“Hot dip in style”
Reviewed 23 August 2014

Beautiful hot springs with staff to serve you poolside, cocktails, and food. Man made but very well done with lovely spa. I purchased a package which included a cocktail, cheese/meat plate, facial and entry to the pools.

“Feels like being on a tropical island”
Reviewed 7 August 2014

Wow, we were taken away to the islands, what a special time we had. Very peaceful, romantic , relaxing and warm. A lovely atmosphere due to the lush vegetation and warm pools. We had a seafood platter for 2 at the restaurant. The platter looked fantastic, and tasted just as good. All in all a wonderful evening

“"A very special 'mother & daughter' moment"”
Reviewed 6 August 2014

Fantastic place to celebrate some special mother and daughter time! We chose to have a facial and pedicure together and finished off with a very relaxed lunch. The room was blissfully warm and scented, their staff delightful and friendly & we were on first name basis with them both within moments. My feet have never felt and looked so good!!!. The menu choices for lunch were ample with a special board on offer too. Our food was fresh, full of flavour and presented well. Take the time to view the photos on the wall - they tell a story of the development of the Springs. We enjoyed a walk through the gardens before leaving - so much effort and thought. We even got to chat with the owner - nice way to finish our first visit. Next time - we will indulge in a swim! Well done everyone, we'll be back!

Today was my third visit too the lost springs..

This place is as close to Polynesia as you can get in New Zealand.. The pools and grounds are always clean and tidy.. It can be a bit pricey if your only going to be there for an hour but make a day of it - go for the works. Nothing beats a good massage. The staff are always friendly and inviting it seems theres nothing they won't do while you have a soak.

The cafe is great and the food was spot on.
