    The lakefront area is getting a makeover, with a new boardwalk being laid down. But the already completed part was there and make an early morning walk really enjoyable.

    Excellent spot to relax and enjoy the wonders of nature. The water is warm, and the waterfalls are pretty.
    Well sign posted and only a small part of the entrance is gravel. Clean and tidy area.

    Yesterday I had a soak in the pool prior to having a massage.
    The pool was very hot, gresat after a cold day outside in Rotorua. Didn't take long to warm up at all!
    I had a massage, facial package. I couldn't recommend this more. One of the best massages I have ever had. Just perfect and so relaxing.
    The pool area and the massage rooms are relaxing and peaceful. Can't wait to go again.
