So, what will you experience at Secret Spot?

We like to keep things simple – you book an hour of secluded hot tub time (45 minutes of soak time and 15 minutes for getting in and out).

You get your own tub for your party, no interruptions or rowdy swimmers with you – great! Our 12 tubs are secluded and set outside amongst the tree ferns, with optional umbrellas over the tub to shade you from the sun or rain. At night you soak in a magical setting of lanterns amongst the beautifully lit surrounding native bush.

Oh, and what goes well with a hot tub soak after a big day’s adventure? A nice cold craft beer or cider or refreshing beverage of your choice.

Just like a journey to our favourite hot stream in the bush, we’ve built in lots of cool little surprises for you to discover on your visit to Secret Spot.

After showering and changing in our brand-new cedar facilities, and picking up your flax kete (basket) with craft beverage of your choice, you head down the boardwalk through the ferns to find your secluded hot tub next to the Waipa stream. Relax, share the stories from your day’s adventures, and connect with nature.

We have complimentary lockers to secure your gear, and mountain bikers are welcome to bring in the bikes – we know how you can’t bear to be parted from them.

After your soak, lounge a little longer on our veranda and boardwalk area where you can enjoy a bite to eat, an ice cream, or a post-soak beverage while you check out your day’s Go-Pro clips.

We are open between 9am and 10pm in the Waipa Valley, at the Whakarewarewa Forest Mountain Biking car park which is a short 2-minute drive south of Rotorua in the Waipa Valley.

For those of you who don’t feel like a full-on hot tub soak, grab a fresh-brewed coffee or beverage and have a complimentary “shinny dip” – sit back and soak those tired legs in our awesome mini cedar hot tubs on the boardwalk.

It’s important to book ahead so we can have a hot tub with your name on it when you arrive. A good idea is to book before you go for your mountain bike ride or walk in the Whakarewarewa Forest, and then you can slip into the hot tub when you come back to the carpark.

Towels and swimwear are available for hire ($5), because we love spur-of-the-moment decisions to have a hot soak.
