Natural thermal bathing complex

Water comes from a natural boiling spring and is cooled before entering the pools. This 100% natural thermal water is not treated with any chemicals whatsoever nor is it filtered or recycled back into the pools. The ‘Living Waters’ of Waikite Valley is the only thermal pool complex of this size in New Zealand using only natural geothermal water. Given the nature of the water we recommend that you keep your head above water when swimming. Sit and soak in the passive pool. With an average temperature of 35°-38° Celsius, it’s easy to soak away stress and worries whilst taking in the fresh country air. This pool is situated just above the main splash pool in its own area amongst native shrubbery and overlooks steamy Waikite Valley. Enjoy the pergola pool or outdoor pool. Book a private pool to control the temperature.
