We enjoyed the leisurely walk around the hot pools etc outside, this is something that would be good for all ages and abilities as long as you stay on the path! The paths are well maintained and clearly marked showing where you can and can't...More

I love this place. First visited 1987 after a school ski trip. I usually stop if I'm in the area. It's not flash but it's lovely. The walk around the thermal area is lovely too

It's lovely sitting in these pools, the staff are super & it's inexpensive. Sometime soon a paint refresh would enhance this great asset to Tokaanu! Thanks for having us!

Friendly staff and clean, well-maintained facilities always make this an enjoyable, relaxing post-activity occasion whenever near Turangi. Rejuvenating after the Tongariro Crossing, skiing, tramping or just plain relaxing.

Have been coming to these pools for over 30 years and in that time not much has changed. In some ways this is nice. Its not super busy, over commercialised and noisy but its also in desperate need of some renovation! Had a private pool...More

Enjoyed our time at this pool area. There are private pool rooms but we used the big communal one outside. Nice and hot, clear and relaxing. At $6 pp, good value.

My 5 star rating is based, as all of my ratings are, on what I got out of it! These thermal pools are run by the local Maori village and are worth making this a place to visit if you are passing through and especially...More
