Our idyllic cedar-lined hot tubs have long been a highlight for Queenstown visitors and locals alike. A unique kiwi twist on a Japanese tradition, you will have exclusive use of one of our classic indoor cedar tubs for 60 minutes as you kick back, relax and enjoy your surrounds.

Ideal for individuals or groups of up to 4 people, each pool is heated to approx. 38.5 degrees. With a retractable roof your experience can go from indoor to outdoor and back again at a touch of a button!

You will also receive a complimentary drink and snacks to enjoy during your rejuvenating soak.

The view during the jacuzzi is amazing, an hour really flies by! Don’t do it if the weather is really warm, I think it must be a very amazing experience in winter.
