Waiwera Thermal Resort and Spa, North of Auckland


Suitable for All ages

45 km from central Auckland, this has to be one of the few places in the country where you can sit in a hot pool and watch a movie, unless you have this set up at home!

There are a number of indoor and outdoor pools here of varying temperatures. The outside pool aimed at kids is 35 degrees, while the undercover movie pool is around 38 degrees.

Worth noting that kids need to be at least 1.2m to use the slides and only one person is allowed to go down at a time (so no Adult+Kid sliding allowed).

There have been reports of unfriendly staff and the complex generally looking tired and in need of some updating but these points are not something your average kid would notice and certainly wouldn’t spoil their enjoyment!!
