We had a blast here! We got to watch the bubbling mud pools and bathing in them was fun as well. The actually heated pools aren't too hot but make for an enjoyable experienced. All in all we were really satisfied.
If you want to experience everything the combo is worth it. You can join the guided tour at 9.30am, our tour guide (I think his name was Paul) was amazing, he was so knowledgeable and made the walk around the park that much better. The...More
The combo is a great option as you get to explore the fascinating park with bubbling pools of mud and steaming sulphur pools, then relax in the mud and sulphur baths. Small shop and restaurant onsite too.
My partner and I purchased the the Mud spa package which included the geothermal walk through the park. This hot springs experience is different to any other hot springs you will visit as it is quite unique to walk through the park and see the...More
We did the Combo of bushwalk, mud bath and sulphuric pools. Bushwalk I enjoyed, the moss growing on the trees looks great, I have never seen that anywhere before. And the boiling mud pools are quite amazing. The mud bath was ok, I would recommend...More
Took a guided walk around the park which is well,worth doing to get some very interesting facts. (Do not stray off the paths is the best advice ever). The spa itself is well worth doing and the showers etc are private (and necessary). The sulphur...More

To walk around the park you don't need to book. The guided tour is good but you need to book. If you want a mud bath/sulphur pool I recommend you book as well. June is NZ's Winter season so it could be quiet in the mud/pools/ booking department. So you could be lucky winging it. The reserve is on private land and so I find it less busy and not as overwhelming like the other geothermal company/tours. Hope you have a good time. P.s You'll get use to the smell... I hope. 😂
