Overview

Experience New Zealand’s Historic Spa like those enjoyed by the Ngati Rangiteaorere with our Hells Gate Mud Bath and Spa package at Rotorua. Local Maori had used, for over 800 years, the acidic sulphurous waters and thermal muds of the Hells Gate Geothermal Park and Mud Spa, for relaxation, bathing, healing and overall well-being.

Apply the natural geothermal mud liberally over your skin while you soak for 20 minutes in the warm sulphurous waters – this opens up and unclogs the pores of the skin. Rinse off the mud bath with a cool shower to restore your blood circulation, then dip into a hot sulphur mineral spa to gently exfoliate and deeply cleanse your skin. Emerge refreshed and rejuvenated, with skin that is smooth and soft to touch.

Break free from routine and treat your senses to the geothermal wonders that the park offers, enjoying commanding views of New Zealand’s magnificent geothermal scenery from our landscaped bathing area featuring freeform sulphur pools surrounded by native trees and plants. Enjoy the cooling effect of the mineral-enriched waterfall, or refresh with a dip into the cool plunge pool flowing from the waterfall.
