Gorgeous setting amongst a natural forest setting. Private pools and a main pool to choose from. Not a large complex, so perfect if you don't like crowds! Pools were a perfect temperature to enable you to stay soaking for a reasonable amount of time. Looked to be a lovely spot to visit during the day also, with picnic tables and... More

Natural mineral hot water baths which are emptied and cleaned every day. Water comes in through 3 natural hot water jets, which are too hot to put your feet in at the point of entry at the base. Extremely warm, but not uncomfortably hot. Very relaxing. I floated back and forwards over the jets for part of the time and... More

This is one of Tauranga's best attractions. Friendly, helpful staff. You will feel revived after a good soak in the main pool. Nothing is added to the pure water. A peaceful haven among the giant ferns. The smaller spa pools are excellent too, but not available for solo visitors. Do bring some casual shoes to wear to the poolside, especially... More

After staying at Mount Maunganui we decided to have quiet night and fernland spa was the perfect spot. Had a spa a massage and an overnight powered site all at a good price. Very quiet and relaxing. The gates close at 10.30pm so if you're planning a night out maybe not the spot for you. Close to Mills Reef Winery

Thank you for your review. We do have an automatic gate so campers can come and go, my wonderful staff may have forgotten to explain this as it is a new addition. Hope we see you another time soon. Kind regards Wendy More

Clean, large pool that was great for a relaxing soak. Female host was very friendly. Only hot water in the male shower which made showering a bit unpleasant. Would be great to have free pump soap/shampoo available. For $12 per adult, felt it was a bargain :)

Visited the spa after a day climbing up the mountain. The mineral spring pool was a great way to relax, spent about an hour in the pool and for a majority of the time in the late afternoon it was just the two of us. The spa also has private room spas of different temperatures great if you are looking... More

Usually a great spot for quiet soak but unfortunately we turned up on a Saturday afternoon and the main pool was closed for renovations! Thankfully the lady popped us in a private pool which was good but just disappointed they were doing some painting during holiday season, I guess maybe people don't use hot spas in summer!

Hi , Thank you for your feedback. We have a annual pool painting procedure to keep our pool in peak condition and usually aim for the first week the school holidays finish as it causes the less about of disruption as we are generally quiet at that time. I'm sorry you missed out on the main pool but please visit... More

We visited Fernland just yesterday and we really loved the experience. The resort is nicely laid out with native ferns surrounding the pool area! The water is 100% pure mineral water which gets cleaned and renewed every day and it is surprisingly very hot! It was a wonderful place to come to for relaxation, felt very goof for your muscles...
