Discover the healing powers and restorative effects of the world-famous mud baths, sulphur spas and cool plunge pool at Hell's Gate. Lather your entire body in the nutrient-rich geothermal mud, before cleansing with a soak in the sulphur spa and cool plunge pool, a truly soothing experience.

Feel invigorated with every passing moment as you feel your aches and pains wash away. As you bubble away, take in the stunning view of the geothermal reserve of Hell's Gate that lay before you.
