Hot Pools

Relax and rejuvenate with a hot soak

 
Visitors have been flocking to Rotorua’s thermal waters since the mid-19th century to bathe in the hot pools along the edge of Lake Rotorua. The geothermally heated water was hailed for its healing properties and touted as a cure for ailments such as arthritis and rheumatism.
 
We’re no experts when it comes to medical facts and advice, but we do know a good hot soak can do wonders for achy muscles, stressed-out bodies and a weary soul. Or, just because – who needs an excuse to justify this luxurious experience?
 
There are many ways to make use of the variety of hot pools in Rotorua. Treat yourself with a private spa pool in your room at one of our many accommodation providers, enjoy a lakeside hot pool or use the free footbath in the city centre. Along the edge of town, and in more rural areas, options include freshwater hot tubs, natural hot water beaches, and mineral pools.
