Polynesian Spa

Hot Springs in Rotorua

A bathhouse opened at these Government Gardens springs in 1882, and people have been taking to the Poly Pools' waters ever since. The main pavilion and deluxe mineral pools (36°C to 41°C) have lake views, making for a prime sunset soak. The deluxe option offers even more picturesque rock-lined lakeside pools and includes a free locker ($5 otherwise) and towel.

Massage, mud and beauty treatments are also available.
