Natural geothermal features have always been something that Rotorua is proud of. There are geysers, hot springs and bubbling pools of mud and water abound, scattered all around the city - a facet that has earned Rotorua the moniker 'Sulphur City'. These geothermal attractions are also half the reason behind the city's tourist appeal. One such is the beautiful venue of Blue Bath Pool in the historic Government Gardens. Although it is enclosed in a pool suitable for swimming, the crystal blue water in it is fresh and geothermally heated, unlike most in-house pools' artificial mineral water.
It is among New Zealand’s most loved destinations for relaxation and rejuvenation. The bath house resembles an architectural style very close to the Art Deco that was particularly popular in the 1930s when the building was constructed, thereby exuding a charm of yesteryears very expressly. The Blue Baths are quite the heritage building and are now a beautiful venue for weddings, galas, corporate events, conferences, charity dinners and other public extravaganzas. Much of the building’s original features were preserved during the refurbishment - the multitude of open spaces for meeting, a museum gallery, the Foyer, a classic Tea Room and the Lido Lounge, which is 600 square metres room once housing the adult pool here. But the main attraction here has always been the turquoise blue bathing and swimming pools. There is one original Juvenile Pool, which is kept at a temperature of around 30°C. Two more hot soak pools are significantly warmer, at 37°C and 42°C, respectively. They are known to have healing powers and de-stress the mind and body from the grind of the daily schedule.
