There is something truely salubrious about relaxing into warm, natural water after a decent bike ride.
You'll enjoy the crystal clear natural spring waters of Rotorua, purified and heated for your comfort.
The Secret Spot is hidden away in the Waipa Valley, in the heart of New Zealand’s mountain biking mecca. But once discovered.... it will forever be remembered.....
Pick up a craft beer or wine and head down the boardwalk through the ferns to find your secluded hot tub next to the Waipa stream.
Immerse yourself in the soul-quenching pure, natural hot water – perfect for soothing tired muscles and forgetting about ‘2020’ for some glorious 'me' time.
As you look around, you'll be delighted to realise you are surrounded by ferns and other New Zealand natives, against the backdrop of the magnificent Whaka-rewa-rewa Forest.
Breathing in the oxygen-rich, fresh forest air while bathing outside will re-set your clock and offer rejuvenation for your mind, body and soul, for a healthier more energetic you.
So, if you are thinking it might be time to take some time to look after me - (and why not!?), we think you’ll thoroughly enjoy soaking in the beautifully handcrafted western red cedar hot tubs, at Rotorua’s not so secret, Secret Spot.
Book a one hour voucher for two people (or our hosts can do it for you).
You'll get access to the brand-new cedar facilities for showering and changing, personal lockers and your own Secret Spot Hot Tub.
We recommend planning about three hours at the facilities.
Make a morning, afternoon or evening of your Secret Spot experience - we are, of course, completely biased, but we think anytime is a good time for a Hot Tub!
If you want to keep your holiday simple, plan to enjoy at least one meal there. The Secret Spot has a beautiful indoor and outdoor café, with a fresh and delicious array of ready to eat meals and snacks for hungry cyclists.
To wash it all down, they do fantastic coffees or a generous selection of teas and other beverages.
If you really want to indulge (remember, it's always ok, to look after me!), there's a terrifc selection of tasty beers crafted by Good George.
And yes, Keith and Eric really know their wines, so they've carefully selected some great kiwi wines. They are generous yet affordable, including Rotorua's favourite (and only) vineyard - the lip-smackingly good selection from Volcanic Hills. Try a warm up your cotton-socks Mulled Wine; brewed exclusively for guests at the Secret Spot.
We know it's cliche but there's actually more!
At The Secret Spot, they even have mini hot tubs for your feet!
Enjoy a ‘Shinney-Dip’ - they're free with any cafe purchase.
Soak, Cycle, Dip, Sip and Sigh and take a moment to look after you.

BRAND NEW FOR 2021: New Zealand's first Virtual Hotel
This is a new Tourism Collaboration for Rotorua
We built a Virtual Hotel to help New Zealand's Tourism Industry recover. We wanted to provide a united platform for small accommodation providers (less than 10 rooms). We all operate under specific guiding principles and operational practices.
Together, we created Soak and Cycle Packages especially for New Zealanders travelling around our country but also for when the borders re-open.
We exist to make your experience in Rotorua safer, easier to book, more affordable while saving you heaps and heaps of screen time.
We really appreciate your custom and are committed to keeping 100% of your money in New Zealand's economy.
