Our Hot Tubs

Secret Spot Hot Tubs is forest bathing at its finest. Soak in your own cedar hot tub surrounded by native ferns, overlooking the stunning Whakarewarewa Forest and Puarenga Stream. Each hot tub accommodates up to six people, with drinks delivered directly to your hot tub at the push of a button. Our hot tubs provide an idyllic setting to reconnect with family, friends, and nature.

Your Rotorua hot tub experience will include a 45-minute soak, as well as complimentary cold cedar plunge tubs, a locker for your belongings and a free Shinny Dip foot hot tub. Towels, swimwear, and robes are all available for hire at reception.

Our Shinny Dips

Tired legs after your forest adventure? Grab a manuka-roasted coffee or beverage and unwind with a complementary Shinny Dip – a mini cedar hot tub for your feet.
We have eight delightful Shinny Dip foot tubs that overlook our lawn, native ferns, and Revolution Creek. They’re free with any drinks purchase and available on a first come, first serve basis.

Our Water

Our hot tubs are filled with fresh forest spring water heated to a cozy 39.9 degrees Celsius. The fresh non-geothermal water comes from a beautiful aquifer spring high in the forest and is then treated to NZ Pool Water Quality Standards with our Enviroswim treatment system. This means our water has minimal chemicals and is friendly on both our bathers and the environment.

Water in each individual hot tub is continuously filtered and refreshed during your soak. It’s ‘your’ water only – the water does not flow from tub to tub.

Our Cold Plunge Tubs

Chill out with our new ‘Brass Monkeys’ cold plunge cedar tubs. Sitting at a chilly 11 degrees Celsius, these plunge tubs are a great way to cool down during your hot soak. Hot and cold hydrotherapy is known to improve blood circulation, ease muscle tension, and reduce fatigue (great after a day on the bike!).
The Brass Monkeys plunge tubs are located between the Funky Dunk and Chill Pill hot tubs, and are complimentary with your hot tub.
