Hi all We’re the caretakers at Ginn’s Ngawha Spa. First, the contact phone number is 09 405 2599. We’ve been here about two years on behalf of the owners (a family trust) and should be here for another year or so. The pools have a fantastic history going back to the 1860’s, then latterly to the 40’s and 50’s when the old spa hotel beside the eight hot mineral pools operated full on. At present, no accommodation is available at the hotel as building renovations are being planned. But we are open 364 days of the year for the pools 9am to 9.30pm. Also, you can camp for just $7 per person (the price includes using the pools) or sleep in your car in the safety of the grounds for the same price. Campervans are just $8 per person per night (pools included) and if you want power, just $10pp (pools included). The pools vary in temparature between 20 degrees and 40 degrees. They are pumped daily to maintain freshness and warmth. They have natural sandy bottoms and there is volcanic mud under the steps which is fabulous to smooth on your body. All this for just $5 for pools only (adults) and $3 for the under 12’s! What a bargain. Come try this truly authentic experience. We ain’t flash, but we’re clean and neat…there’s two toilets and showers and we keep loo rolls, hand soaps and disposable hand towels right up to speed everyday. The hot, mineral laden pools will make you feel so relaxed you won’t believe it. And you will feel amazing when you finally leave the water…which is hard to do!
