Onsen Hot Pools

This is slightly out of order & back in Queenstown. One thing I was looking forward to was a nice romantic evening & then a visit to Onsen Hot Pools. We were picked up in town after a nice dinner & drinks, then taken to their facility up the valley.

The pools are fairly new & family run. We had a great time visiting with them & hearing their story about how they decided to open their business in New Zealand. We were checked in & upgraded to the pamper pack & candle lights to make the evening extra special.

WONDERFUL! No other words to describe it.

We were lucky enough to catch an amazing sunset while we relaxed in our hot tub, breathed the fresh mountain air and enjoyed a romantic evening.

The pools sit in a quiet valley with a river running down the middle. I'm sure it's also beautiful to look at during the day, but the sunset hour is perfect to see the valley early & then the stars at night.

I'd highly recommend this to any couple visiting Queenstown. The pools were clean & well run, the staff were extremely friendly and the experience was so unique.

GOOD NEWS OF THE DAY: Going out to dinner to celebrate a late Father's day with John.
