Wairakei Terraces

All year round

The region’s only geothermal and silica bathing experience

The pools draw their healing properties from silica terraces and geothermal water, which flows 1.5 kilometres underground, delivering an unbeatable combination of geothermal and mineral water. Immerse yourself in the mineral rich, hot thermal pools, at the bottom of silica terraces. Instantly feel the silky smoothness on your skin and the warmth across your body. All the pools are adult only (14+). Add on a walk or spa treatment to complete your experience.
