Hot Pools + Aqua Play
Tekapo Springs offers three tiered Hot Pools landscaped in local greywacke rock and surrounded by the regions native alpine plants to create a natural setting. Pool temperatures range from 40 degrees Celsius to 36 degrees Celsius. The pools have benched seating so you can sit back, relax and soak. The Hot Pools are open from 10am - 9pm daily.
Our newest additions to the pool family, these refreshing, cooler pools were officially opened in December of 2015. Ranging in temperatures from 28-33 degrees celcius, these two new pools offer up a fun alternative to the warmer pools. The 130 sq metre beach-accessed pool is great for parents to sit and relax while the kids play around the 80 sq metre aqua play area with interactive water features.
