Everything was surreal. Just beautiful. Buuuut who gets off at having to have your dinner start at 5pm to finish by 7pm. Just couldn't believe it in this day and age. Wake up management.
Lovely, relaxing experience.
The creation of one man with such determination Tucked in the back streets with an entrance blended in with foliage and boulders hide a pure pleasure experience.

It is not expensive because it is so nice. You feel like you are in a tropical area. They built is perfectly. Recommended!!
Overall, it was a lot smaller than expected and the hot pools weren't all that hot. There was also construction going on while we were there which took away from the relaxation. To their credit, they only charged us for the hour we spent there when we initially signed up for a full day.
The Lost Spring was one of the places, where I found it hard to leave.... Entering the Lost Spring is an absolute experience! The pools look like they have been there for millions of years already, the stunning vegetation gives you the feeling of being in the tropics and the water - what can I say....wrappes around you like silk... my skin felt so soft afterwards...and I felt relaxed and happy, all the stress falling off me. Nice staff and the food - probably the best in the whole town. I havent tried the Spa experience, but might do that on my next visit. I'm definitely coming back.
Access savings worth hundreds of $$ on Top Ranked NZ Accommodation and Activities for just $1 per day.
Extremely disappointing! The large pool was closed, the only other pool open was luke warm at best and they wouldn't give a refund. Definitely not worth the $25 each for this experience (even with an extra half hour included in the price). It was a waste of money and time. I had looked forward to these springs after all the good rankings, but it did not live up to them.
Wow! A stunning place, unquie atmostphere, Awesome experience and a must do for anyone coming to the Coromandel. We loved it and had our parents 50 wedding aniversary there, everyone had an exceptional time and our friends and family owo and awed and such a magnificent treasure we have here in Whitianga.
A truly luxurious experience. The pools, the ambiance, the exotic gardens and the relaxing spa treatment made my visit a very memorable one. What a way to spend a beautiful day - being pampered.
The Lost Spring is a beautiful, relaxing experience! All the hard work that has gone into it has payed off. The food at 18sixtyfive is great and I love having delicious fruity drinks brought to me poolside. I would recommend The Lost Spring to everyone, it's a great chance to get away and feel like you are in paradise!
Brilliant! A work of art with a practical purpose; the creation of one man's idea of paradise, successfully put together to become a place of stunning beauty, wonderful colours and shapes built in with lush greenery. And you can swim in amongst it all!! Whimsical, fun, unique.
Quite an exotic experience for NZ and put together so well. We've travelled throughout the country trying out and enjoying various activities and The Lost Spring is well up towards the value for money end of the scale. A real relaxing stop off for us and well worth a visit for any tourist.
Awesome experience and a must do for anyone coming to the Coromandel. Took my wife to the Lost Spring for her birthday, enjoyed a few hours soaking in the hot pools with a glass of champagne, the setting is amazing and words can't describe it, truly unique and authentic. Lunch at 18sixtyfive restaurant on site afterwards was superb, including the specially created dish for the Wildfoods challenge has to be up there with the winners (first time I have eaten a tartar of beef heart!). Plan on spending the day there, swim, relax, eat and chill. Hats off to Allan and the team and all the hard work that has gone into creating a truly unique experience for visitors to enjoy. GO!
Loverly, relaxing pay by the hour - nice cafe good showers with cosmetics.
after 15 years in tourism, this is undoubhtably the most exciting operation i have seen, i have visted hot springs extensively throughout new zealand and japan(having a japanese wife) and this tops them all, one mans dream and a labour of love over more than 17(?) years, which can been seen at every turn, perfection. this place has to be seen to be beleived, if you are going to the coromandel make sure you go here, if you are not planning on going to the coromandel i suggest you make a detour to go here, this should be one of your must do's in new zealand. this place deserves nothing but a 100% ranking, a 10 cant give it justice, this place is off the ricter scale. cheers guys awesome experience see ya again soon
Magic! I would give them 12 if i could.
A totally unique and refreshing experience.
Wow, exceptional....we even had drinks brought to us in the pool.
