You’ll find a relaxed atmosphere and friendly welcome when you discover this secret spot in the forest.

It’s all about connecting you with nature, friends, and family after your day’s adventures. Bathe in your own cedar hot tub surrounded by native trees and ferns, while you receive tub-side bar service at the push of a button.

The fresh (non-geothermal) water comes from a aquifer spring, which is heated to just the right temperature for you to enjoy a relaxing 45-minute soak. The tubs can fit up to six people and come with complimentary drinking water and lockers. You can bring your own swimwear, or there is swimwear, towels, and robes for hire. Check in 15 minutes before your booked soak time.

Explore the unique café and bar in a backyard setting – which has smooth manuka-roasted coffee, Good George craft beer and cider, and Mills Reef wine.

Have a bite to eat, play lawn games and enjoy the outdoor campfires, or unwind with a “Shinny Dip” in the cute foot hot tubs, free with any drinks purchase.

Why is this Chuffed Worthy

James from Chuffed visited Secret Spot with his family on the very first day they opened in 2019. It was obvious it was going to be a incredible success, and now on a subsequent visit in 2022, the phenomenal growth of the ferns and trees onsite have evolved Secret Spot into a destination with no peer. What is obvious is that the owners’ (Brothers Keith and Eric) vision has played out.

Because of it’s location at Waipa entrance to the Redwoods Mountain Bike Park it allows for a amazing day out – riding the trails and then hot tubs to finish it off!
