“Lovely”
Review of Onsen Hot Pools

Onsen Hot Pools
Certificate of Excellence
More attraction details
Attraction details
Recommended length of visit: 1-2 hours
Owner description: While Queenstown is generally done at full pace, Onsen Hot Pools takes a step back to let you take in the beauty of the surroundings and simply relax. With uninterrupted views across the Shotover Canyon, our Cedar Hot Tubs are heated to 37.8C on warmer days and up to 39.8C during the winter and can accommodate up to four adults. Our natural setting is matched by the pure water captured on its endless journey between the sky and earth to continually fill and refresh the pools. With complimentary transport to and from Queenstown, Onsen Hot Pools is relaxation the natural way.

“Lovely”
Reviewed 23 February 2012

We had a lovely evening at the hot pools, the views were great as we're the pools,my only negative would be that if you wanted to keep the door down you would see much as the windows were really really dirty fortunately for us it was a nice night so we had the door up.

“Super relaxing and romantic, even in the rain!”
Reviewed 21 February 2012

It started to rain just as we were driving up and we were thinking that it might be a bad thing. However, I now thnk that Onsen needs to install a rain feature! The rain cooled our heads while we were in the pool and it added to the romance. We got the candlelight package and the bubbly and fruit package with the massive towels. The customer service was fantastic too.

The whole experience was awesome, I will definitely return!

“Perfect place to relax”
Reviewed 20 February 2012

We had just walked the Hollyford Track and we were looking for the perfect place to relax. Stunning views & hot water to ease the aching muscles completed the excellent experience. Would recommend this place to anyone.

“totally over priced”
Reviewed 18 February 2012

a bit misleading on the price and really for $110.00 for a couple it is not worth it...should be half the price and then it would feel a little better...my wife got a skin rash after being in the hot pools which didn't help.
