88-Ra Cafe Rotorua

The Cafe draws its name from the world-famous geothermal ‘Priest and Radium Spring’ located on-site in the Pavilion Pools area. This spring is where we draw our acidic mineral water from and has been used for therapeutic bathing since the late 1800s. You can find more information about our water here.
