Weekend in Rotorua

Really good experience and relaxing after adrenaline activities. Staff very friendly. Had a late lunch at the cafe which was very much needed and reasonably priced.

Mud mud glorious mud!!!

A great experience that everyone should do when they go to Rotorua. Great price for the experience and other than the 20minites allowed in the mid bath itself, you can stay in the other pools and spas for as long as you like. Also do the Hell's Gate walk afterwards!!! Highly recommend!!

Worth a visit

We took some friends from a cruise ship docked in Tauranga and they had a great time. They were from the UK and had never experienced a mud bath before. Very well run and clean, will definitely go back
