    Our three Main Pools weave their way through the rainforest and offer a superb place to relax and rejuvenate amongst nature.


    Open daily 11am - 9pm.

    Please note: last entry to the main pools is at 8pm daily. Closed Christmas Day.

    Ranging in temperature from 36 to 40 degrees centigrade, and covered by giant sails offering protection from the elements, the pools are in perfect synergy with the environment.

    Single entry and all day pass options available.

    Our three main pools have been gifted their names by our local Maori tribe, Te Runanga o Makaawhio:

    Te Puna Mahaki: – The pool of calmness

    Te Puna Makoha: – The pool of tranquillity

    Te Puna Marino: – The pool of serenity


    Relax and rejuvenate with a Franz Josef Glacier Hot Pools signature spa therapy
