Rotorua, New Zealand, is home to hot geothermal waters, hailed for healing properties and cures for ailments such as sexual impotence, arthritis and a few other afflictions. There is a range of hot pools available for bathing, from quiet, reserved private pools to natural hot springs. In addition, there are shooting geysers and cultural experiences showcasing the Maori culture.

To get a truly immersive experience, it’s best to start the day at the Mitai Maori Village, home to the indigenous Maori culture. The warriors perform shows in an ancient war canoe while visitors eat a traditionally cooked Hangi meal. This is a fantastic way to add more to the trip and make it more than just a visit to some hot springs. Learn more about the fascinating culture and live the experience of the Maori warriors.

There are many thermal spas around the Rotorua lake. They range from more luxurious spa therapies to mineral hot springs. Some of the spas in this area rated among the best in the world. Another great spot is Hell’s Gate. It’s one of the most active thermal parks in Rotorua and home to a hot waterfall as well. Healing properties can be found in the geothermal-heated mud baths. Visitors will cover themselves in mud and spend hours relaxing in the hot baths to become relaxed and rid themselves of toxins.

Rotorua is a great place to relax and unwind from the stresses of regular life. The hot springs melt away the tiredness and aches to rejuvenate travelers.
