Rotorua Hot Pool & Spa Water Experience

Kia Ora and welcome to the Wai Ora Lakeside Spa Resort, home to the Wai Ora Spa Water Experience. 

Wai Ora literally translates as "Healing Waters". It's a name that underpins the immense importance that Maori placed on water, especially the many geothermal Rotorua hot pools. Water was widely regarded by Maori as a means of well-being in the Rotorua District. For hundreds of years, local Maori have sought our the special "healing" qualities of the geothermal waters at Hells gate Geothermal Reserve. This is a legacy on which the Wai Ora Spa Water Experience is based.

Here, at the Wai OraLakesidee Spa Resort, you will enjoy jacuzzi pools and a solar heated pool with a backdrop of a clear spring-fed, fast flowing trout stream. Surrounding all of this water are beautifully landscaped grounds with a soundtrack of soothing, running water coupled with the native birdsong from the surrounding native trees. It is truly a place to both relax the body and invigorate the soul. Following a dip in the pools, follow the healing traditions of the Maori, with the steam room and Kawakawa infused steam sauna. These are a 'modern expression' of Maori healing techniques that have been perfected over the centuries. Guests can supplement their Rotorua hot pools experience with delicious spa platters and beverages served on site by our friendly and attentive staff who love the opportunity to host the "Wai Ora Way".
