Forest Hot Tub Bathing Experience

Forest Hot Tub Bathing Experience


  • Soak in your own secluded cedar hot tub with fresh forest spring water
  • Complementary drinking water and tub-side drinks service
  • Enjoy a free 'Shinny Dip' foot hot tub with any beverage purchase (first come basis)

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.

What's Included?

  • 45-minute soak in your own cedar hot tub on the forest edge
  • Complementary drinking water and storage lockers
  • Free 'Shinny Dip' foot hot tub with any drinks purchase

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.
