The Lost Spring, Whitianga

4.5
#1 of 8 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.

  • This was our second time to the Lost Spring and it just gets better - it was mid-week and out of season so very quiet, which made for a much more chilled experience. A swim in the pools followed by a ...  more »

  • So beautiful and romantic lovely crystals in caves such friendly staff. The cave was stunning took amazing photos we went at a time not many people would go so had a favtastic time running from Area to area testing the waters. They even bring your food and gorgeous cocktails to you in the water. The good is so lovely and the surroundings with trees and plants makes this place a little treasure. Great areas to get dressed shower hairdryers etc,and a cafe on the grounds too. Would love to go back soon.
  • Recommend you go there for a weekend relaxation get the works may be a bit expensive but you only live once. The massage was the best, the platter they served up was very nice and the variety was good. Pool was quiet relaxing.
  • A wonderful, relaxing day with both my husband and son. Soaking in the thermal waters, in a tropical setting (my son said he felt like he was at a Hawaiian resort), while enjoying a cocktail and platter was such a great, unique experience but I have to say that the outstanding part for me was the back massage! Gina is a genius at massage! I have never experienced one even close to whole back massage that she gave me, absolutely perfect pressure and so thorough and professional and she provided such a relaxing atmosphere. I can't wait to go back, and a repeat massage with Gina is definitely on my itinerary!
  • A tropical paradise located in the heart of Whitianga. The place to be if you are in need of a quick escape or a relaxing day away. - Geo-thermal pools - Day Spa - Licensed Restaurant - Happy Hour on a Friday night - Sunday Roast The opportunities are endless. Such and amazing place and well worth a visit.
  • Definitely worth a visit! Try the mussels while you're at it. It was not too busy in the middle of the week in August, so no fighting for the best spots
