Terraces Walkway

The Terraces Walkway showcases the geothermal energy and Māori cultural of the region. The walkway includes a recreation of the famous pink and white terraces of Tarawera.

Thermal Bathing Pools

The natural thermal pools are guaranteed to nourish and moisturise the skin. The mineral enriched water has been drawn to the earth’s surface from 1.5 km underground. The natural setting is ideal for total rest and relaxation. Pool temperatures vary between 35-42 degrees.

Massage Therapy

Massage conveys a sense of caring and a loving touch of the heart expressed through the hands. Massage helps the body’s own natural healing abilities.
