Steeped in myth and legend, its location is brought to life by geothermal activity, billowing steam into the sky and giving nutrients to the surrounding mud and waters.

For over 800 years the local Maori people have used these muds and waters for many different ailments, including arthritis, joint pain and inflammation.

This unique mud is also known to replenish, soothe and gently exfoliate the skin.

This is the most active geothermal and mud spa in Aotearoa. It really shows off what makes Rotorua so special.
