Wai Ora - our award winning Rotorua spa

"Wai Ora", a Maori term which means "healing waters", encapsulates the experience at Hells Gate as a historic cultural spa experience that dates back more than 700 years. Wai Ora heals physically, mentally and spiritually. Our luxurious therapies use the famous, mineral rich geothermal muds of Rotorua. Our highly regarded massage therapies are based on the historical Mirimiri healing practices of local Maori people.

To complete your pampering package, you can also enjoy a manicure, luxury spa pedicure, or even a fragrant steaming, herbal sauna. Our Rotorua Spa incorporates nine therapy rooms including two couples' rooms where you can enjoy private dining and private spa pools. Relax, leave the world behind you and enjoy your stay. Our Rotorua Hotel staff will endeavour to make your Rotorua stay a very special and memorable one.
