We private spa'd first and then enjoyed a couple of hours in the big pool. Was fairly busy but still enjoyed our visit. Not a lot of shelter considering its winter...would benefit from selling coffee I think (for us city slickers :)
The pools consist of private and public pools. The private pools are time limited to 20 minutes. The public pools are not time limited so soak for as long as they are open. Can get very busy weekends and school holidays. There is also a short geothermal walk that can be done for free next to the pools.
Great to see this facility still available after all these years. First visited in 1970's after skiing on Mt Ruapehu. The nearby thermal walk is free and has lots of interest. You have a choice of private pools or a public pool. Private pools are good value price wise.
OK, these are not the most glamorous hot pools around, but well worth a visit. We've been going for 30 years or so, and stop by every time we are in the region. We would usually take a private pool.

A good clean casual family hot pool with very hot private pools. Great location when driving back from the snow on Mt Ruapehu for a hot soak!
After canooing for three days down the nearby Wanganui River, the prospect of a soak in a thermal pool was too good to ignore. The private pools are clean and spacious and only cost $10NZ for 20 minutes. They were exactly what I needed! There is a public pool as well, but time didn't allow us to check this out.... 更多
