Owner description: Located in beautiful Lake Tekapo, Tekapo Springs is a must-do for everyone, with a fun mix of relaxing and exciting activities. Soak in the stunning views from one of our 3 hot pools (36 - 39 degrees Celsius), all beautifully landscaped with native plants. Relax in our Steam & Sauna rooms and try the cold plunge pool. Children (and the young at heart!) love our Aqua Play Area with exciting interactive water features and shallow pool for playing in. There's a deep pool for swimming a few laps or jumping off the side. In summer, dare to ride the TRIPPO, an 11 metre high waterslide with three chutes providing hours of fun! In winter, get fit and have fun on our outdoor ice skating rink or try the thrilling 150-metre Snow Tube! Soak up some “me time” with a revitalising facial or massage at the Day Spa then sample the scrumptious menu at our fully licensed cafe. By night, Soak in the Stars with Tekapo Star Gazing, the only guided hot pools and star gazing tour in New Zealand.

Well priced for family enjoyment. 3 different temperature pools and very friendly staff. We visited for the last 2 hours that they were open and nearly had the place to ourselves. A must do during your stay in Tekapo.

2 adults and a child were about $50and as they are suited for just sitting it the 6 year old got bored quite quickly. Also the pools were quite warm so you really don't want to stay in them too long. We lasted about an hour so think it was reasonably expensive. Lovely view from the upper pools of Lake Tekapo which was nice though.

We visited this place near the end of our holiday because we were so tired and worked out. I thought the entrance fee was way too expensive for what you actually got. You had to pay everything separate. The actual hot springs though were quite nice however I found it nearly impossible to find a comfortable spot where I could actually relax.

We decided to have a day relaxing on New Years Day this year. It was lovely to sit in the hot pools looking out at the view while the rain came down. However, the entry fee is very expensive, and you have to pay extra to hire a towel or get a locker. Also, when we were there the steam room and plunge pool were out of action which was disappointing. Definitely not the best hot springs that I have visited, but you can't beat the view!

These springs are in a magnificent place! 3 lovely hot pools, Great restaurant. The ice rink looks like a lot of fun and there is also a snow shoot where you come down on tires that operates all year round. Everyone was having a great time. Sorry we were pushed for time and couldn't try everything. Friendly staff. Clean and tidy facilities. I look forward to going back again and spending more time there. Makes Lake Tekapo a great place to stop over. They even pick up from all accommodation in town.
