What people say

"We booked our reservation for 12 pm. They have swim suits available for rent if you don't want your personal ones to smell like sulfur or get covered in mud. Be sure to sign up for the mud bath wait list in the center of the facility. Mud bath pools are limited to 20 minutes, but you're free to explore the other hot springs for however long you'd like. We paid $170 NZD for two. "
"This is NZ's only mud spa complex and not only features mud pools that have healing properties but also a cold plunge pool and hot waterfall. You can also go for a walk on the 50 acres of land through the native bush, explore hot water lakes, bubbling mud and coloured pools before relaxing in a sulphur spa overlooking the spectacular landscape."
"We didn’t have time to get here while we were in the area - but it’s on the list and was recommended! I the it would be so cool to experience the water spa and the mud spa around the same time! "
