Auckland is one of New Zealand’s most popular tourist destinations, with all of the attractions, facilities, and stress that a big city provides.
If you're looking to wind down after some time spent in the big smoke, Waiwera Infinity Thermal Spa Resort is just a short drive away.
The resort, located a 35-minute drive north of Auckland, is situated on the beautiful Hibiscus Coast. Locals and international guests alike are lured by the natural hot mineral pools, wellness spa, and massage and beauty therapies. While adults relax, the kids can amuse themselves at the resort’s many water slides or the movie pool, which shows family-friendly flicks each day at 4 pm and 7 pm.
You can bring your own lunch and relax in the shady BBQ and picnic areas, or enjoy burgers, roast chicken, and wood-fired pizzas at the Waiwera Café.
A day at the Waiwera Infinity Thermal Spa Resort may be enough to help you unwind, but if you need more intensive treatment you can stay in luxury at the resort's holiday homes or studio units, or more affordably at its seaside campsites and chalets.
Waiwera Infinity Thermal Spa Resort is open daily from 9 am until 9 pm on Sundays to Thursdays, and until 10 pm on Fridays and Saturdays. Entry costs $26 for adults and $15 for children aged 14 and under. This fee includes access to the pools and slides, but you'll need to pay extra for access to the private spa, sauna, and steam room, and health and beauty treatments.
