Enjoy a soak in your own cedar hot tub, hidden amongst the native trees in the heart of New Zealand's mountain biking mecca, the Waipa Valley. Immerse yourself in the soothing sounds of the forest and enjoy tub-side bar service with drinks brought to you at the push of a button.
Situated on the edge of the stunning Whakarewarewa Forest, 12 natural cedar hot tubs await your arrival. Your adventure begins the moment you enter the front door, beneath our rooftop waterfall. You'll shower and change in first-class facilities before meandering along the forest boardwalk to your very own hot tub, perfectly placed next to the Puarenga Stream. Relax in fresh spring water heated to a cosy 39.9 degrees Celsius. The hot tubs can accommodate up to six people per tub, making them ideal for families, friends, or a spacious retreat for two. Stay a while and explore our unique café and bar, play lawn games, and enjoy our outdoor campfires, or unwind with a ‘Shinny Dip’ foot hot tub, free with any drinks purchase. Whether you're a local or visitor to our patch of paradise, you'll find your own secret spot to relax in after your day's adventures.
Maximum of six bathers per tub (adult and children).
Bring your own swimwear and towels or rent them from reception.
This experience takes place a stone's throw from Rotorua, about a two minute drive south on State highway 5 from Te Puia, 300m down Waipa State Mill Road at the Mountain Bike Car Park. We are signposted from the State Highway 2 turnoff and are located between the car park and the forest.
RedBalloon is your one-stop shop for experiences and curated gifts. We’re so confident you’ll love what you get from us, we’re offering this promise to you…
We want you to have the most enriching experience possible, so if this means swapping your jet boat experience for wine tasting then we’ve got you covered. Simply exchange online or contact our Customer Experience Team and we’ll do the work for you.
Not only do we handpick the best experiences for you, we also guarantee you’ll pay the same as you would buying direct from the experience provider. If you find the same experience advertised at a lower standard price on the same day by the same provider, simply take a screenshot of the experience advertised at the lower price and tell us within 30 days of your purchase and we’ll match it.
We understand life gets busy, which is why all vouchers and gift cards purchased have a 5-year expiry. The only exception to our expiry terms is if the experience has already been booked in. We honour the purchase price of our experiences for 18 months. If you book your experience after this time and the price of the experience increases you can either pay the difference or exchange it for another experience free of charge.
We know the trust consumers place in ratings and reviews is tied directly to authenticity. That’s why we use Bazaarvoice. We believe that reviews should represent the genuine, unbiased, and transparent opinion about the author’s experience with a product or service. Reviews are not altered in any way by anyone other than the original author — including corrections for spelling or grammar. Reviews are not filtered, edited, or deleted simply because they are negative or are lower-rated.
The RedBalloon Price Guarantee does not apply to experiences involving accommodation or Experience Providers' own conditional sales.
