Owner description: 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.

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
