After a day racing through the Whakarewarewa trails on your bike, the best way to relax and unwind is at Polynesian Spa by slipping into natural mineral hot pools, on the shores of Lake Rotorua.

Waters from two natural springs are fed into the 26 mineral hot pools – the slightly acidic Priest Spring relieves tired muscles, aches and pains – perfect after a hard day’s riding, while the alkaline waters of the Rachel Spring nourish the skin.

You can also revitalise your body with hydrotherapy – the new cold plunge pool is located in the Lake Spa and the extremes of hot and cold water cause muscles to expand and contract, offering gentle detoxification as toxins are squeezed from the muscles. It also improves circulation, is beneficial for muscle pain recovery and increases the body’s immunity. Alternating between hot and cold pools two to three times gives the best results… trust us – it feels amazing!

The Reflexology walk in the Adult Pools will helps to invigorate the body as well – by walking on the stones, pressure points in the feet are stimulated corresponding to all major body organs and areas – encouraging vital energy and blood flow throughout the body.

To reward your body for all its hard work, try one of our therapeutic spa therapies, we’d recommend trying a De-stress Aromatherapy Massage which eases muscular aches and pains post exercise. This therapeutic blend of arnica and lavender combined with rosemary and ginger will help support healthy circulation and revive tired, overworked muscles whilst nourishing the skin. Reviving the body inside and out, a juice bar is located in the hot mineral pools while the café offers a range of healthy treats too.   Polynesian Spa is the perfect place to relax and enjoy nature’s gift.
