    Hidden gem
    What a great hidden find, I was disappointed as I was not able to book in the usual onsen in town (was booked out a few months ago and had been on the waitlist with a few other places too) and stumbled across this place after weeks of research. From the point of inquiry to booking John was fast and very informative. His information was easy to follow and there are so many other extras at the hot tub that just stand out from the rest (glasses, water, umbrella, chairs and table, towels, gowns, change room, toilet and blue tooth speaker). If you have time def check out buzz stop on the same road before you come up as you can grab food and wine to bring up. I was blown away at this place. Such a secluded area and isolated from the usual hustle bustle of town. The views were amazing of coronet peak and the lake (hubby suggested changing the name to coronet peak view). We loved this place and hope to return next year! Thank you for the excellent hot tub ( was nice and toasty) - we def needed to unwind after the last few days out and about.

    Queenstown Family Holiday
    An amazing afternoon was spent by our family of 5. An easy place to find with easy directions provided by the host, John. A peaceful location, soaking in warm water and just taking in the wonderful mountain and hillside views. A very different tourist activity but we are certainly glad we did it. John (the host) communicated well and this is an activity we would recommend to try out as something unusual but very special. We would do again.

    Exceptional celebration experience
    This experience is the BEST experience ever when it comes to hot tubs. Located in a very sheltered natural environment doesn’t get any better than this. Amazing panoramic views of coronet peak, lake Johnstone and the likes. It’s an absolute must for wellness and wellbeing. It’s our second visit (1st year wedding anniversary) and we will continue to come back as we can. Can’t wait to share it with family! thanks John 😀

    The best hot tub ever
    It was one of our vest experience. John the owner was so hospitable.The hot tub had an amazing view and before we enter there was a sign of welcoming. They provide us clean towels and water bottles and bins for our rubbish. We stayed in the hot tub more than 4 hours and the owner was so patient not to kicking us out. We lost our time because it was so beautiful. Definitely back again and highly recommend. Thanks John.

    Wonderful hot tub experience with fantastic views
    Booked this as a different hot tub experience. John was fantastic in helping to organise and provided all relevant details, as well as setting up the hot tub prior to our arrival. Was treated to spectacular afternoon weather overlooking Lake Johnson and up towards Coronet Peak. Would recommend bringing some extra snacks to enjoy over 2-3 hours. Will definitely visit again next time we visit Queenstown. Thanks again!

    Loved it - don’t miss it !
    What a great experience ! We loved it, such a relaxing afternoon. The scenery is stunning, looking over the lake and towards Coronet Peak. We sat back and relaxed for 3 hours, enjoying the serenity of the place. We haven’t met John, but feel like we know him !! He was really quick to respond with details and made sure we had everything we needed. We will definitely recommend to friends and will be back again next time we are in Queenstown. Thanks John

    One of a kind experience
    I booked the hillside tub as a surprise activity for my fiancé and myself when we visited Queenstown. It was everything I hoped for and more! John left clear directions on how to find the tub. Everything we needed was left (towels, a speaker, drinking water, wine glasses). The views were absolutely stunning and we enjoyed a lovely afternoon soaking in the sunshine. HIGHLY recommend!

    Hillside relaxation to the max!
    Firstly, the experience of the hot tub was amazing…exactly what we needed after a massive 2 week holiday in north and south NZ. John was very easy to deal with via email…booking a breeze, directions and further information straight forward. We thoroughly recommend this service!!!!

My partner and I absolutely loved this experience and 100% would recommend it to anyone!! They provided refreshments, glasses, a speaker, towels and robs, and more. We were able to adjust the temperature as cool or warm as we wanted, and it was super simple. Really nicely kept, easy instructions, and easy to locate. Can’t wait to go back on our next trip to Queenstown.
Thanks for the great experience, John!
Regards,
Georga & Zac
