Waking up, in the comfort of a warm hotel room, in Rotorua, sheer luxury! I’m thinking of the places to visit in New Zealand that I am taking my passengers to over the next few days, like a mud bath in New Zealand – Rotorua.

Step outside and its 3 degrees centigrade, but a

fantastic clear, clean,day. An awesome morning, not a cloud in the sky, this is going to be a fantastic day.

It’s late July and well into winter here in New Zealand. We are heading south east off to Napier, the Fruit bowl of the North Island.

However, as we make our way out of Rotorua, the fog descends on us and any thoughts of magnificent views diminish as the cold sets into our bones, we are wishing we were still indulging in that mud bath in New Zealand that we had yesterday.mud bath in new zealand

Mud Bath in New Zealand

Rotorua, is the geothermal capital of New Zealand, with many attractions and activities to take in while visiting. The group of English School Girls, who are currently traveling with me around the North Island, played a hard fort couple of games of netball, against a local school and to relieve the aches and pains and to pamper their youthful skin and egos, they indulged in a Mud Bath in New Zealand– Yes that’s right a Mud Bath.

Out at an area known as Hells Gate & Wai Ora Spa, you can take a bath/soak in a naturally heated pool of mud, which you massage over your body. Then plunge into a cold shower and finish with a hot sulphur spa.


The area has been long known for the healing and soothing properties of the geothermal mud. In fact Rotorua has long been a Spa town dating back to the 1880’s.

Today Rotorua’s Museum has an excellent display and stories of the bygone era of  mud bath in New Zealand and various spa treatments, including.. Get this.. Colon.. cleansing. Some of the hydrotherapy treatments involved bathing the warn thermal waters while an electric current was passed through your body. Kinky!!!

Visiting Rotorua, the tourist capital of the North Island can be very exciting and interesting not to mention the mud bath in New Zealand. I’ll keep you posted on other activities available there as well as other places to visit in new zealand.
