Family-run and full of charm, Miranda Hot Springs offers 100-percent natural mineral pools for visitors to relax the day away. Plunge into one of the three pools, all differing in temperatures ranging from 36 to 41 C (96.8 to 105.8 F). The largest pool is the size of a big swimming pool, brimming with hot thermal mineral water and accessible by aqua lift. The children's pool is kept at a lower temperature, while the adult-only sauna pool remains the warmest. In addition, there are four private spa pools and an onsite snack bar dishing up hearty classics.

  • The hot springs are soothing and restful, especially the smaller ones tucked away. The larger pools can be busy at times, yet never overcrowded when we've visited. If you're camping nearby at one of t...  more »
  • Had not been for a while, nothing has changed. Pool and spa very nice, but facilities very shabby. Why do people cleaning toilets not clean back of doors? Back of door was filthy, as we ladies often n...  more »
  • Had a soak here before heading back to Auckland, good value for money, think we paid $28 for two adults, found out later that we could have got a discount voucher from the hotel we were staying at  more »

  • One of the oldest natural spa in Auckland, the administration is really cheap plus no time limit. They also have locker for your important items. The most important part this play is they have very good fish and chips. I think the combo is $16 if I am right. It’s really yum yum yum. Not a fancy place but its wonderful place for the family trip.
  • Firstly. Very clean. Second. Everything is organized, very professional. We were 3 familes that camped together. Loved the little cars for kids. Our kids weren't seen, just popped in to eat. Liked the fact that 10 pm it got quiet, and at 11 pm all was relatively quiet. My friend had 2 toddlers that played the whole day with bigger kids and drove on the bikes. Bikes are 5 dollars per 30 min. In my opinion it could be a bit cheaper. But then again there were some times the kids were given some free rides. The bikes are a winner. Only one warm pool, which was fine, but a second cold pool would have been awesome. One of the best places I've been to.
  • Very nice place with three hot pools. Kids friendly, reasonable priced. If you are against crowds, go there before closing time - you can enjoy quiet relaxing place.
  • Nice cool breeze blowing thru the facilities making it especially pleasant. Great for kids as a stopover if there is queues on the way back to Auckland.
  • Awesome place for the family. The fish and chips from there were 2nd to none. Thanks for the awesome day
