If you’ve been busy hiking up Mt John and around Lake Tekapo, why not enjoy some much-needed down time and chillax at the Alpine Springs and Spa.
Alpine Spring’s outdoor hot pools contain water from alpine springs on site, which is then heated to between 36 and 40 degrees in winter and 30 to 40 degrees in summer. The pools have been designed and engineered with sustainability, energy efficiency and the environment as top priorities.
And fact-lovers out there will be interested to know that for every kilowatt of electric power used, the pools produce three to four kilowatts of heat – which is very efficient and sustainable energy use, I’m sure you’ll agree.
But aside from all the facts and figures, when it comes down to the nitty gritty, the best thing is about Alpine Springs is you can experience soaking in these fantastic hot pools whilst enjoying incredible views over Lake Tekapo and the Southern Alps. Life
get much better than this, that’s for sure.
And if all that soaking has worked up an appetite, you can indulge at the fully licensed café on site. Or if you really fancy a splurge, why not take advantage of the Alpine Spa, where you can enjoy a range of indulgent treatments including facials, massage, manicures, pedicures, waxing, tanning and full body exfoliation. Pure bliss!
