10 Thermal Pools
Waikite Valley Thermal Pools is a unique place to go to experience the ‘Living Waters’ of Waikite Valley. With ten pools to choose from, ranging in temperature from 35 – 40°C, there is something to suit everyone. The main splash pool is ideal for the family or you can truly relax and unwind in peace in a private spa where you have the luxury of being able to control the temperature of the pool. In addition to these great options there is a passive bathing pool, a tranquil garden pool and a covered pergola pool. Take a gentle stroll along the eco trail to Te Manaroa Spring or stay for a while in the adjacent campground.

Beautiful location and value for money. Wish they had more showers in camp ground as had to use the ones near the pool. Would also be good if cafe stayed open later as nearest food is Rotorua.
22Sept18. We loved this place when we came in 2014 and think we will always come back when we visit from UK. Make sure you go up to the somewhat scary stream outlet. Water coming out of the ground at 98degrees c!
Various pools and popular with the locals by the look of it and not surprising.
Wiakite was amazing. We got excellent customer service throughout, beautiful serene place rustic old world blend with the new world expectation of tourist experience. Quality product and service at an excellent price for campers. Will go again for sure.
The best kept secret of rotorua
This was recommended to us by our rental company. Being able to stay in a powered site in a wonderful location was a real treat, but the pools were great. Staff were friendly enough and the pools are class. Even in winter it was amazing. Went dark early so great for stargazing and doing some reading. Bit annoying you have to pay for lockers. $4 for washing and $4 for dryer. Nice kitchenette area, and the pools are much nicer than the nearby Rotorua due to the lack of sulphur smell!
Great for our ten month old - not too crowded. Somewhat outdated changing facilities.
Bit outdated and cold showers. The hotpools are super nice and relaxing.
Was super nice to go into the hot pools after a long, cold day.
