Omarama Hot Tubs

Top choice spa

in Omarama

If your legs are weary after mountain biking or hiking, or you just want to cosy up with your significant other, these private, wood-fired hot tubs could be just the ticket. Choose between a 90-minute soak in a tub (each has its own dressing room) or a two-hour session in a ‘wellness pod’, which includes a sauna.

These tubs are popular – book ahead online (last booking 8.30pm). Clothing is optional and the chemical-free glacier and snow-melt water is changed after each booking; the used water is recycled for irrigation. The concept is Japanese, but with the surrounding mountain ranges, the lakeside setting and a pristine night sky, you could only be on the South Island of NZ. Therapeutic massages (30/60/90 minutes $65/120/170) and other treatments are also available.
