While Queenstown is generally done at full pace, Onsen Hot Pools takes a step back to let you take in the beauty of the surroundings and simply relax. With uninterrupted views across the Shotover Canyon, our Cedar Hot Tubs are heated to 37.8C on warmer days and up to 39.8C during the winter and can accommodate up to four adults. Our natural setting is matched by the pure water captured on its endless journey between the sky and earth to continually fill and refresh the pools. With complimentary transport to and from Queenstown, Onsen Hot Pools is relaxation the natural way.

Wow, did I enjoy that. If you're a long lazy hot bath person (or even if you're not) then this is the definitive experience for you. A more sublimely relaxing dip you couldn't wish to take. The place itself affords magnificent views across a river valley to mountains and the electric windows mean you can just about make it an... More

The complex is brand new and very clean and tidy, the hot pools themselves are a wooden tub in your own room.You get the tub and shower changing area and book in increments of one hour. The pools overlook the... More

These pools opened in August 07 and do not seem to be very well known or promoted. We saw an ad in one of the local guide books. Pools are located 10 - 15 mins out of Queenstown and they have a free shuttle bus that picks up at "The Station" which is in central Queenstown. The complex consists of... More
