160 Arthurs Point Rd, Arthurs Point, Queenstown

While Queenstown is generally done at full pace, Onsen Hot Pools takes a step back to let you take in the beauty of the surroundings and simply relax. With uninterrupted views across the Shotover Canyon, their Cedar Hot Tubs are heated to 37.8C on warmer days and up to 39.8C during the winter and can accommodate up to four adults. Their natural setting is matched by the pure water captured on its endless journey between the sky and earth to continually fill and refresh the pools. With complimentary transport to and from Queenstown, Onsen Hot Pools is relaxation the natural way. [Provided by Onsen Hot Pools]


Shuttle Bus Collection Point:

Pick up from Bus Stop D in front of the Station Building, corner of Shotover and Camp St in central Queenstown.

They pick you up from this point 30 minutes before your hot pool booking (e.g. if your hot pool appointment is at 7pm they will pick you up at 6.30pm) and return you there afterwards.

Driving to Onsen from Queenstown:

Take Gorge Rd out towards Arthurs Point. Drive over the Edith Cavell Bridge, and past the Shotover Jet base.

Drive around the 2 sharp corners until the road begins to straighten out.

From there, climb the hill and watch for the Nugget Point Hotel on the right.

They are the next turning on the right after the hotel.

They are directly opposite the Swiss-Belresort Coronet Peak Hotel and Strike-bowl bowling alley.

Park behind The Framing Studio.

Follow the signs toward the river.

They are a 10 min drive from Central Queenstown.

Had an amazing time at Onsen Hot pools when we visited Queenstown. Lovely staff, really clean facilities and the view is breathtaking. It was a little hot for my partner and I so we had to add more cold water throughout the hour we had there. But really good that there is the option of being able to add the cold if you need. Completely private rooms which was nice.

NOT THERMAL HOTWATER! Pools are artificially heated and there is no mention of this. This listing should not be on this website; I thought this site was dedicated to thermal pools only?

It was fantastic. The staff were very nice. Great service. An amazing view of the sun setting on the snow capped mountain across the river valley. The facilities were very clean and really nice. The pool was wonderful and very private :0)

日本の温泉とはまた違う体験でした。景色が最高。夜は星空が見れるし、個室なので、日本のお風呂みたいに裸で入れます。クイーンズタウンに行ったら絶対お勧めです! Translation from Japanese to English with Google Translate: Japanese hot springs and also had a different experience. The best view. You can see the night sky, so private, like a naked bath in place in Japan. Queenstown. It is recommended to absolutely go!
