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.

The view and service here was amazing but I was abit dissapointed they weren't natural rock type pools, but just warm swimming pools. But apart from that our massages were amazing and a great end to our trip.More

This is a series of outdoor pools with hot water and nice views. While we did not get to use the spa facilities, this is a basic "hot tub" turned into a "destination". I would imagine if you came for the stargazing event, it might...More

I just love hot pools. These were of a good size with lots of seating in the pools around the edges and also in the middle. Would recommend.

Visited during an unusually cold spell in mid November, the hot pools were great and thawed my freezing cold bones. A little overpriced $25 per person just to sit in a hot pool.More

This is a great spot to visit in winter and warm up! However the change rooms were pretty unsightly, and getting there via the freezing footpath was not enjoyable. It gets very busy, I would suggest a night visit.More
