    Hot pools

    We walked around the terraces first - its probably only a ten minute walk but it was worth it and had a dip in the pools after. It was quite, and a sunny day it was beautiful. We had such a good time.

    The best hot pools in Taupo

    I appreciate the ‘No Under 14s allowed’. I am a mother and love kids, but I appreciated the sacredness that is captured in the quietness of the hot waters. I felt like the waters were healing me. The rain that thumped down only added pleasure to the entire experience. This is my new fave place in NZ so much so I will take the 2hr drive there from Hastings monthly or even fortnitely when possible to soak in these waters. You must visit! And staff were friendly. Clean premises also.

    Breathtaking everytime

    Fabulous place to visit and just soak away the worries and stress. Beautiful to look at and even better when it is only adults and 14 above allowed entry. The staff are always pleasent. Look forward to visiting again soon.

    The good and Bad about Wairakei Terraces

    This is the second time that we have the pleasure to experience the thermal pools and this time was at night time which is even better. The place es amazing and very relaxing. But is sad to see such a good place is overshadowed by the really bad and unprofessional manners of the front desk girl; who really doesn't know how to talk to customers. And sadly this is not the first time that this happen, our fist time there was also a 2 start rate experience (when it should be a 5 start) because of the same person. :)

    A perfect start to the day

    These thermal pools are absolutely wonderful. A perfect way to start the day, relaxing and invigorating. Beautiful surrounds, tranquil and peaceful. First thing in the morning we had the pool to ourselves. The staff were great. Nothing but positives here.
