“Lovely spa and sauna!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 24, 2014 via mobile

We dropped in to check out the spa pool and have a hot shower and it turned into the most relaxing morning. The spa pools were situated with a great view. The hosts were very accommodating and it was the perfect way to finish our holiday! Thanks!

It is not easy to give 5 stars to any business, but I have no hesitation whatsoever to give it to Waitapu springs. Not only are the owners (Serge and Mari) top quality, but the amazing breakfast and spa immediately gave an extra dimension to our stay. My first reaction to my partner was that I could easily live there. That was before I tasted the home-made bread!
Now I sincerely consider adoption. Keep up the good work and we will see you again!

We stayed one night in this wonderful place. Its a new and nicely decorated B&B where you just feel instantly at home. The breakfast buffet was amazing, with homemade bread and fresh fruit out of the garden. I would highly recommend this hidden spot!!!

Lorraine and I have just stayed with Serge and Marie at there lovely B&B. It was the first time we had stayed at a B&B so were a little nervous at first.
They made us feel so welcome and were the perfect hosts. It was no trouble at any time to have the sauna, spa and pool ready after the day out visiting the superb Golden Bay Area.
There was always a top class breakfast to set one up for the day.
We would certainly recommend this B&B to anyone...

We stayed at Waitapu Springs for a few nights in October and really enjoyed the spa & sauna during the cold and rainy days! Especially after hiking in Kahurangi national park, it was great to come back to the B&B and have a relaxing swim and sauna and a good night's sleep!

Also, nice owners and an excellent breakfast!

A very friendly family from Belgium/NZ runs this beautiful resort. Beautiful scenery, peaceful and relaxing. Nice clean rooms, great breakfast and nicely decorated living room. Shared bathroom. Recommended by i-site in Takaka. Highly recommended place to stay and relax after tramping in Abel Tasman or Heaphy Track. Excellent organic cafe down the road.

The B&B just opened a few months ago, hence everything is still new. The owners are very nice and helpful (they helped us to organize another B&B for a night as we spontaneously decided to go to Takaka one day earlier and they were already full).
The living room and kitchen area is beautiful with very nice and stylish-antique furniture. Breakfast is very good (fruit salad, cereals, egg dish, cheese, ham/salami, home made bread!). Rooms are spacious and beds comfortable (we had some sort of gel matrace). The shared shower is big. No need to say that rooms, shower and the rest is spotlessly clean.
But now comes the best: The spa area.
There is a small indoor pool and a big outdoor area with two NZ made cedern-wood whirlpool tubs, a wood fired finish sauna, a relax area with tea and coffee, all next to a nice garden with the house cat strolling around. And all new and just opened a few months ago - what a nice place!
Considering the more than reasonable pricing, this was the best accomodation on our trip.
Thanks to Serge & Marie!
