The pinnacle of relaxation and comfort, Onsen Hot Pools offers total privacy and cleanliness in a breathtaking location high on the cliffs overlooking the Shotover River canyon.

Highlights

  • Idyllic private cedar-lined hot pools
  • Perched on the cliffs overlooking the Shotover River and amidst a stunning mountain range
  • A newly opened massage facility offering a high-quality boutique day spa experience
  • Private pools are heated to approx 38.3 degrees and each tub is in its own pool room with a retractable roof so you can enjoy the spectacular views no matter what the weather
  • What are you waiting for, enjoy a unique kiwi twist to a Japanese tradition!

While Queenstown is generally done at full pace, Onsen Hot Pools takes a step back to let you take in the beauty of the surroundings and simply relax.

At Onsen Pools, we are very proud of the boutique day spa experience that we provide.

Boasting idyllic private cedar-lined hot pools overlooking the Shotover River, and a newly opened massage facility, the relaxation and pampering on offer here is second to none in the region, as endorsed by our Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence for the last 3 years and our partnership with Tourism New Zealand.

Originally opened in 2007, Onsen is proudly New Zealand owned and operated, offering a unique kiwi twist to a Japanese tradition. Our private pools are heated to approx. 38.3 degrees and each tub is in its own pool room with a retractable roof so you can enjoy the spectacular views no matter what the weather.

Our natural setting is matched by the pure water captured on its endless journey between the sky and earth to continually fill and refresh the pools.

For the ultimate experience, you can also enjoy either a couples or individual massage and facial onsite.

Tandeki, the Japanesse word meaning indulgence where your pool booking comes with a selection of locally sourced New Zealand treats including Gibbston Valley wines.

    Stunning!

    Beautiful view and a nice private tub and shower. Went at 5pm, so was lucky to experience the sun and the night. Could've filled the wine glass a bit fuller ;) - was overall a wonderful experience
