Few pointers

These pools are in a gorgeous location! They are so clean and beautifully presented. The temperature of the pools is amazing!! There are 3 pools for the kids to swim in with the pool you can jump and bomb into. However, if your children aren’t confident swimmers, under the age of 7 and height restricted be prepared to be constantly with with. Apart from the lazy river all the pools drop off in depth without any warning and there is only one area that is roped off because of the depth. Would definitely go again without children and try out the adults only area! I think the adults prices should be lowered if you are heading into the discovery pools with kids

They didn't like bookme

Lovely place. Superb staff. Only downside was the 15 minutes it took at the start when they couldn't find my booking because bookme doesn't do things right. I felt very sorry for them. They eventually just let me in and said they would follow it up themselves. Is bookme a legitimate site?

Soak Away

Awesome place and very well set up with a bit of luxury in mind, just a little to heavy on the chemicals. The changing facilities are super and spotless. Free lockers that are quite large. Very family friendly place with very friendly staff. Thanks for a wonderful experience.

Only a heated pool

Maybe just me but I expected more. Turned up and found it is just a fancy swimming pool that has solar heating. I expected nice views and a bit more up market. Drove for 1 1/2 hours each way to have a swim. Only stayed 1 hour. The hot tub was cold, so couldn't even enjoy a soak in it.

Kia ora, We're sorry to hear your experience didn't meet your expectations. In Discovery, we have two hot pools, a lazy river and a jump pool that are all heated by our solar panel array, which guests see as they drive in to our carpark. We do also have a cold plunge, which is in a round wooden tub. We value guest feedback and if you have any more that you'd like to share, please email [email protected]. Ngā mihi nui
