Thoroughly enjoyed our hot pool experience here. So worth the money, the views are spectacular and so relaxing. After a week of travelling NZ in a motorhome it was just what we needed.

We spent a really good moment in our private hot pool, enjoying the view with a glass of wine. Definitely something you’ll enjoy to relax after a day spent hicking around this beautiful area.

A truly relaxing experience. A few problems though - their website doesn't say what each 'package' contains, so I booked the indulgence package and also chose to pay for hire towels. Turns out the package includes towels, so on arrival I had paid for towels twice. They offered me extra beverages or ice cream instead of a refund. I also found the staff to be quite abrupt (but not impolite) and their voices, volume and tone not in keeping with the tone of the experience. The waiting area is shabby. We were also shown to our pool room 5 minutes late with no offer of extra time at the end to compensate. Remember you still have to undress and take a shower before you can hop in and start enjoyed the tub. Luckily 50 minutes in the tub is enough as it's very hot! The tubs and rooms themselves are AWESOME.

They are a little on the pricey side but the view is magical and it is super relaxing - and romantic - on a cool night.

Set just outside of the city, it is calm, peaceful and tranquil. The staff were so friendly and the cleanliness of the facility made for a great experience.

Pools and views awesome, staff rude, not relaxing at all, the cleaning team was already waiting for us in front of the door. Reception lady seemed to be in a rush.

I went to the hot pools with my husband and we bought the romance package - a lot of the extra cost is for "candles" which are actually just little lights that look and flicker like candles, so the big cost difference is from the flick of a light switch. Aside from that it was a great experience -- very clean and private, and a really nice view from the big door that you can open up into the scenery.

Wonderful!! We were on our honeymoon and booked this at quite short notice for the full works ie. pamper pack and candles. While we did not get to enjoy the views as such the night sky was amazing!! Would definitely do this again. A great way to finish off a long day after doing the Doubtful Sound cruise.
