Hot Pools in the heart of whitianga

The Lost Spring is an adult relaxation centre and we cater for supervised children 14 years and over. Relax in beautifully hand sculpted hot pools filled with natural thermal spring waters and surrounded by luscious native Coromandel bush. 

OUR thermal WATER 

Old stories tell of a lost volcanic spring on the Coromandel Peninsula, laden with minerals and rich with healing properties. Inspired to find the lost spring, and filled with a vision to create a place of rest and relaxation, in 1988 one man began to dig in Whitianga. Built by hand, The Lost Spring embodies the volcanic history of the Whitianga region, Coromandel's native bush and the relaxed New Zealand atmosphere of the Pacific. Drawn from 667 metres underground Whitianga, the thermal water is crystal clear and naturally good for you. A high concentration of minerals leaves your skin feeling soft and nourished. 


Whatever the time of day or year, we optimise the temperature of the pool to suit you and the conditions – from tropical waters in the day to warmer evening bathing. The Lost Spring therapeutic thermal hot pools offer a range in temperatures to suit everyone. Enjoy a comfortable 32ºC (90ºF) to a warm 38ºC (100ºF) in the Amethyst Pool and Bathtub Terraces, or soak away those aches and pains in our Crater Lake hot pools at a toasty 41ºC (106ºF). We have just the right temperature for everyone.
