Small, not too touristy and very beautifully located between Nikau Palm trees. It is a lovely place to relax for a couple of hours. The walk to the Nikau Pool is amazing!
Perfect springs!! Clean, cheap, well situated and the walk was perfect.
It was an amazing place with very hot water - $12.
It was a hot day and we only fancied the 20 min loop walk but there was a charge for it and we walked away as why should we have to pay for walking through our own NZ bush!
Under new management since July 1 2012.
Friendly, helpful owners, great place to visit.
Very nice, well looked after, great setting in the forest. Hot hot pools.

Easy walk, nice private forest history.
Nice hot springs near Gisborne in a forest with several walking tracks. Walk to the pools which are about 5minutes up the river.
The walk up to the top pools through the forest (only 10min) is well worth it. We had them all to ourselves, and it was a lovely amongst the nikau palms. bathroom and shower were clean. one of the nicer paid hot springs I've visited.

Set in really nice bushland which has walking tracks within it that lead you to the hot springs. Fossiled seawater that bubbles up from the ground 30-40 degrees - very hot and good after a long journey.
On SH2, south of Gisborne. Natural salt water, hot springs in themiddle of a rain forest. Good display boards on well maintained track.
Cool but warning about meninigitis isn't good. Location - not easy to see. Be carefull, don't put your head in the wake
Smells nice. Quite fimiliar.
Enjoyable hour in hot tubs. General area and toilets quite dirty. Great Cafe.
Great spot. Take a 10 minute trot through native bush to the top pools. Nice to sit in hot pools surrounded by Nikau Palms.
Great spot for a soak after a surf in Mahia. Best baths are a 10 min walk up the path.
