Franz Josef Glacier Hot Pools - Main Pool Entry

Step into a haven of tranquillity at Franz Josef Glacier Hot Pools...

Nestled among the lush native rainforest in the heart of Franz Josef, the Glacier Hot Pools provide a truly unique setting for absolute relaxation.

The West Coast is known for its water which brings life to the rainforest and shapes the surrounding landscape. This ample natural resource has been harnessed to create an experience that revives your tinana (body), hinengaro (mind) and wairua (spirit).

On offer are three main hot pools of varying temperatures, along with three secluded private pools, spa and massage treatments and a licensed café.

The pools are located in the heart of Franz Josef township at 63 Cron Street, and are walking distance from most accommodation. Franz Josef is a two hour drive from Greymouth, six hours from Christchurch and five hours from Queenstown.

Adult $29.00
Child $25.00

Absolutely wonderful!

Such a relaxing beautiful experience - we had a long day walking to see the glacier so this was the perfect place to come afterwards, then we headed down the road for pizza for tea - was a perfect day, cant wait to go back!

Great place for a break. Nice having 3 pools to choose from so you get a temperature that suits you.

A bit disappointing

Three small pools 36, 38 and 40 degrees, you can only sit at the side, not too comfortable. No drinks inside, can only leave and come back with a day-pass. Nothing to sit and rest around the pools except some uncomfortable benches.

Kia Ora Edwin, Thank you for your review on Bookme. We are sorry to hear you did not have the best experience here at the Glacier Hot Pools. We take great pride in the three pools we have and the setting they are in, however we are always considering new options for the facility. We will take all of your feedback on board. Ngā mihi (Kind Regards), Aimee

Relaxing Hot pools

The 3 pools are relaxing and there was enough space to find secluded spots but you were always aware of other people around you. I would have given more stars but the woman at the front desk was unfriendly and you aren't informed you need to pay an extra $5 for a towel and $2 for a locker. Non refundable. I think if I had paid full price I would have been disappointed.

Kia Ora Judy, Thank you for your review. It is great to hear you had a relaxing time in the Main Pools, perhaps if you were wanting a little more privacy a Private Pool would be a better option for next time, which includes towels. We are sorry to hear that the customer service did not meet your expectations at this time. Thanks again for your feedback and Safe Travels. Ngā mihi (Kind Regards), Aimee
