Polynesian Spa, Rotorua

Polynesian Spa Introduction

While overlooking Lake Rotorua, relax and unwind in the hot mineral pools at Polynesian Spa. Cast your eyes to the hills in the distance and reflect on this tranquil volcanic landscape once not so peaceful. Clouds of steam arise from the lake from springs deep below the water's surface.

For over 130 years people have come to these Rotorua hot pools to try the therapeutic, geothermal waters. Two types of mineral waters feed into the 28 pools at Polynesian Spa in Rotorua. Visitors have found great relief from the Priest Spring for their tired muscles and aches and pains, due to the acidity levels of the mineral water.

Whereas the alkaline water from the Rachel Spring at our Rotorua spa, due to antiseptic action of sodium silicate, is very pleasing on the skin. An old local belief is that those who swim in the Rachel Spring water will receive ageless beauty!

Enjoy bathing in a choice of four different hot pool areas as well as spa treatments and massages at Polynesian Spa in Rotorua.

The Rotorua Region

When you visit Rotorua, the thermal experience is everywhere. It steams up from the pavements; there are geysers fields, mud pools, fumaroles and hot springs all over the city. New Zealand's indigenous people, the Maori named the city Rotorua; Roto meaning lake and Rua meaning two.

Although most of the Maori population live in the urban areas, there are about 35 marae (meeting grounds) in the Rotorua district. You may be lucky enough to stay as a guest on a marae – an unforgettable experience. Or you could catch a Maori cultural performance, where stories are relayed through beautiful song and dance.

The Rotorua region is also one of New Zealand's prime trout fishing spots – you're practically guaranteed a catch, especially if a local professional guide is hired. Many of the volcanic crater lakes are home to a plentiful stock of trophy-sized rainbow trout.
