We recently escaped Christchurch for a night away at Mauria. We arrived early, thinking we could use the pools until 3 when check in was scheduled. When arriving at 9am, the room was available, and we were given the keys straight away! Everyone was so friendly and happy to help. The private spa’s were incredible, with windows you could open looking out onto the lightly snow covered mountains and river. The Japanese room was a highlight, as was the amazing massage we both had. Both my partner and I couldn’t talk higher of the food, especially dinner, well presented, great portions and fabulous tasting food! Ate far too much, but couldn’t resist. The outdoor thermal pools were so much more peaceful and private than some other thermal pool resorts in the South Island, and having them available 24 horus a day was ideal. Thankyou so much Mauria for such a wonderful experience, we will definately be back!
