“World-Class Thermal Pools, DaySpa and Dining.”
Reviewed 15 July 2009

The Lost Spring (www.thelostspring.co.nz) is absolutely beautiful and a world-class venue! Take a look at their website and you'll soon agree. Situated on the Coromandel Penninsula (a must-see destination in its own right), the Lost Spring is one of it's world class attractions.
The thermal pools are creatively located in a bush setting and are a real work of art in themselves. The whole place is so peaceful and relaxing. The staff are friendly and the service is second to none. This is a place you will absolutley love to visit.

“All hot springs should be like this”
Reviewed 13 May 2009

This place is an absolute winner. The setting is wonderful and the facilities are of the highest quality. The staff are friendly and enthusiastic.
My only minor complaint is the size of the men's changing room with its one shower. A few more seats would help too. These are inconsequential when compared to the quality and atmosphere of the place.
New Zealand is liberally sprinkled with hot pools that have been turned into nothing more than a concrete trough full of hot water. The Lost Spring has a great setting, a range of water temperatures and an exotic atmosphere. It is a destination on its own.

“The Lost Springs, Whitianga - Simply amazing!”
Reviewed 17 March 2009

When visiting Whitianga in New Zealand, I would recommend a visit to The Lost Springs. Its feature attraction is a collection of geothermally heated pools set amongst a tropical landscape. The staff are friendly and helpful, the facilities made you feel like you were in a luxury resort and the hot pools have to be seen to be believed. Having recently opened (about 4 or 5 months ago), we were lucky to be two of only 4 visitors there at the time (at night) and the privacy was very relaxing. We paid by the hour to use the hot pools, but the hourly rate was extremely good value when you consider the high standard of facilities and choice of areas to bathe. If a visit to geothermal hot pools is high on your list of priorities for your NZ trip, make sure you visit here.
