Hells Gate geothermal attraction is the home to a unique Rotorua Spa Experience - The historic MUD BATH AND SULPHUR SPA experience where Maori have been bathing in the geothermal muds and sulphur waters of Tikitere for more than 700 years and European settlers have been for more than 150 years.
Hells Gate Spa is a historic spa experience which features the geothermal mud baths that replicate the historic mud baths of 150 years ago and still uses the silky smooth grey geothermal grey mud from the geothermal park; and the sulphur spas that use the sulphur water from our 'Hurutini" pool.
This historic spa experience, unique in the world, will leave your skin clean and soft to touch which can last up to 6 weeks after the spa experience due to the amazing properties endowed in the geothermal mud and sulphur water by mother nature.
