Located just a 90-minute drive from Christchurch and nestled in the middle of the alpine village of Hanmer Springs this popular destination offers the ultimate relaxation and wellness experience. With 22 outdoor thermal pools, 6 indoor private pools, indoor steam & sauna rooms and an award-winning day spa this is the place to relax and forget the outside world. 

The very first bath-house and thermal pool was built in 1884, their water started its journey before this time falling as rain or snow over the Hanmer ranges before sinking deep down through the greywacke being enfused with minerals and heated by the earth’s core. The water comes to the surface at over 60 degrees celsius so they need to cool it down before you can relax in their pools, the "Sulphur Pools" are their warmest at 42 degrees.

After you have soaked your body in the thermal pools for hours, they guarantee you’ll then love their extensive range of treatments at their luxury day spa where they specialise in the Vichy Rainshower Massage and the Hot Stone Massage. Whether you’re on a lengthy roadie or a day trip, build your next journey to Hanmer Springs around the complex and create new memories in this magical corner of the world.   

For a little exhilaration feel the rush of the 13.5 metre high, Conical Thrill-New Zealand's largest aquatic thrill ride. Race down the hydro-slides or take on their dizzying SuperBowl ride. Check out the thrills here...
