Overview
More
Located in beautiful Lake Tekapo, Tekapo Springs is a must-do for everyone, with a fun mix of relaxing and exciting activities. Soak in the stunning views from one of our 3 hot pools (36 - 39 degrees Celsius), all beautifully landscaped with native plants. Relax in our Steam & Sauna rooms and try the cold plunge pool. Children (and the young at heart!) love our Aqua Play Area with exciting interactive water features and shallow pool for playing in. There's a deep pool for swimming a few laps or jumping off the side. In summer, dare to ride the TRIPPO, an 11 metre high waterslide with three chutes providing hours of fun! In winter, get fit and have fun on our outdoor ice skating rink or try the thrilling 150-metre Snow Tube! Soak up some “me time” with a revitalising facial or massage at the Day Spa then sample the scrumptious menu at our fully licensed cafe. By night, Soak in the Stars with Tekapo Star Gazing, the only guided hot pools and star gazing tour in New Zealand.

What a beautiful location, sit in the hot springs and view the snow capped mountains. Three different temperature pools. Even if it’s snowing you’ll love it! And don’t forget to use the ‘tog dryer’ in the change rooms to spin the water of your swimming...More

We visited with our nearly 2 year old and were surprised at how relaxed we were even with him running around. The coolest hot pool was a little warmer than his learn-to-swim pool at home and the step/seat was the perfect height for him to...More
