“Super relaxing and romantic, even in the rain!” 5 of 5 bubbles

Attraction details
Owner description: Immerse yourself in the views, the pure waters, and the fresh mountain air, as your mind and body surrenders to the deep penetrating warmth and gentle massage of our private pools. Housed in cedar-lined bathing rooms, complete with shower, changing area, breathtaking mountain views, and unique picture-windows that retract into the roof at the touch of a button. At night dim the lights and watch the southern constellations wheel past overhead!

“Super relaxing and romantic, even in the rain!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 February 2012

It started to rain just as we were driving up and we were thinking that it might be a bad thing. However, I now thnk that Onsen needs to install a rain feature! The rain cooled our heads while we were in the pool and it added to the romance. We got the candlelight package and the bubbly and fruit package with the massive towels. The customer service was fantastic too.

The whole experience was awesome, I will definitely return!

“Perfect place to relax”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 February 2012

We had just walked the Hollyford Track and we were looking for the perfect place to relax. Stunning views & hot water to ease the aching muscles completed the excellent experience. Would recommend this place to anyone.

“totally over priced”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 February 2012

a bit misleading on the price and really for $110.00 for a couple it is not worth it...should be half the price and then it would feel a little better...my wife got a skin rash after being in the hot pools which didn't help.

“WOW! One of the highlights of our trip”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 February 2012

Onsen hot pools are a must visit for everyone! So wonderfully relaxing, you feel as though you are a world away from everywhere. I could sit there all day & look at the fabulous views from the tub. Best $40 I've ever spent!
