Overview

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.

Good spot to drop in on your way back from Coronet Peak. Bit pricey at $30 per person - it's just a spa bath! But gorgeous views over the Shotover make it worthwhile.

Yes, the views are great and it is fun to peel back the wall and ceiling. $20 just to have them flip a switch for the "candle light" option package was a bit of a rip-off. The candles are electric, so why the high price...More

We went on a cloudy evening so there was no view at all, but it was very relaxing in the spa. However, do remember that nearly each couple who goes in there will most probably have done the dirty in the pool. (They filter the...More

I wish we had discovered this place sooner. The private tubs overlook snowy mountains and the Shotover river. The roof can be moved back to expose a beautiful sky of stars (at night that is!). It is a little steep in price, but you won't...More

Absolutely! Sunset is around 9:30pm so you get a lot more time to take in the beautiful surroundings and sunset in the summer is always special.

Hello, I am interested in going to the pools at night with the lanterns, however do you still get to see much of the view at this time? Secondly, how far in advance does one usually have to book - we will only be in Queenstown for about three nights in August so we want to make sure we don't miss out! Kind regards, Rachel
