Waikite Valley Thermal Pools -Springs n Spa, is a unique place to go to experience the ‘Living Waters’ of Waikite Valley. Every pool is filled daily with fresh geothermal water, ensuring a pure bathing experience. Bring the family and play in the Main Splash Pool or relax in a Private Spa. With ten pools to choose from, there is something here to suit everyone. There is a range of pool temperatures from 36°C – 40°C.
Waikite Valley’s private spas look out over Waikite Valley, native bush and surrounding geothermal activity, and you can control the temperature of your individual pool.
There is also an informative Eco-Trail. Of geological and botanical interest, this educational walk leads to the spectacular Te Manaroa Spring. Along the way learn about the different fern and moss varieties that are unique to just a few geothermal areas in the southern Rotorua area.
After enjoying our unique waters and exploring the Eco-Trail, relax with an ice cream, cold drink, coffee, snack or casual meal from the ‘Pukeko in a Ponga Tree’ Cafe. The cafe has a spacious covered outdoor seating area that looks out over the pools and the valley beyond.
Adjoining the pool complex is a 20-site campground with shower, laundry and kitchen facilities. Being handy to other attractions in the area means Waikite Valley Thermal Pools and Campground is the ideal spot for those passing through travelling by van, motorhome or tenting.
