  • We loved the tranquil peaceful setting. It had everything we needed, was safe for the kids and the pools very fantastic. The water comes from a bore so does smell pretty pungent but you soon get over ...  more »

  • Fabulous place. Camping ground facilities are good. The pools are deep and warm/hot.
  • My partner and I were camping at Ohiwa Beach, and decided we wanted a soak in one of Awakeri's private spas. We called to book, and on offering a contact phone number, were told that they only needed a name. It was a 45min drive to the pools, but a soak was just what we needed, so we thought it was worth the trip. On arriving at the springs we gave our name at the reception, only to have the young girl grimace, and walk away to consult with an older lady. The older lady bluntly said that there was no spa for us, that all private spas had been cancelled due to some sort of incident that resulted in them running out of water. There was no apology, and even after I'd told her that we'd driven 45min to get there, she just said "well we didn't know you were from out of town". A complete waste of a 120km round trip. I would have been significantly less disgruntled if I had received some sort of apology, and felt that they would adapt their booking process to take phone numbers in the future.
  • Love this hot spring, great prices and the water is perfect!
  • I booked this for my parents a flat cabin and was told that when they got there it was disgusting they have really gone down hill with acomdation side private pools are good still but won't stay here again thanks
  • Great place to relax with family could do with a freshen up, warm showers and TV.
