The view is epic!

Nothing compares to the amazing view from Onsen Hot Pools! The mountains in the south island of New Zealand are absolutely breath-taking. I regret to have only purchased 1 hour in the hot pools, I could have enjoyed the view and the experience for at LEAST 2! Also having stayed an extra hour we would have been able to watch the sunset… sad face.

Everything is at your fingertips

The entire experience is so relaxing! Onsen Hot Pools has many package options to choose from, check out their website here for more information. I’ve added a photo below of some of the package offered at Onsen.

Invite your friends along!

Bringing friends along always makes the experience better doesn’t it? This is also an amazing retreat for a couple! We ended up bringing some fruit and munching on the delicious strawberries.

Meditate, relax and rejuvenate

The hot pools is a great place to completely relax, take in the beautiful scenery and meditate. We all need to set aside some time for relaxation in our day. We can only live the hustle and bustle life for so long before we need a nice break for ourselves. Sit back, relax and enjoy the hot water and the view!

Let yourself go, be free!

If your not looking to relax, why not let yourself go, take your top off and show the mountains your boobs! The mountains are literally the only thing that is looking at you, and a tiny house in the distance (I don’t think they have binoculars haha!) Of course you’ll have to capture this moment because it’s an awesome shot! Share your photo below if you have one as well!

Things to know

Shuttle Bus

There is a complementary shuttle bus from central Queenstown. This is always good if your planning on drinking at the hot pools, or if you’re just being lazy! The drive is about 7 minutes out of town. Click here to read more about the shuttle bus.

The View

The hot pools are located off a cliff looking over the Shotover River. You’ll most likely get to see the Shotover River Jetboats wiz through the river as your relaxing in the pool.

Don’t be rushed

Take your time when you visit the hot pools, the view is amazing! Perhaps your stay in the pool wasn’t long enough, sit outside on the lounge and take in the view with a nice cup of tea.

I hope you visit Onsen Hot Pools when coming to Queenstown!
