Welcome to New Zealand's most comprehensive database of freely available camping information. This is the only travel map of its kind in NZ.


Enjoy the amazing alpine scenery while relaxing in your private indoor/outdoor hot pool

ONSEN has 6 private Canadian type luxury tabs, housed in private cedar-lined bathing rooms, each of which can accommodate up to 4 people and is equipped with changing and shower facilities.

We capture pure water on its endless journey between the sky and the Earth in order to fill and continually refresh our pools.

They are filled with a mixture of mountain spring water, rain water, and lake water.

To maintain the pristine state of the water we momentarily energize pure Oxygen (O2) to form Ozone (O3) with a cleaning power a thousand times greater than Chlorine. Seconds later the Ozone reverts back to pure Oxygen, leaving nothing in the water but clarity, cleanliness and purity.

Each day we adjust the temperature depending on the weather,to assure you an ideal experience.

A unique feature of Onsen is the automated panoramic windows in each room.

Switch from indoor to outdoor by simply pressing the button beside the pool ,that ( which) would retract the windows and immerse you in the amazing alpine scenery.

Paragraph 3

Soak in the comfort of your own private pool, in peace and tranquility, contemplating one of New Zealand treasure; the outdoors.

Thoroughly enjoyed our hot pool experience here. So worth the money, the views are spectacular and so relaxing. After a week of travelling NZ in a motorhome it was just what we needed.

We spent a really good moment in our private hot pool, enjoying the view with a glass of wine. Definitely something you’ll enjoy to relax after a day spent hicking around this beautiful area.

A truly relaxing experience. A few problems though - their website doesn't say what each 'package' contains, so I booked the indulgence package and also chose to pay for hire towels. Turns out the package includes towels, so on arrival I had paid for towels twice. They offered me extra beverages or ice cream instead of a refund. I also found the staff to be quite abrupt (but not impolite) and their voices, volume and tone not in keeping with the tone of the experience. The waiting area is shabby. We were also shown to our pool room 5 minutes late with no offer of extra time at the end to compensate. Remember you still have to undress and take a shower before you can hop in and start enjoyed the tub. Luckily 50 minutes in the tub is enough as it's very hot! The tubs and rooms themselves are AWESOME.

They are a little on the pricey side but the view is magical and it is super relaxing - and romantic - on a cool night.

Set just outside of the city, it is calm, peaceful and tranquil. The staff were so friendly and the cleanliness of the facility made for a great experience.
