#4 of 17 in Things to do in Thames
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.

  • Looks really run down. No Cold pool for you to cool off in so hopefully you're able to sit in hot water for ages. Hasn't been updated since at least late 1980. Water quality was good however. Nice and clean. Overall very average hot pools but they're very cheap entry so I guess you get what you paid for.
  • Its a great place to relax! They have private spas here which I highly recommend. They have a hot chips and other nice meals available. They also have bbqs for the public to use and lots of seating areas. The staff were friendly and they are open till reasonably late. I enjoyed my visit 😊
  • 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.
  • I must be the only person who was disappointed it does what it says on the box - HOT pools -There's no warm or tepid or cooler pools, just hot! The kids were happy, though I myself like being able to have a variety between hot and cold. Even the sink and shower water were warm. However we went in the evening so as the temperature got cooler it was nice. The staff were very friendly and helpful. My skin felt amazing afterwards from the mineral water. Just a nice place to soak and relax.
