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.

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.

We've just returned after spending a week at this awesome camping ground. It was very clean, lovely hosts and great facilities. Our kids enjoyed the trampoline, the playground and swimming and kayaking in the bay right at the Holiday Park. We will definitely be back! One of the nicest campsites we've been staying at so far. Thank you.

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.

After a long day tramping this stop was a blessing with its complimentary natural thermal pools. Spotlessly clean, friendly and helpful staff and beautiful waterside location in a quiet retirement town. We paid $21 per adult for a powered site, which was comparatively dearer than other options but the hot pools alone are worth it. They close the pools at 730 pm for cleaning.

I agree with a previous review, the best site we stayed at throughout our month long North Island trip. Very friendly and helpful owners who run a very clean and well presented site. Thermal pools are great and definitely worth a visit. Very well equipped kitchen with GAS cooking, a very welcome change to other sites! We were going to stay in Whangamata but decided to stay here instead, I would highly recommend!

The best camping site we stayed in, out of the fifty we stopped at while touring NZ in our campervan.

A warm and very personal welcome, a top-notch powered spot for the van on well-cared for lawn, with direct view on the water and the many shorebirds, absolutely spotless facilities where attention to detail strikes you the moment you step in.

What a pity we could only stay for one night at the end of our NZ stay!

Don't miss Waihi Beach nearby. At low tide you can take a nice walk there.
