Step back in time to the 1840s to 1880s, when Rotorua was a magnet for global travellers drawn by the allure of a spectacular geothermal wonder—the Pink and White Terraces. These breath-taking silica formations, often hailed as the Eighth Wonder of the World, featured cascading pools of hot, mineral-rich water that offered the perfect setting for a rejuvenating bath.
 
Though the eruption of Mt Tarawera in 1886 buried these iconic treasures, Rotorua’s legacy as a haven for geothermal healing has remained. In 2023 the region’s abundant hot springs attracted more than 420,000 domestic and international visitors to experience Rotorua’s world-class restorative experiences.
 
Wai Ariki Hot Springs and Spa, established in 2023, offers a luxurious experience deeply rooted in Māori culture, healing practices, and manaakitanga (care). This award-winning state-of-the-art facility combines the ancient wisdom of the land with modern spa treatments to provide an unparalleled wellness journey.
 
Polynesian Spa, New Zealand’s original hot pools experience, boasts 28 hot mineral pools with either acidic or alkaline mineral hot pools, and indulgent wellness therapies. Recognised multiple times as a World Top 10 Spa by Condé Nast Traveller, it remains a testament to Rotorua’s enduring appeal.

For a unique experience, Hell’s Gate offers the only natural, therapeutic mud bath in New Zealand, promising an extraordinary blend of relaxation and healing.
 
Secret Spot Hot Tubs provides a cosy, intimate setting where you can soak in cedar hot tubs fed by pure spring water, surrounded by the natural beauty of the forest. Perfect for unwinding after a day of adventure, Secret Spot offers a serene escape from the everyday.
 
Waikite Valley Hot Pools offers a tranquil rural retreat with an array of thermal pools sourced from the largest single source of 100% pure geothermal water in New Zealand. Nestled in a lush valley, these pools provide a serene environment to relax and rejuvenate while taking in the stunning natural surroundings.
