We loved this place. We had hoped to visit the private pool, but it wasn't available the morning we visited. Although admission for 40 minutes in a private pool isn't that much more than general admission, I'm not sure we would have really gotten our money's worth anyway. The pools are deliciously hot and we found 20 or 30 minutes to be plenty, especially because there are no cool dipping pools.
I especially appreciated that many of the thermal pools have a sun shade built over them. New Zealand's sun is extremely intense, so having the shade eliminated the need to slather sunscreen all over ourselves.
Plan to bring your own towel. If you forget, you can rent one in the office. All in all, we highly recommend this thermal pool
