Tekapo is renowned for its natural hot pools situated in the picturesque mountainous setting with alpine fir trees growing on the slopes. The pools remain warm throughout the whole year, water temperatures vary from 36 to 40 °C. The pools are equipped with benched seatings. The quality of services and natural setting are on a par with the world famous hot pools in Iceland.

In winter, an ordinary spa session may turn into a unique experience ​as you will be able to soak in the steaming pool with the heaps of snow lying on the ground just around your hot bath.
