Pool & Beach (4)


Athenree Hot Springs & Holiday Park is your family park of choice. Located in New Zealand's sunny Bay of Plenty region, at the northern end of Tauranga Harbour. Our all-season Athenree accommodation has a tranquil, park setting with magnificent mature Puriri trees and an abundance of native birds. Great memories are created and a relaxing holiday for the whole family is guaranteed! There are many activities in the area and we offer several great accommodation options for you to choose from. We have spacious 2-bedroom Motel Units and Deluxe Chalets available (each with Freeview and SKY TV), also standard cabins (share park facilities) and we certainly don't compromise on space for camping with our range of tent and campervan sites. Thermal Mineral Pools Staying guests are free to enjoy our two natural mineral pools. The pure thermal water feels silky and soft on the skin and are perfect for relaxing in after a long day sightseeing. There is a continuous flow of spring water in the pools, creating bubbles to help soothe away any aches. Our new mosaic artwork within the pool area has created quite a buzz among our guests. Both pools are drained and thoroughly cleaned daily so you can be guaranteed a special experience in our chemical free pools.

We only stayed here for 1 night & loved the hot pools and vicinities. Great hosts, helped us out - we were missing a cable for our camper fridge & they went out of their way to look for one & then gave us one to have! :) great place to stay!

Having lived in this area for a few years and having tried almost all of the other hot pools around (Tauranga's the best by miles IMO) we decided to check out Athenree hot springs. I parked the car and went to the pools whilst my 14 year old autistic nephew went to the toilets.

Crikey, that's a bit harsh! As a team we reviewed this incident a couple of months ago when it happened, and this is not how we (or our CCTV network) recall any of the events. Our managers (not owners) receive a lot of guidance for dealing with difficult guests but this event had them quite upset, and now with this review we need to set a few facts straight. You both used our guest facilities when advised public toilets were just outside our entrance. At no time did they even talk to your nephew or use the language you describe. You were the the confrontational one and we do not appreciate your abuse at the time (and now disgusting descriptions) toward any of our team. We are proud of the way we operate our lovely Park and Pools and look forward to delighting many guests and swimmers over the coming festive season.

This would be the cleanest holiday park in NZ and the staff so helpful and friendly. The hot pools are so clean and the water is changed daily. There is safe swimming at high tide and is very safe for children. Great place to stay😎

Thanks for the great comments! Nice to know our clean and tidy little piece of paradise is appreciated. Both guests and the public are welcome in our pools and everyone pays. We let guests use the pools first everyday, and this works well. Thanks again for taking time to comment.
