Rotorua, Central Plateau
Hot Pools & Spa Therapies
Rotorua has been renowned for spa treatments and thermal hot pools for the last hundred years. The Polynesian Spa lies at the edge of Lake Rotorua taking advantage of this vast natural geothermal wonderland. Guests can relax in a series of beautifully designed hot mineral pools with views out across the lake and choose from a world class range of sumptuous spa therapies, massages, facials, health and beauty treatments.
Polynesian Spa is one of New Zealand's oldest international spas and is a "must-do" attraction when visiting Rotorua.
The spa is a 100% New Zealand-owned private company since April 1972. We have had a policy of continuous improvement that has seen the old government-run baths of the mid 1900’s transformed into the internationally-renowned spa that it is today. All development has capitalized on the totally unique geothermal views from the spa overlooking Sulphur Bay on Lake Rotorua and on the sustainable use of the health-giving Rotorua geothermal waters. In addition, all developments have been done in strict sympathy with the original 1930’s heritage buildings on the site.
Set amid native flora,clients are spoilt for choice with the array of enticing spa and Aix spa therapies offered at Polynesian Spa Retreat. All therapies include complimentary deluxe Lake Spa thermal bathing — and the luxurious treatment products used can be purchased from the Polynesian Spa Shop afterwards as a memento of your visit.
