“Wee gem”
Reviewed September 30, 2013

Who would have known this wee gem was tucked in behind the Te Aroha i-SITE. Passed through Te Aroha over new year and didn't even bother to stop but this trip I'm glad I did. The warm waters of the mineral spa were beautiful and soft making your skin feel revitalized and fresh.
Highly recommend diverting your trip and make time for a wee dip in the spa.

“Great time out!”
Reviewed August 22, 2013

We had the romantic package for couples which included an hour in the private hot tub with chocolate and candles, then a half hour massage each. It was Great!
We were there in the afternoon and think it would be more special in the evening as the candles and atmosphere would be more magical.

“You're in control.”
Reviewed July 25, 2013 via mobile

A nice example of spa pools. What stood out for me was the way you could control the temperature and bubbles. Reasonable prices, a nice place to visit.

This place is amazing, maybe a little expensive but its awesome and i think its worth the money. Your own private spa with temperature control and a bathroom. Your skin feels absolutely amazing after the spa here and each time they clean the hot tub water out. The best part is that the water is natural and is really good for your skin. Take the time to travel to Te Aroha and try out these spas! They are also great after climbing up Mt Te Aroha too.

“The place to soak in a relaxing hot tub”
Reviewed June 6, 2013

It's hard to find places where you can go to and enjoy sitting in a hot tub with your family/partner without having to worry about other people, but this place is pretty good considering that I have experienced living in a country where hot springs/pools are very common.

We made reservations here to secure a time to use the spa, as we reviewed some good feedback about the place. I found it a bit difficult to get through to speak with someone on the phone when making my booking but at least they had voice mail where you can leave a message and have someone call back.

The staff were friendly and the facilities were reasonably clean. There is a waiting area at the reception if you arrive early with couches for you to sit on until it:s your turn.

We were guided to our private room with the wooden tub, where you have your own personal shower space, toilet (although separated by shower curtains), a sink and a small bench to put your belongings on.

After locking the door, we showered and got into the tub which was heavenly! There are levers to control how hot or cold you want your water to be and also a button to push if you want the jacuzzi experience. The quality of the water was really good, nothing like the chlorine smell you get from places that pump water from the tap.

The staff buzzed us 10mins before our time was up to let us know we had to vacate soon, so we quickly got dressed and helped ourselves to the free water dispenser.

After this we had already pre-arranged a head scalp massage and finished off our experience here this way.

Would definitely come back again as a stop over to finish off the day with a relaxing spa.

One thing you might want to note is the parking can be challenging if you come during the peak times, but otherwise there should be sufficient parking on the road side which would take about 5mins to walk to the spa area.
