Our favourite: Hot Pools

There’s not much better than chillaxing in a hot pool. And with summer nearly finito (eek), topped with all the grim weather we’ve had recently, everyone’s been lusting after a steamy session or two.

Here’s my pick of the watery bunch…

The Lost Spring in Whitianga


Not only is it pleasing to the eye with its private caves, soothing waterfalls, champagne bubbles and foliage, but when you’re not floating, you can put on a cosy robe and visit the Lost Spring Thermal Spa or dine in the restaurant. Bliss.

Onsen Hot Pools in Queenstown


With amazing views of the mountains and Shotover River canyon, these private indoor hot pool really are the ultimate in luxury. If you want to go all out, then get the indulgence pack for $25, where you can watch the stars twinkle by candlelight, sip sparkling wine and nibble on strawberries. Romance to the max.
