About
Secret Spot Hot Tubs is a stone’s throw from Rotorua, hidden away in the Waipa Valley, in the heart of New Zealand’s mountain biking mecca. If you are local or a visitor to our patch of paradise, come discover your own secret spot here after your day’s adventures. You’ll find a place with great atmosphere, where you get a friendly welcome and everything is freshly created, from the new cedar reception and changing area, to the tubs, to the beer! The western red cedar handcrafted hot tubs have a lovely woody smell and naturally infuse the waters with cedar oil. The 6-foot wide tubs are great to fit your mates and family into (easily 4 people or up to 6 close friends or family), or have a nice big hot tub for just the two of you. We have twelve lovely hot tubs, so can easily accommodate any sized group.

A little piece of paradise
Awesome 45 minutes of bliss. The pools are set in the bush and each one is quite separate to the next so you feel almost like you have the place to yourselves. We went at dusk on a cold evening and thoroughly enjoyed the experience with a wine and the feeling of being at one with nature. Highly recommended.

Hot Tub Soak
Such a lovely experience. So nice to soak in the hot tub after mountain biking. The water is changed after each session, you get to relax enjoying a well deserved beverage

Hi there tonif241, Thanks for visiting, it's the perfect end to a day on the forest trails! Just to clarify for other people reading this.. The water is being changed continuously throughout your soak, up to 4 complete changes per hour, every hour, of clean, filtered and heated spring water - blissful aye! And yep, that magic tub-side button is absolute genius... best wishes, thanks again for the awesome review and rating, Carole and all of the team at Secret Spot. 🙏

Just so glad to have done this. Value plus!!
Jul 2021
The whole experience was AMAZING! Staff were super friendly and accommodating. We felt like we had found paradise and after wards felt so refreshed. Once the shrubs and bushes get more growth the privacy these tubs will be so much the better. Being able to look below to the bush and stream area was very calming and tranquil. Having water available to drink while we soaked and our coffee orders delivered was a bonus treat. Getting a combo deal with the Canopy Tours was a nice saving which was appreciated too.

Wonderful way to end our adventurous day in Rotorua!
Jul 2021
We went to Secret Spot Hot Tubs after a day at Rotorua Canopy Tours and it is a perfect way to end our day. Soaking in the hot water to sooth the muscles and bring our bodies into complete relaxation! They are family friendly, I went with my 11 and 8 year old kids and we shared a tub together.
The bathrooms design was cool with the shape of the tubs for the showers......it was rather crowded at the time we were there and we didnt have enough space for changing. Would be ideal to go when it is quieter perhaps head there on a weekday for absolute tranquility.

Hi there Katherine, This is such a great review! So pleased that you enjoyed your experience at Secret Spot, it's a perfect way to end a busy day isn't it? Yes we do get a little overcrowded in the changing rooms, hopefully we'll be able to improve that situation before too long. Thank you and kind regards, 😊 Carole and the Secret Spot team.

Hot tub in the forest
Jun 2021 • Friends
We went here on our first night in Rotorua. A beautiful place to go at night with an amazing atmosphere, very tranquil and relaxing surrounded by trees with relaxing music. We all brought a drink to have in the hot tub which was a nice addition and overall a great experience.

Tranquil & Beautiful
Being first-time visitors, we weren't sure what to expect, apart from a hot tub obviously, and what the website revealed.

On entering this place we were impressed by the small yet ample reception-come-cafe and bar area. More importantly, the young staff were friendly, welcoming, and very efficient in confirming our booking and an explanation of 'what's what' etc...

The dressing and bathrooms were beautifully clean albethey wet underfoot; surely to be expected given the place offers punters a soak in water.

As for the hot tubs, the cedar enveloped water was beautifully clear, set at a perfect temperature, and surrounded by native plantings sufficient to provide an element of privacy for each setting. Add to this the beautiful native forest within arms reach of the venue, with tui and pīwakawaka flitting about, then this place has all the ingredients to make for the perfect retreat for relaxation to soothe tired bodies.

Incidentally, the café/bar offers a great selection of craft beers, wines & non alcoholic beverages, as well as good tea, coffee, & eats.

We loved it here, and could have and would have stayed longer, and we are already planning many return visits, bringing the family with us next time.... maybe 😄

Not so Secret
Jun 2021 • Couples
The staff were absolutely lovely but if you are looking for a hidden spa pool this is not the case. We were thinking it was going to be abit hidden and in the forest and bit more secret but we were located in a pool right in front of the cafe were people could see us and we could hear everyone’s conversations and families could see us in the pool. As we got out you have to walk pass everyone eating as they stair at you. For the showers they have no doors so people that were only there for food could see you getting changed and having a shower. For me and my partner is was not the best experience as the pools are not secret they are located very close to each other. The staff were lovely but i do believe a few things could change for a better quite experience.

Hi there shamayk, So sorry, that we didn't live up to your expectations. Having been open for over a year, we now realise that some customers would prefer total privacy - unfortunately we currently can't achieve this... but we are taking steps towards separating the "hot-tubbers" and the "non-hot-tubbers'.... And are trying to evolve as the business takes us in different directions. Please also note that no-where do we state the the hot tubs are private, they are just exclusive to your group... And sorry that our name Secret Spot potentially misled you too - we are Secret from outside...entering behind the waterfall etc... I really hope that you come again to see how we develop. kind regards, Carole and the team at Secret Spot

Great value for money. Some nice touches with the water, towels and showers. Such a beautiful setting that made it that much more relaxing. Going at night on a crispy evening made the water temp in the tubs perfect. 💯% recommended!

Lovely facility!
Apr 2021
We had a lovely time! The staff member serving us in our pool had the best customer service! So professional and also great with the kids! The pools were a little warm but in cooler months they would be great. A shorter “express” soak might be a good idea - it was a little long due to the heat. Very clean facilities. We will be back. Love that you could enjoy an alcoholic beverage in the tub.

Kia Ora TogetherForever1, So pleased you enjoyed your experience, despite them being a little too warm for your liking. And true, the tubs are even more popular during the cooler months. I will pass on you great idea of an express soak to the brothers too. Thanks so much for visiting we do appreciate it. Carole, on behalf of all the Secret Spot team.
