You get your own tub for your party, no interruptions or rowdy swimmers with you – great! The 12 tubs are secluded and set outside amongst the tree ferns, with optional umbrellas over the tub to shade you from the sun or rain. At night you soak in a magical setting of lanterns amongst the beautifully lit surrounding native bush.

Oh, and what goes well with a hot tub soak after a big day’s adventure? A nice cold craft beer or cider or refreshing beverage of your choice. Just like a journey to our favourite hot stream in the bush, there’s built in lots of cool little surprises for you to discover on your visit to Secret Spot. After showering and changing in brand-new cedar facilities, and picking up your flax kete (basket) with craft beverage of your choice, you head down the boardwalk through the ferns to find your secluded hot tub next to the Waipa stream. Relax, share the stories from your day’s adventures, and connect with nature.

Important Information

Here’s how it works – you book your tub for a 45-minute soak, and turn up at least 15 minutes before soak time to give yourself time to get changed and ready for hot tub awesomeness. If we have available hot tubs, we can cater for walk-in bookings, but best to book ahead so you don’t miss out.

  • Our hot-tubbing hours are from 9am to 10pm every day (we may be open longer for major night events held in the Waipa Valley). Last soak session starts at 9pm each night. Book your 45-minute soak on the hour or on every quarter hour.
  • Book up to 6 friends or family per tub, with larger groups needing to book multiple tubs and then decide how many people will share each pool.
  • Bring your own swim wear and towels, or rent them from reception.
  • Bookings can be rescheduled up to 4 hours before your reservation but cancellation requires 12 hours’ notice.
  • Alcohol may not be bought onto the premises, and Secret Spot is a non-smoking facility.
