Owner description: Tekapo Springs has the perfect mix of exciting and relaxing activities, 364 days a year! Located in the Mackenzie Region, halfway between Christchurch & Queenstown, we have incredible views of Lake Tekapo & the mountains. Soak up the stunning views from our hot pools or chill out in the Aqua Play Area with cooler shallow & deep pools and interactive water features! Temperatures range from 27 – 38 degrees Celsius. Or try our steam & sauna rooms with cold plunge pool. Dare to ride New Zealand’s largest inflatable waterslide, the TRIPPO! At 11 metres high with 3 chutes, it provides hours of fun in summer. Indulge yourself with a massage or facial at our Day Spa with a full range of treatments designed to revitalise the body & mind. Sample the delicious menu at our café. By night, soak in the stars with Tekapo Star Gazing, New Zealand's only hot pools & stargazing experience. With the perfect mix of relaxation & recreation, Tekapo Springs is a must-do for everyone!

Time slows down soaking in one of the hot pools here. Very calm and stunning location to soak up the view. A great experience.

Had a wonderful experience at tekapo hot springs. Lovely place, so relaxing. Enjoyed after snowboarding at round hill.
Almost left something valuable in a locker. Remembered in time. I was fortunate enough that Sonia (the best employee at tepals hot springs..! :) ) was kindly able to unlock my locker for me so I could get my item (GoPro camera).

I am very thankful and grateful.

Cannot recommend this place enough.
10 stars.
Great people. Great location.

Thank you again Sonia, appreciated

Hi 324alan, thank you for taking the time to review us and for the kind words. The hot pools are beautiful and relaxing at any time of the year, but our winter and summer activities are lots of fun too! Maybe you'll get to come back and try them on another visit :)

Kind regards,
Melanie

What a great place to relax. Hot pools, sauna and even saw a hockey game. If you have never been in hot pools before, this is a must under the stars.

Hi Jesse W, thank you so much for your review! I'm glad you didn't experience too much of a wait despite the busy day! Weekends do tend to be pretty popular for the Springs, but as you say there's still space to relax and enjoy the beautiful scenery :D

Kind regards,
Melanie
