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.

  • On our last trip, we again enjoyed the spring and a great afternoon snack by the pool with a cool beer but it was busy.  more »
  • Absolute moment of relaxation! With different water temperatures, very nice. Beautiful, romantic setting for couples. We had fun looking for precious stones... Very clean rooms and friendly staff.

  • 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!
  • Love coming here. It's always luxurious. The prices are a little up there so it has to remain an infrequent treat rather than a regular activity. Loved that we could dine poolside, literally!
  • This place has 3 pools. Hot medium and cold pools. There seems to be enough room and seating for all who visit and I appreciated the fact that is wasn't completely busy. You can order poolside which is a plus. They provide lockers and a changing rooms for each gender. We did not try spa due to booking schedule but I'm sure that would be good too.
  • Simply outstanding! A lovely little hide away that transports you to paradise. The staff are so friendly and helpful and the hot stone massage I had was bliss. Would definitely recommend!
  • Gorgeous, one really hot pool. Went here after a long weekend of hiking and camping - super relaxing. Very much a couples destination. $40 for the pool but everything else seemed quite over priced. ** the gate closes before the spa closes so if your getting picked up, your ride won't be able to get in.
