Visited here on a lovely warm day and thoroughly enjoyed relaxing in the various pools. There are 5 different pools of varying heats with views of the beautiful nearby mountains. Only in one could you swim properly - but proper swimming is hardly the aim of this lovely laid back place. Heat, places to sit either in or out of... More

This place is a best kept secret! They offer five pools at different temperatures. We spent the afternoon enjoying the beautiful lake view and exploring the temperature range between the pools. It is very clean and the staff is very friendly. Fantastic lake views!

Hi cececheah, Thank you for writing a review on us. We're glad you were able to take advantage of our Bookme deals and enjoy a relaxing soak in our hot pools. Although we do have a stunning view, it's not Mt. Cook you're looking at, it's the Two Thumb Mountain Range :) We wish it was Mt. Cook!!! Thanks again... More

We recently spent a very relaxing couple of hours enjoying the pools. The weather was perfect and the shade sails across parts of the pools protected us from the sun. With a choice of different pools with a variety of temperatures, we were able to choose the perfect warmth for us. The changing rooms were clean with good facilities including... More

There was a hockey tournament taking place, the hot pools were full of children playing catch. If we had known we would have been constantly getting sprayed with stray balls hitting the water around us we would have come back another day. The do actually have a children's pool however I believe that is was not heated and this is... More

Lovely series of hot pools and day spa. Flexible admission so you can fit in a hike up Mt John between visits. Check out entrance fee deals on bookme website for best value.

I really really wanted to give this place a higher rating as the staff was very nice and accommodating but I cannot say I recommend coming here 1. Pool - They are OK pools overlooking the lake. A bit fakey for my opinion. I felt they were not warm enough so maybe they are nice in winter 2. Facilities -... More

Another amazing experience. So this is my second time here at Tekapo Springs and it gets better and better every time! The first time I visited was in October 2015 and I'm back again to experience the soothing effects of the springs. Heated artificially, you can take jewelry in the water and there won't be any adverse affects on your... More

We only had an afternoon to spend here and lazed in the hot pools and sauna, but you could spend a day here - lots of activities and you can get massages as well. We'll be coming back!
