Taupo DeBretts Hot Springs & Pools
Ahhhhhh… the bliss of sliding down into the natural mineral pools of the Taupo DeBretts hot springs. With two huge mineral pools set amongst beautiful landscaped resort surroundings, it’s the perfect spot to relax and soothe tired, aching muscles.
Taupo is one of New Zealand’s most active thermal regions, and DeBretts enjoys a prime location at a natural ‘hot spot’ – a geothermal spring known as Onekeneke. For more than a century, people have flocked here to enjoy its famous relaxation and medicinal benefits. At Taupo DeBretts, we cool the way-too-hot volcanic waters down to a far more inviting temperature range of 38 to 41°C (100.4 to 105.8°F), all the while preserving the abundance of health-enriching mineral components.
As well as the main pools (complete with waterfall and bubbling hydrotherapy spots) we also offer 12 private mineral pools – the perfect complement to our Living Waters Day Spa. And when the weather gets warmer, the Lake Taupo region comes alive with holidaymakers seeking to cool off. Here again, Taupo DeBretts makes a splash with our fresh water pool and spa, interactive water play area, BBQ & picnic facilities, and our very popular hydroslides!
Whatever the season and whatever the reason, we invite you to soak up all that Taupo DeBretts hot pools have to offer.
Please Note: We have a strict no alcohol policy at the water park. Dogs are also not permitted.
