Wai Ariki Hot Springs and Spa is a luxury spa and wellness centre set to open on Rotorua’s lakefront in late 2019. Situated on the shores of Lake Rotorua, this luxury spa will deliver health and wellness experiences infused with authentic Te Arawa and Māori culture, to create a rejuvenating experience to remember and share.
With Māori culture at its heart, the development draws on the 650 year legacy of the local Maori tribe, Ngāti Whakaue’s and Rotorua’s famed spa heritage. Its name, Wai Ariki or “chiefly waters”, is a reminder of the origin of Rotorua’s healing thermal waters, which have drawn visitors to the city for more than 130 years.
Wai Ariki’s unique features combine with therapeutic mineral waters to deliver a world-class bathing, spa and wellness facility that provides a place to relax, sustain and heal. Developed by Pukeroa Oruawhata, in conjunction with acclaimed spa and wellness provider Belgravia Leisure, Wai Ariki will be necessary to visit and challenging to leave.
Set to open in late 2019, Wai Ariki will set a new standard in the Health and Wellness Industry with a dedicated onsite management team, supported by the Belgravia Leisure Health and Wellness division.
The site will offer an in-depth experience to its guests and has a story to share with the Te Arawa and Māori culture at the heart of the wellness and spa experience.
