Soak it up at The Lost Spring

View the map


A geothermal oasis in the heart of Whitianga, The Lost Spring is an ideal setting for indulgence. 

The 16,000-year-old spring was discovered emerging from bedrock, 667 metres below the surface back in 1989. Since then, The Lost Spring has been transformed into a tropical sanctuary, with lush planting alongside the mineral-rich pools.  

Soak your troubles away in the picturesque pools, cocktail in hand, swim through the crystal cave set in the beautiful bush, or go for the full pampering treatment at the onsite day spa. 

With water temperatures ranging from 30°C to 41°C and pools no deeper than chest height, The Lost Spring is a comfortable and seriously relaxing spot to spend a few hours.
