Experience the ‘Living Waters’ of the Te Manaroa Spring. Soak away the stresses of the day in the amazing geothermal waters of the Waikite Valley.  Open 10am – 9pm



Rotorua’s Waikite Valley Thermal Pools is a natural thermal bathing complex. Water for the pools comes straight out of the Te Manaroa natural boiling spring. It is then cooled before entering the pools.

This 100% natural thermal water is not treated with any chemicals 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 100% pure natural geothermal water.

Indulge in the soft calcite-laden mineral water in temperatures of 35-38°Celsius seducing you into a total state of relaxation. Waikite Valley Thermal Pools season passes make thermal bathing a truly affordable indulgence to be enjoyed all year round.
