I was a bit wary coming here because I'm a winter Wellington sea swimmer and I'm not used to hot pools. Still I found the coolest of all the pools and did laps for half an hour. I felt so guilty, indulging myself in warm water - still, It was nice. Had to keep muttering over and over to myself... More

These are not natural spring pools but man made. Good if you have children but expensive for what is in the end just hot swimming pools

The pools were very clean and it looked absolutely safe as there were a lot of lifeguards around.There are 5 different pools that get hotter the higher up you go. The whole facility looks charming and the staff is friendly and accommodating. It’s a good place to relax, especially if you’re a couple. The warmest of the hot pools on... More

The pools are a lovely way to fill in a weekend with friends. Great to just sit in the warm water & chat away to friends & strangers. A great way to meet people face to face. The swimming suit spinner in the changing rooms is great to get the excess water out of your togs.

and these ones do not disappoint. We spent two hours there and there is a pleasant range of pools although none of them go quite as hot as i would like, the kids had a great time as usual.

Couldn't see the view of lake tekapo from the pools. Great day out with different temperature pools to cool down or walm up. My partner took a mouthfull of water and was pretty crook the next day. If this was the cause we are unsure...

We enjoyed our time at the springs it wasnt to busy. Our kids went on the trippo slide but due to it being a cold day the water on the base of each slide was super cold. Theres been some good improvements made for kids since we last came. Still a wee bit pricey for us but we enjoyed it.

Another stop along the way to Wanaka is the Tekapo Springs. Located on the skirts of Mt John lake you can enjoy several hours of de stressing in the hot pools. There are several. There is one for children, one for family, one for adults only and one for everyone. It appeared that each one was hotter then the other.... More

Good range of pools / facilities in a nice location, but quite over priced. Seemed to be popular with tourists / campers, although didn't have many local visitors.
