Lovely relaxing soak
Apr 2021 • Family
The pools are great in any weather due to their covers overhead. So nice to warm up after being out doing the quad biking. Options to hire togs/towels if you haven’t come prepared. 3 different temperature pools to suit your preference.

Relaxing
Apr 2021 • Family
The hot pools are a great way to relax and unwind after doing the heli-hike. It made fir a perfect day. They are spacious, clean and at just the right temperature. What a lovely setting in the ferns, I can imagine it would be spectacular in the rain , would definitely recommend and wish I had more time there. Thanks Franz Joseph for the great memories:)

Excellent private pools
Apr 2021 • Couples
My wife and I spent 45 minutes in a private pool. What a setting. You appear to be in a rain forest yet you are actually in the middle of Franz Josph township. The pools are unique in design and setting. You have your own private changing room and amenities. Very professionally run. A great bit of chill out time in luxury.

Lovely pools
Feb 2021 • Family
Very nice, calm pools. We were there when it was recently alert level 2 for covid. This place was so good with the change in alert levels and it was easy to follow the changes they wanted us to do, such as spacing etc. The place itself is lovely and a nice way to end the day. Good for everyone - families, couples, solo. Anyone can enjoy this place

Hots the spot!
Feb 2021 • Family
After quad biking this was a great way to treat those muscles after the abuse they suffered on the rocks!
It was quiet so we almost had the pools to ourselves. Very clean pools, friendly welcome by the reception staff.
So relaxed after that it was hard to stay awake.
Make sure you visit this facility.

Nice hot pools
Jan 2021
We used the 3 public pools. It was nice & clean. There weren’t many people there when we visited so we loved it. The showers & changing rooms were clean & spacious.

Loved the private pool
Jan 2021 • Family
Some reviews didn’t like the private pools but we thought it was a great thing to do. Not huge admittedly but you are immersed in rainforest and you have your very own changing cabana with shower and toilet plus heated floors. Definitely worth the money if you ask us. The whole complex is very good we thought. If o cane again I’d book a private pool and a massage.

Exceeded my expectations
Jan 2021 • Couples
I’m not a hot pools fan but really enjoyed my experience here. The changerooms are clean and modern, with attractive showers, hairdryers, mirrors. They ask patrons to shower before entering the pools, which is great! The 3 main pools are in a beautiful, natural setting. Lovely NZ bush surround each pool. The pools are shaped to offer some privacy. There are shade cloths which offer sun / rain protection. A staff member was present to ensure all patrons were safe, but also answer all sorts of questions. She was very pleasant and friendly. It’s a nice way to unwind at the end of a day of driving.
