The story behind our forest hot tubs

Hi, Keith and Eric here

Brothers, best mates, and owners of Secret Spot Hot Tubs.
We created Secret Spot because we wanted to share our experience of growing up in the great outdoors with you.
As locals, we grew up on a farm next to the Kaituna river. We have always loved getting out on adventures – white water rafting, kayaking, hunting, biking, rap jumping, exploring the bush, swimming in rivers and lakes – generally just having a great time.
At the end of each adventure, we always managed to find a hot stream in the bush or on a beach; a secret spot that only a few locals knew about where we would retell the day’s stories and share a drink and a laugh.
On a recent adventure deep in the heart of Te Urewera National Park, while canoeing the Whakatane River in torrential rain and gale force winds, we dreamt of soaking in a steaming hot tub enjoying a toasty mulled wine. So we hatched a plan to re-create the secret spot of our youth; a place that we could share with fellow adventurers and visitors to our patch of paradise.
And here we are now, Kiwi-owned, still connecting with nature and friends. We would love to share Secret Spot with you – come enjoy a relaxing soak, drinks on demand, and a peaceful forest setting with stream views, all a stone’s throw from Rotorua.
We hope to see you soon!
