This is a pool with small bays and a lot of seating around the edges of the pool. Its easy to get into/out as it is gently sloping and is consistently warm at 38 degrees. Its sheltered from the wind due to its high sides and the pool is covered with shade sails. Overall, a very modern pool which is absolutely magic especially on at night when there is steam all about! Numerous on-site activities...
Kawhia Springs (Te Puia Springs)
Kawhia Beach
After a dip in the ocean, enjoy the unusual, a warm bath. Bring your shovel to dig with. Although it is difficult to dig a pool more than about 20 cm deep, the water is pleasantly hot. Temperature varies upon location. A sulphur smell is present, but not overpowering. At the car park, sits an old changing room. A toilet is available, but tap water is not. See directions.
Waingaro Hot Springs [Reopened Apr 2016]
Waingaro Road, Waingaro
Reopened around $12 per person. Slide is only open sometimes so enquire before going with kids. bumper boats look to have closed. Reopened recently so very clean and new facilities.
Te Aroha Mineral Spas
Te Aroha Hot Springs Domain, Boundary Street, Te Aroha
Private hot tubs in clean and tastefully decorated surroundings. Silky hot soda water with adjustable temperature and optional bubbles. Reasonably priced for the quality of the spa complex. Highly recommended! Te Aroha Mineral Spas have private rooms. Each room has an ensuite and changing facility. They also offer Massage and Beauty treatments and a romance package which includes a candlelit spa for two, towels, drinks, chocolates and a teddy.
Okoroire Hot Springs Hotel
18 Sommerville Road, Okoroire, Waikato 3485
Great bush walk to the private pools which are surrounded by ferns. Listen to the birds and river while soaking in the spacious pools which are just right temperature wise. Good restaurant, homely historic hotel and enjoy a beer on the deck with the locals at the bar. Golf course across the road, what more do you need? Excellent getaway weekend location.
Opal Hot Springs and Holiday Park
Okauia Springs Road, Matamata
This is our favourite pool and camping ground we have discovered in our fine country! After reading all the reviews below, I can only assume that some people would prefer a big generic public pool with no character (and lots of lifeguards). The reason we loved this pool was for its retro quirkiness, the freedom to relax without lots of people, and of course the most amazing private pool ever. We have uploaded some...
Miranda Hot Springs
Front Miranda Road, Waitakaruru
I found the waters of Miranda to be revitalising as they flowed across my body. I felt something I have never felt before. I call it an 'awakening'. I call it pure joy.
