After a busy day sight seeing in Rotorua (ohhh its such a hard life) we went to the Polynesian Spa, a local geothermal hot spot.

Overlooking Lake Rotorua the lake side Polynesian Spa has four alkaline rock pools, varying in temperature from 38 – 42°C (hot hot hot!).

The healing powers of these waters were discovered by a priest in the late 1800’s when it helped his arthritis. (does this mean it will make me thinner and younger ???? worth a shot!)
