  • This place was amazing, it was like being in a different world, so enjoyable with my friends the food was good and I enjoyed my massage. Raved about it to friends and now they have been

  • We visited here on a hot day...... I guess that's why it wasn't very busy, we almost had the entire place to ourselves! The pools were amazing, the only slight negative was that my cocktail wasn't up ...  more »

  • Expensive but relaxing. Nice to be able to have a drink in the pool. They used to have a time limit of 30 minutes which was horrible but now you can get 90 minutes and they give you some extra time as well. So it is 100% better than it was.
  • It's actually a really good experience.. Although new to New Zealand and travelling..I was like " oh here we hos other commercialised siring" yes it cost to enjoy..but it's set out nicely..you can pay for a 90 min soak or you can all our 100's of dollars and go the full experience ...be served by poolside with cocktails the list goes on.. But it's nice..neat and enjoyable..Also Romantic xx
  • Went here yesterday; same-day booking was great and very quick. Had a 30min massage along with my mother; attended by Kana and Jocelyn - they are VERY talented and made us feel very relaxed. Bought an all-day pass to the pools, which was AMAZING. Even though there are only three pools, (cold, warm, hot) it's well worth it. Layout is like a little tropical resort in Fiji with music and even a little bar where you can order drinks and they bring them to you poolside. Provided with a warm robe and a locker. If you're looking for a time recommendation: go at night, 6pm+. When the weather is chilly, sitting in a steaming pool is awesome and you can see the stars. Although it might seem quite pricy, it is definitely worth the spend; great place to visit and we'll be returning again!
  • Great escape for short weekend. Wonderful experience, kind staffs n tasty dishes, will come back again...
  • Great relaxing spot to visit. Make sure you allow time to fully unwind. The massages are really good and they even deliver drinks to you in the pool. Beautifully presented.
