The Lost Spring, Whitianga

4.5
#1 of 9 in Nature in Coromandel Peninsula
A getaway from the stress of everyday life surrounded by native bush and ocean sounds, The Lost Spring offers therapeutic natural thermal pools decorated with golden leaves and shaded with hibiscus flowers. The professional staff of the spa mix Eastern traditions with modern Western therapies. Take a soothing stroll along the pathways that wind between the pools, through tropical foliage, across a bridge, and through caves filled with rocks and crystals. The onsite restaurant offers fresh and healthy Pacifica cuisine and a view over a beautiful lagoon. Opt for a couple's massage or have a cocktail and settle back, listening to the sounds of water running from pool to pool mixed with soothing Polynesian music.

  • Amazing pools. I love going here for a relaxing or romantic day out. The staff treat you like queens. Poolside service with delish cocktails. The restaurant and facilities are very high quality with reasonable prices.
  • A really quirky jungle/ tropical themed spa with genuine thermal hot springs. Nothing too volcanic or eggy but a good variety of pools from the very hot to the pleasantly warm. It's an independent place with an individualistic vibe but all in all it is good value, friendly and well fun with decent facilities and food/ drinks.
  • The place is awesome! The water temperature is perfect, it can relax all the sore muscles. Lots of people were there when we visited. They have their own beauty products like body lotion and perfumes. I love the different scents.
  • If you're in the area this place is worth it. No one would ever know this type of place is in the area. They have done a wonderful job creating this spot. My husband and I got a couples package that included a massage, 1 and 1/2 hour swim, a mixed drink and antipasto platter for each. It is well worth the money to get a package and easy to spend a few hours of your day relaxing while you eat, drink and swim. The staff were attentive and the massage was one of the best we had on the island.
  • Beautiful place to relax. Friendly staff, lovely food. Really enjoyed the different temperature pools, allowing you to find the one best suited to the weather or your preference. Poolside service is great too. Relaxed atmosphere and shade available for those of us that can't have too much sun.
