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 value for money. Never seen anything like it. No need to travel for hours and pay for flights overseas when we have this hidden oasis in our own "backyard". Cleverly and beautifully designed, this is an indulgent spa with a serene atmosphere set in lush Native landscape!
  • A friend recommended this place to relax. It looked ok from at the entrance but once we got in it is like a wonder land. It felt like there weren't many guests as the pools are spread out, super cool. You can order drinks by the pool or sit in the restaurant by the fire place to enjoy a drink.
  • Awesome place away from kids. People serving you drinks while in a pools with different temperatures. Bit pricey but worth it in my opinion.
  • This is a nice place, but I wish they had a little more variety in the pool temperatures. We went in the winter and the hot pools were nice, but the main big pool as a little chilly.
  • The hot pools are amazing. Forget the expense just come here get an all day pass and relax. Dont forget to make sure you get a bath robe
