Onsen Hot Pools

The ultimate way to top off a day of adrenaline or ease the muscles after a tough day skiing, biking, paddling or hiking than to sit back and take in views of Queenstown’s stunning scenery as you soak your body in an Onsen Hot Pool. This certainly is the pinnacle in relaxation and comfort in Queenstown.

The Onsen Hot Pools are all located in private rooms lined with rustic cedar and equipped with a shower as well as a changing area. Most importantly, each bathing room offers incredible views of the mountains of Queenstown. As you enjoy breathtaking views of Queenstown’s mountain landscapes and inhale the fresh, cool mountain air, your body will revel in the soothing warmth and relaxing massage of a soak in the pure waters of the private pools.

When you’ve settled in, press a button to retract the roof and the front wall so you can have unmediated views of the breathtaking alpine scenery. Embrace the magic of the night by dimming the lights and bathing by starlight. At the touch of a button, you can enclose the room once more.

Each room can take a maximum of four adults. Onsen Hot Pools offer the perfect retreat for individuals, couples and families.
