Travel deep into the heart of the Southern Alps to the parklands of the Lewis Pass, where snowcapped mountains surround and steam billows from natural hot spring pools, and discover a natural thermal wonderland that begs to be explored. For here on the banks of the Maruia River, in a sheltered valley in the Lewis Pass, is Maruia Springs , a unique tourist mountain hideaway with a more than a little touch of Japan.
Set beside the Maruia River, each thermal pool is a perfectly formed tarn, built from the smoothest of river rocks. For extra privacy, individual spas and hot pools overlooking the river, mountains and rock strewn valley, are available, while a traditional Japanese bathhouse provides segregated public bathing, to relax and unwind.
19 alpine lodge style guestrooms offer panoramic mountain vistas. At the main building, Shuzan – an Asian fusion restaurant – and a comfortable guest lounge with Wireless internet Café/Bar. Breakfast, Light lunch, Dinner and snacks are available throughout the day.
Maruia Springs is located in natural, tranquil surroundings. It provides a special place to escape the crowds and rejuvenate your body, mind and spirit in healing, mineral-laden hot thermal pools, whilst enjoying the natural outdoors beauty of the Lewis Pass National Reserve.
