Mount Maunganui Hot Pools Reviews
Hot salty water - just like boiling peas! Dec 31, 2008
If you're heading to Mount Maunganui (Th' Mount) then it's likely you're going for it's two great beaches and the sun. Even on cold days Th Mount doesn't disappoint swimmers because at the base of Mauao lies the Mount Hot Pools, a complex boasting several thermally heated, salt water filled baths.
Make your choice between the cooler large rectangle pool, perfect for the lane swimmers; or sit on a seat beneath the canopy covering the lounge pool.
For me it's a mixture of this one and the passive pool where you might be lucky enough to get under one of the four spouts pouring great quantities of water onto your shoulders and neck - ahhh, fantastic!
Off to one side are two plunge pools where you can soak and a couple of paddling pools for the kids to keep safe.
You can also book a private pool or enjoy a massage if that's more your thing.
The council are considering upgrading the place to cater for the tourist from the cruise ships. locals aren't too happy about that as it will surely mean higher prices. At the moment the price is just $9.50 for an Adult -well worth it!
