explore the area

Maruia Hot Springs is located in the middle of the Lewis Pass National Reserve and is surrounded by protective forest and mountains. In winter we often get a fresh blanket of snow which makes bathing a magical experience. As we are fortunate to be located in such a wonderfully remote location we have a number of hidden walks and trails that guests can explore. Walking trails to fit and suit any timeframe or experience level. This is the perfect activity to enjoy before you bathe. Let the geothermal mineral springs help rejuvenate and revive your sore muscles after a long hike.
