonstrated to Vikki that I could engage in conversation and hear and see my children at all times. Vikki would not leave me alone and then brought another lifeguard into the confrontation. When I asked to speak to who was in charge I was told no manager was on that day. Really unpleasant experience. Rules changed only 1 month ago and the lifeguards are on a power trip. We were regular users of the pools before this experience and we always had a lot of fun. They have absolutely ruined it for us and we won’t be back.

Kia ora Nichole Thank you for placing your feedback regarding your experience at the Mount Hot Pools. I have reviewed your feedback, report written by the staff on the day and CCTV footage of your visit. From what I observed you were informed of our supervision requirements upon entry, then by our Team Leader on poolside while your headphones were on and then re-informed of these requirements when you still did not meet them by our Onsite Supervisor. We at Bay Venues are dedicated to the safety of everyone visiting our venues, with an extra focus on children 10 years and under. Our staff acted in accordance with our ‘Keep Me Safe’ Child Supervision requirements in that a caregiver 16 years and over must be actively supervising children 10 years and under, with no distractions. When approached to remove your headphones while supervising your child, had you done this they would have not approached you again. Please find further information here: taurangapools.co.nz / keep-me-safe We are sorry you left feeling underwhelmed with your experience and hope you now feel better informed on the supervision requirements across our 5 Tauranga Aquatic Facilities for smoother future visits Kind Regards Matthew Strange Manager: Mount Hot Pools

We were able to book a private pool on line with absolutly no bother. We found the pool to be too hot for us and in hind sight should have just used the main pool. A private pool for 2 seniors was $32.00.Was just a little bit smelly around the edges under the wooden frame...could do with a bit of a spruce up. Other than that it was just OK.

One of my favourite hot pool experiences, very reasonable prices for seniors and if you staying next door at the motor camp. It was the cheapest entry fee charge yet, throughout the north island, as I always seek out hot pools in most towns.
It is a beautiful presented premises with very good pools of different temps, clean and tidy. Great service at reception from the girls especially Sarah, most helpful.
There is space for everyone, I chose a quiet early morning time. Also a toddlers pool for the littles.

Himself and I, after climbing Mount Manganui decided to try the Mount Hot Pools. We were not disappointed! Temps range between 31 and 37 degrees Celsius and really helped those aching muscles. Highly recommend!

Great for families! Lots of space and several different temperature pools. Need to keep an eye on pool depths though, it does change. The kiddie pool was popular with both our 5 and 7 year old. We also got a rousing game of Marco polo going with about 10 kids. Not much seating available.

Visited the Hot pools on a Saturday. Very well maintained and friendly reception staff. Several pools to choose from. Only slight negative is that the lifeguards made no attempt to keep the one swimming lane free for lap swimmers so other pool users were constantly intruding into the lane.
Used the massage facilities and cannot recommend highly enough the wonderful and expert massage that I received from Roberta

I had an amazing massage with Justine followed by a soak in the hot pools. Very clean and well maintained, with jets for a bit more massage. Friendly and helpful staff made for a very pleasant experience. Highly recommend
