KIA ORA & WELCOME TO OUR HELL’S GATE 2.0 REDEVELOPMENT.

We are currently closed to the public, but the Hell’s Gate team are working hard behind the scenes to improve everything that Hell’s Gate has to offer, including our service delivery – our new Hell’s Gate 2.0 redevelopment.

From the moment you arrive, you will see things are very different. Your journey will begin through native gardens, emerging into our new whare taonga & reception. Experience waterfalls, renovated pools and mud baths as well as upgraded facilities all set in lush native gardens at the Hell’s Gate 2.0 Spa. Walk through the relocated carved waharoa into the steaming landscape of Tikitere (Hell’s Gate), experience the upgraded mud foot pool and strategically placed scenic lookouts.

Check out our social pages to join us on our journey through to the opening of Hell’s Gate 2.0.

Redevelopment Updates

A little while ago, we got a delivery from a friendly truck driver. This delivery has enabled us to start building towards the sky. The main building has begun to take shape, as we start to tick off more and more boxes. It's not just the building we've been working on though, our staff have been busy planting trees and improving lots of things around the reserve in anticipation for your arrival.

Out with the old and in with the new! With all the old building cleared out of the way, it’s time to start construction. The floor is poured, and the only way now is up. Stay tuned in the coming weeks as the countdown is on. We’ve been working tirelessly on this new development and can’t wait for you all to experience it for yourselves. See you soon!

It's all go here at Hell's Gate! Just the other day we had a visit from some heavy machinery and started the demolition of our old reception area and gift shop. With all that out of the way, we are now excited to begin construction of the new building. There are plenty more changes coming so stay tuned and come along on this journey with us as we work towards the opening of Hell's Gate 2.0.

Some of you may be asking "why are you still closed?" well we can answer that. When New Zealand entered into lockdown due to COVID-19, we had to close our doors to the public. We continually want to be improving on what we offer our visitors, so we decided the time was right to start the redevelopment of everything that contributes to your experience. We started with all our systems and as soon as we could get back on site, we moved onto the physical infrastructure. Yes, we will be closed until the 22nd of October 2020, but we think we owe it to our customers to bring them the best possible offering so they can enjoy our little part of Rotorua to its fullest extent. See below an artist rendering of the new entrance, this is only the tīmatanga (beginning).
