Wairakei terrace pools

A wonderful relaxing day out soaking in these mineral rich pools. There pools are beautiful. Constantly being warmed by the piping hot spring water. The intense blue of the pools and the steam make this experience magical.

It’s great experience for everyone in the family!

It’s clean, quite, and claim bathing environment for adults that is over 14 years old. The adults definitely could find some peaceful and relaxing here! For the kids, they could explore the trail and Maori village nearby. The whole trail is very easy for all age groups. The Maori village is very quiet and plenty to see and explore. My kids loved it and took three rounds before they got tired! The only cons is that the water is different from the Polynesian Spa. Based on the feedback from my group, they didn’t got the feeling of smooth touching on their skin after bathing, the water is a bit more like regular house bath water. However We could see the water is directly from the geyser, maybe just different minerals.
