Rock Pools

Unlike many other commercial hot springs in New Zealand, Maruia Springs has reverted to the basics, so guests may relax and enjoy the hot pools in their natural state.

The springs offer healthy relaxation in natural surrounding no matter what the season.

In the winter the resort has a magical fairy-tale atmosphere: a light frosting of snow settles gently on the surrounding native beech forest, and steam surges in the crisp mountain air, rising towards majestic snowcapped peaks.

Spring, summer and autumn offer clear sunny days, but should it rain, listening to the steady patter of rain whilst soaking is extraordinarily soothing.
