Escape to the South Island of New Zealand into the tranquil Lewis Pass National Reserve to find Maruia Hot Springs. Being in the middle of a National Reserve has many benefits. The drive to the location showcases the true New Zealand landscape.

Arrive and be surrounded by mountain alps, forest, waterfalls and look out over the Maruia River. If you are coming in the middle of winter don’t be surprised if you get a day of snow (this is a magical experience as you can sit in the middle of the hot springs, nice and cosy while surrounded with a fresh layer of snow)

As a hydro-powered off-the-grid eco resort in the heart of New Zealand’s alpine national park with the purest mountain water for drinking and natural geothermal for bathing, Maruia Hot Springs is one of the most pristine retreat venues on Earth. A stay at Maruia Springs will place you in intimate contact with nature and help you discover your own true nature.
