If this were a game of Family Feud and we said ‘New Zealand’ we doubt ‘Onsen Spas’ would be a winning answer.

However there is one spa that continues to pop up on our radar & is vastly becoming a recognisable New Zealand hot spot. All you need to do is look at their IG feed and do a few scrolls before you are convinced.

The Onsen Hot Pools are found in Queenstown, located high on a cliffside, allowing for spectacular views over the Shotover River canyon.

They provide a boutique day spa experience that prides itself on privacy. Providing private cedar-lined hot pools plus a newly opened massage facility.

Onsen Hot Pools can be set to up to 39.8C & are open 9-11pm, so great for those want to relax after a day on the slopes. Each pool can accommodate up to four adults and are perfect for individuals, couples, families and friends.
