Taupo DeBretts Spa Resort is a magnificent 5-star hotel located alongside the Lake Taupo Volcanic Zone and its natural mineral-water hot springs in Taupo, New Zealand.

Upon arrival, you’ll be greeted by stunning views of Lake Taupo and the volcanoes of the Tongariro National Park. After your long journey, unwind and relax in one of several hot mineral-water pools at the full-service Living Waters Spa, which offers body wraps, facials, scrubs, and pedicures. Afterwards, you can nap in the sun or work out any remaining tension with a therapeutic massage amid the lush natural scenery. Aromatherapy treatments are offered at the spa, and couples treatments are available (advanced reservations required). Meanwhile, the kids will be working off pent-up energy in the interactive water playground, which has a slide (surcharges apply).

In addition to the hot springs, the area offers plenty of other activities to suit everyone’s tastes. For some outdoor adventure, you can go rock climbing, bungee jumping, sky diving, white-water rafting, fishing, or kayaking. You can ride a jet boat through nearby rapids or take a helicopter ride above the mountains. Other outdoor activities located nearby include parasailing, miniature golf, canoeing, and sailing. A playground, barbecue, and café are on site, and the Bistro Lago al fresco restaurant serves modern European cuisine throughout the day (reservation required).

An airport shuttle is available on request for a surcharge. Free parking and free wireless Internet access are available for guests of the hotel. This resort provides an accessible path of travel, as well as parking and in-room accessibility, including roll-in showers, for guests with disabilities.

We enjoyed our stay in the cabin with en-suite. The friendly staff cleaned our cabin well. I liked the discount for the mineral pools but would have liked to have known that it was separate from the campsite. Great place to stay with children. I would recommend to my friends and family.
