Te Puia Springs

Rich in history and therapeutic thermal waters

Te Puia Springs Hotel has long since been a relaxing and tranquil travel destination. With a suite of accommodation options available ranging from backpackers to hotel rooms and camping sites, Te Puia Springs Hotel is a haven for many travellers exploring the hidden gems along State Highway 35. Guests are invited to enjoy the mineral hot pools, grab a bite at the restaurant and bar, or enjoy a game of billiards.

There’s also the Te Puia Springs Hospital down the road which was first established in 1907. The Te Puia Springs Store is a great little place for a stop and supplies with friendly East Coast service on hand. Hot food, barista coffee, petrol and postal services all in one shop. If you’re needing camping permits, you can head directly to the Gisborne District Council customer service centre in Te Puia Springs.

The beautiful beach at Waipiro Bay is just a short 10-minute drive from Te Puia Springs Hotel

Opening with daylight savings each year for summer camping. It’s a secluded, super scenic spot for fishing, spearfishing and diving.  pad-top-default pad-bot-default vheight-default mike Grid  pad-top-default pad-bot-default vheight-default mike
