Hells Gate Geothermal Park & Mud Spa  is New Zealand’s Historic Spa experience. This geothermal area with unique thermal muds and acidic sulphurous waters has been used by the local Maori (Ngati Rangiteaorere) for bathing , relaxation, healing and overall wellbeing for more than 800 years.

The natural geothermal mud can be liberally smoothed over the skin while relaxing in the sulphurous waters of the private mud bath for 20 minutes. The mud bath is followed by a cool shower which helps restore blood circulation before relaxing in the hot sulphur mineral spas. The warm geothermal mud opens and cleans the skin’s pores, while the sulphur spa’s give your skin a gentle exfoliation and deep cleansing, leaving your skin clean, soft and smooth to touch.
