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.

Lovely way to end our stay. Three pools all with views in parts. Move around all of them to appreciate the mountains and forest. Friendly staff and clean grounds.

Great views from the pools. Nice adult only pool, but still not that peaceful. Could have been a little hotter.

Nice to soak in a warm pool on a cold day with the hotest being only 38°. Found it pricy at $27 per person and only 3 pools. Staff weren't particularly friendly and looked bored.If you can only afford to go to 1 hot pools...More

Hi Kiaussi, Thank you for taking the time to review Tekapo Springs. I'm disappointed to see that you've given our complex only 2 stars especially when there are a couple of inaccuracies in your review. Firstly, our hottest pool is 39 - 39.5 degrees Celsius...More

Note: adult admission, one day - $27. So first things first, this place is alright at best, but not the tranquil, ethereal experience they advertise, so bear this in mind. It is a family friendly place, so during the day there is a fun pool...More
