Our Water

The therapeutic waters in the 28 hot pools at Polynesian Spa come from two different natural springs:

The Priest Spring is named after Father Mahoney, a Catholic Priest who was ‘cured’ of his crippling arthritis from bathing in the waters in 1878. The slightly acidic water from the Priest Spring relieves tired muscles, aches and pains.

The Rachel Spring is a source of alkaline water, which features the antiseptic action of sodium silicate nourishing the skin. It was historically said that those who bathe in the waters of the Rachel Spring are blessed with ageless beauty

The combination of these two types of mineral waters is only found at Polynesian Spa.
