“Excellent facility and staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 27, 2012

We had booked the 9.00 pm slot as it was recommended that night time was the best. We were greated by friendly staff and invited to bring a wine to enjoy while we were in our tub. Apparently they close at 10.00 pm but they would have stayed open until 10.30 pm to allow us our 90 minute booking. I would advise a 8.30 pm booking as the latest time, to be on the safe side. The facilities are excellent for changing into suitable atire. The tub was equally excellent. We met the manager on our way out and he was happy to chat away about the tubs and where they were made.

“Warm up with a view”

Private hot tubs with great mountain views. Unbelievable. Inspired by the owners' visit to a Japanese Onsen

“Brilliant, Relaxing experience.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2012

We stumbled across this little gem of a place quite by accident. Didn't even know it existed. But now that we know about it...you should know about it too.
Fabulous way to unwind in your private, yet outdoor, hot tub. These hot tubs are heated by a woodfire burning within a metal furnace inside the hot tub. Great idea who ever came up with that. You can regulate the temp by cranking up the fire or dumping cold water in.
I first thought the price was a little expensive but when I was told we could stay in there as long as we liked...the price didn't matter anymore.

Imagine...laying back in your hottub at your desired temp..looking out over the majestic snow covered peaks. Try it..you won't be sorry :)

“Great experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 6, 2012

No one could expect this little surprise in this location. It is such a great experience and a good value for the money. The tubs are private (with private chaging rooms and showers) and they put new Glacier water for you. The tubs are heated by fire-wood and the experience is just unique. Totally advisable, and the best way to spend 30 dollars for 2 hours of pleasure in Omarama

“Best hot tubs/saunas!!! Must do!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 17, 2012

Aaaahhh what a perfect ending to my birthday weekend! This place is magic - we had a private hot tub/sauna (complimentary towels); they're situated around the lake, but in a way that you can't see anyone else, and they can't see you :)

The hot tub's outdoors - the scenery is lovely and would be epic at night time too (with clear skies). Hot tubs have little fires to manage the heat - so cool!

The sauna was perfectly hot (2 levels), with a changing room and coooold shower :)

Friendly staff too - what an awesome day :)
