Waiwera Thermal Mineral Pools
All pools and spas contain natural geothermal water. We do not reheat any water - we are indeed “100% naturally hot”. With the exception of rainfall, each pool contains geothermal water. * By law we are required to add chlorine to our water.
Waiwera has a variety of indoor and outdoor pools with varying temperatures and depths. Most notably we have a Movie pool and water slides. Our height limit for the slides is 1.2m tall.
