Overview
Step into a haven of tranquility. Nestled among the lush native rain-forest in the heart of Franz Josef, the Glacier Hot Pools provide a truly unique setting for absolute relaxation. The pools are located in the heart of Franz Josef township and are walking distance from most accommodation. Our Private Pools are surrounded by majestic rain-forest and offer total seclusion, naturally. Your Private Pool experience includes private changing facilities with towels and complimentary entry into the Main Pools. After your 45-minute private pool experience, you can shower and change or head out to main pools. Alternatively, you are also welcome to enjoy the main pools before your private booking. The private pools were gifted their names by the local Maori tribe, Te Runanga o Makaawhio: Te Wai Whakahaumanu (reviving waters), Te Wai Whakawai (easing waters) Te Wai Taurima (tending waters). There are spa and massage treatments available onsite as well as a licensed café.

It was a rainy day and our glacier tour was cancelled so we decided to relax at the hot pools. Since there were 4 of us it made sense to take a private pool to start off with. You get 45 minutes in the private pool as well as a private shower, toilet and changing room. You also

Lovely surroundings but not a cheap option
Pretty expensive for our family of 5 to visit. It is very confusing where to pay. It is very clean and modern. Liv

Not fed by thermal springs but still a nice way to end the day. Pleasant bushy surroundings and helpful staff.

Warm pools that made me relax. Lots of space to roam or kick back and be lazy.
I recommend this for children or adults. All you need is a pair of togs and maybe goggles. A bench that tracks all

These pools are not natural. They are created but done well. You do get the impression of being in the rainforest.
