Plenty of hot pools and cold water pools, waterslides and more. Like the range of temperatures in different pools. Lots of fun in summer but a bit chilly moving between pools in the winter months. Definitely the most popular drawcard for hanmer springs but still plenty of space in the pools.

Always great on a cold night out. Pool hopping till you get to the changing rooms is great as it is cold when you get out.

Great pool complex with plenty of activity or non-activity options. We visited with our young children and they just loved it. There are also Adult only areas so you can have time out from kids splashing. I did think that the change rooms could do with a freshen up, clean enough but looking a bit tired...and also more places to... More

A long soak in the pools is a great reprieve from the day's travels and activities. The pools are however very popular and at times it can be hard to find a quiet spot with a little privacy despite the many smaller pools available. Well set out for families with children.

We visited a few thermal/hot springs in New Zealand and these were our favorite! My husband was reluctant to spend the money since we had found natural (free) hot springs in a river, but I found a coupon in a tourist magazine for a free private pool for thirty minutes with entry, so we used that. What a variety! There... More

These pools are the perfect way to wind down over the weekend. Was school holidays but was surprisingly not too full of children running around. Love the pools- will be back for more!

Great for tired muscles. Lifeguards looked alert and professional, although a little hard to see in dark coats, but they were there! Facilities lovely and clean. It was not over crowded despite being the school holidays. Best way to end a day....

We have kept coming back here for several years as it's such a fabulous place. We prefer the pools in winter because it's so lovely with the snowy mountains and crisp air. Staff are excellent and the pools are clean, modern, very user friendly.
