We picked the right day to come as being a holiday weekend we expected it to be busier. Had a lovely relaxing time in the new adult only pools, with massaging jets. Price is a bit dear still. $22 per adult.

Visited the Day Spa while the rest of my group visited the pools. I booked in for an early morning treatment and massage, and was surprised to see the place was already bustling with guests. I didn't mind that much seeing as though the rooms were still reasonably quiet, and my treatment wasn't affected. Had a lovely relaxing time overall,... More

This was one of our wet weather option on a day trip from Christchurch and it was great. Very relaxing and opting for a massage as well was a good move. Would recommend

This is the third time we have visited these springs. Every time there are improvements since. The last visit. The pools vary a lot in temperature which is great, especially on hot days. We loved the new lazy river.

So many different pools you don't need a private one. It can get a little busy and noisy though but it does not spoil anything. Be mindful if the sun is shining. Very easy to get your head and shoulders burnt.

I'm glad we didn't travel too far out of our way to see this, it is over commercialised more of a themed water park. You walk in the gates and all you can smell is chlorine?? I was expecting sulphur. And all the pools are man made! just not what I was expecting at all and at $22 per head... More

Entry is $22 per adult for the pool entry, slides are extra. Lockers are available for gear storage. There was a range of pools all at different temperatures. We enjoyed trying them all. The pools were very clean and had good supervision from lifeguards. There was no chemical smell apart from the sulphur pool which we tried and wasn't to... More
