Opal Hot Springs is located in Matamata, better known as Hobbiton
Located a convenient 25 minutes’ drive from the Hobbiton movie set and central to many day trip locations in the central North Island. A short drive can take you to many wonderful locations such as the highest waterfall in the North Island, Wairere Falls. Only 1 hour away from Tauranga and Hamilton, and 2 hours from the Coromandel and Auckland. Come and take in the waters in a private pool either indoors or outdoors. The outdoor option (40°C) is in a setting down by the river surrounded by native ferns and bamboo. Whether you want to book it for a group up to 30 or just for 2, it is a unique experience you won’t want to miss day or night. Relax at night looking up at the stars with the moon shining down on you. A very romantic setting. Min 2 people, as due to health and safety requirements we can’t allow visitors to soak alone.
