Rotoiti Water Shuttles

Hot Pools / East

Indulge in a genuine off-the-beaten-track geothermal experience.

Cruise across beautiful Lake Rotoiti to the secluded geothermal paradise at Manupirua Springs Hot Pools, accessible only by boat or floatplane.

Unique to New Zealand, this little haven has been rated one of New Zealand's best hot pool locations and is open 365 days of the year!


Soak in any of the eight hot pools, whizz down the slide and into the lake to cool off, paddle in the hot water beach, or grab a snack from the café onsite.

This 2.5-hour experience leaves daily from the VR Lake Rotorua marina at Okawa Bay.
