Where are the hot pools & spa?

Tekapo Springs complex is located at 6 Lake Side Drive, Lake Tekapo. This is off state highway 8. Drive alongside the lake and past the camping ground.

Can you use the hot pools, leave and then return again the same day?

Yes, a same day return pass is included to the hot pools only. (Not the winter ice rink or snow park)

Can I hire a swimsuit?

Yes, they hire swimwear for men, women and children. They also have a range of swimwear and aqua nappies for children under three years of age for retail sale.

Are towels included in the hot pool entry?

No, towels are not included but are available for hire. Hire is priced at $5.00 per item and a refundable deposit is to be paid on purchase.

Do they have a cold pool?

The new cold pool and Aqua play area opened December 2015.

Do we need to make bookings for spa treatments?

Yes, all day spa treatments require a booking. If a cancellation is advised within 6 hours of your appointment a charge equal to 50% of your treatment will be made against your credit card. If you do not arrive for your appointment your treatment will be charged in full. For extenuating circumstances which are beyond your control such as road closures, inclement weather, accident or serious health issues, Tekapo Springs Glacial Spa will refund the cancellation fee upon evidence of those circumstances.

What age is a child?

A child is aged 3 to 15 years old. Under 3 years is free of charge entry.

Do you add any chemicals to the pools?

Yes, as of the 1st of February 2015 they installed gas chlorine. The Chlorine gas works well with the Wapotec system to provide chlorine dioxide. The result is exceptionally clean water from minimal chlorine residual present in the pool water. Another benefit is that the water is visibly clean with more of a fresh taste.

Can I safely put my head under water in the pools?

Yes, the pool water is not sulphuric and is treated with gas chlorine working alongside our Wapotech filtration system, providing superior water quality.
