The small town of Hanmer Springs on New Zealand’s south island is renowned for its all-natural hot springs, and the town’s resort—the Hanmer Springs Thermal Pools and Spa—offers a luxurious relaxation retreat. Featuring more than 20 different geothermal pools, a lazy river and saunas, it’s the perfect place to pamper yourself. The pools are filled with geothermal water drawn from a bore directly next to the resort, and the pools’ temperatures range from 28°C to 42°C. In addition to the spa, the area also offers excellent outdoor adventure: visitors can explore the many mountain biking and hiking trails, or go jet boating down the nearby Waiau Gorge.
