About
As far back as 500BC, Hippocrates recognised the benefits of warmed seawater for its ability to rebalance and detoxify our bodies. Salt water bathing was believed to improve mobility by easing muscle and joint inflammation, and general aches and pains. Today, those healing properties remain, and it’s all right here beneath the majesty of Mauao, Mount Maunganui. Come and soak in our heated salt water pools and experience the benefits for yourself. Top it off with a massage from our friendly and experienced therapists to really treat your body.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

After a trek up to the top of Mount Maunganui, it was very nice to relax in the hot pools. We liked the option of using an “adult only” pool (there were two) and liked the variety of pools available. Definitely recommend!

What a fantastic place to visit. Immaculately clean hot sea water pools (treated with chlorine). We thoroughly enjoyed our time there this morning. Spotlessly clean change rooms, friendly staff, what pleasant visit. Over the past 13 years we have visited this pool many times, and it never disappoints. Onsite parking is also available.

I had a lovely massage with Vivian. However, I booked for two people in error and there was no refund or possibility to use at another time. Really unfair for an honest mistake. I will not go back

Just lovely! We popped in over the weekend. What a lovely place! We had a Private Pool which was perfect, the perfect temperature, setup, vibe, so worth it, and the Public Pools are epic! Friendly for people of all ages to have fun or just chill. Neza at Reception was lovely and Jessica who we arranged our experience through was so professional and friendly. We highly recommend coming along to Mount Hot Pools!

A great place to relax. Clean facilities. The private pool was worth doing. The different temperature pools were good and some shade helped over each pool.

Hi Didee Thank you for your review. We are often reviewed on the beautiful views of Mauao. Possibly if you visited on a wet day the Mountain was shrouded in cloud Best regards Mount Hot Pools Team

Himself and I, after climbing Mount Manganui decided to try the Mount Hot Pools. We were not disappointed! Temps range between 31 and 37 degrees Celsius and really helped those aching muscles. Highly recommend!
