Information

Welcome to Athenree Hotsprings & Holiday Park!

Athenree Hot Springs & Holiday Park is your family park of choice. Located in New Zealand’s sunny Bay of Plenty region, at the northern end of Tauranga Harbour. Our all-season Athenree accommodation has a tranquil, park setting with magnificent mature puriri trees and an abundance of native birds. Great memories are created and a relaxing holiday for the whole family is guaranteed!

Ideal Family Accommodation

There are many activities in the area and we offer several great accommodation options for you to choose from. We have spacious 2-bedroom Motel Units and Deluxe Chalets available (each with Freeview and SKY TV), also standard cabins (share park facilities) and we certainly don’t compromise on space for camping with our range of tent and campervan sites.

Thermal Mineral Pools

Staying guests are free to enjoy our two natural mineral pools. The pure thermal water feels silky and soft on the skin and are perfect for relaxing in after a long day sightseeing. There is a continuous flow of spring water in the pools, creating bubbles to help soothe away any aches. Our new mosaic artwork within the pool area has created quite a buzz among our guests. Both pools are drained and thoroughly cleaned daily so you can be guaranteed a special experience in our chemical free pools.

Inspection of our park and accommodation are welcome.

Nice spot, clean facilities, owners are very kind. 25 $ ppn powered sites, free unlimited showers. Free access to Hot Pools. No minerals in the water, just 35 degrees warm and a heated pool of 39 degrees. Lots of birds around.

Great! Thanks for the kind words and nice to know you enjoyed your stay with us. There are minerals in the pools but the water is not highly mineralised so no smell or tarnishing of jewellery. Rates to stay are even less from tomorrow and we do specials in winter too. Thanks again for the comments.

Nice very clean camp right on tidal estuary with free access to hot pools. Although our site was right next to the mudflats it was difficult to get to the water. Lots of birds feeding on the mudflats.

Our favorite camping experience from our month long camping road trip. The owner gave such a warm greeting. She walked us around the campground to show us the facilities, and found us a nice quiet tent site tucked back away from everyone. Highly recommend. The hot pools are incredible, but they do close at 7:30 pm for cleaning so make sure you get there in time for a soak!

Quiet park with good facilities and free use of hot pools.
Wonderful bird life in the estuary but few places to walk

Thanks for taking time to comment. Guests just love our pools! We do have plenty of bird life here - and you can walk either side of the estuary here in Athenree, and the wetlands on the way to Waihi Beach are worth a look too.

I’m an ocassional hot pool customer with a pre paid account.What impresses me is firstly the staff,how friendly and positive they(Sue got to know my name almost immediately the first time I visited the pool and is always pleasant friendly and always remembers my name) and secondly how clean and well presented the hot pools are and their charges are reasonable too.Lovely mosaic murals decorate the walls around the large pool giving pool users something pleasant to admire.I warmly recommend both kiwis and tourists alike to seek out this little local gem near Waihi beach and experience the pleasure of these hot pools,pools which are emptied and refilled every evening.We are fortunate to have such a lovely local facility .

After a long day out exploring in the rain, we were keen for a bit of extra luxury than a DOC site. As soon as we saw this place had thermal springs we were sold. All the staff were so friendly, we had a beautiful spot with no one around while we watched the sunset over the water from our van. The hot springs were exactly what we needed and enjoyed warming ourselves up. The warm showers helped too! The kitchen is fantastic, there are laundry facilities and could not recommend this place more. We can’t believe we stumbled onto such a gem. Thank you everyone involved.

Lovely quiet park with large green grassy sites. Thermal pools a big draw card, but also available to local community so quite busy and a bit grimy at the end of the day. Pool emptied and cleaned daily so morning swim was fantastic. Very clean but dated and limited bathroom facilities. Quite expensive considering facilities. Great for a couple, but couldn’t stay for long with a family.... perhaps that’s the appeal!

This was the cleanest site we visited on our 5 week trip the place is lovely in a beautiful setting. It is a bit remote but that makes the place special.

We had a mix up on our dates and the office were friendly and accommodating I only wish we could have stayed longer.

This was our second trip to Athenree Hot Springs Holiday Park and we're already planning our next! We absolutely loved it again! So clean and well set up. Staff super friendly and helpful. The mineral pool is great, and it's lots of fun taking a kayak or stand up paddling board to the bay right next to it. Very family friendly. Thank you again for an awesome holiday!

A lovely site with a great view, very friendly owners. Loved the thermal mineral pools, beautifully clean. Best recycling area we saw in New Zealand. Clean toilets and showers. Very quiet overnight considering it was the Friday of Labour Day weekend we stayed.

One of the best van parks in the NZ North Island. Very clean and well maintained. The two thermal pools were the perfect way to unwind after a day of exploring. The host was very welcoming and helpful. She even organized for us to be picked up by the free local RSA Club courtesy bus, where we went for a tasty well priced dinner.
