Waikite Valley Thermal Pools, Rotorua Overview

Waikite Valley Thermal Pools established in 1972 are actually a complex of 10 different pools. 'Living water' of the Te Manaroa spring can be experienced here. Te Manaroa spring is the largest single source of 100% pure boiling water in New Zealand. This water naturally laden with calcite and sulphur free comes directly from the depths of the earth.

Each pool is drained, cleaned and refilled with clean pure water daily. No, where else in New Zealand is found such a pure bathing experience. Water for the pool comes straight from the spring and is cooled to 35-38°C, before entering the pool. The 100% natural thermal water is neither chemically treated nor is it filtered or recycled back into the pools. The private spas give the visitors flexibility to control the temperature of the pools. An informative Eco-trail to the Te Manaroa spring gives an insight into the flora and fauna of the region.
