The Lost Spring, Whitianga

4.5
A getaway from the stress of everyday life surrounded by native bush and ocean sounds, The Lost Spring offers therapeutic natural thermal pools decorated with golden leaves and shaded with hibiscus flowers. The professional staff of the spa mix Eastern traditions with modern Western therapies. Take a soothing stroll along the pathways that wind between the pools, through tropical foliage, across a bridge, and through caves filled with rocks and crystals. The onsite restaurant offers fresh and healthy Pacifica cuisine and a view over a beautiful lagoon. Opt for a couple's massage or have a cocktail and settle back, listening to the sounds of water running from pool to pool mixed with soothing Polynesian music.

  • Beautiful, rainy day is a good day to go, the warm waters are appreciated. It looks like the photos, nothing I post would do it justice because it was overcast, and, I was relaxing so dumped my camera! The cashier was a bit too efficient, you should have a good idea of what you want before going as they look slightly stressed if you take more than a few seconds to make a decision. Another person at the cafe made up for it though, mega-friendly. If you are solo I don't think you need more than the 1.5hrs, it's plenty of time to transform into a prune. Pricey experience @ $45. $60 is for 4 hours. I didn't have food or drink but it was delivered to people around me. Apparently the coffee was nice but too hot to hold... I hope the milk wasn't overcooked! Pro tip; I didn't try this but a local told me if you leave your credit card at the front, they will give you an extra 1/2 hour. Let me know if you try it and the result!
  • The Lost Spring is an "adults only" hot pool. It is beautifully sculptured so that it resembles a small river set in an out door environment gently winding its way along. It is like an oasis. You can order cocktails and have them bought to the edge for you to drink. There are three main pools ranging from cool to hot. There is a restaurant, bar and a beauty spa.
