Hells Gate is NewZealand’s historical site for geothermal bathing, famous for its geothermal activity and “health giving” sulphur waters of the hot lakes. Since the 1840’s visitors have travelled to Rotorua to experience these beneficial waters.
Escape into another world of geothermal wonder, overlooking New Zealand’s spectacular geothermal scenery from the freeform sulphur pools in our landscaped bathing area surrounded by native trees and plants.
