15. Wheako Paru – Mud Experience

The mud in the mud baths can be a blend of mineral-rich clay, thermal water, and combined with essential oils.

It is said to have therapeutic benefits for the skin, including detoxification, exfoliation, and hydration. The mud is applied to the body, which is filled with warm, mineral-rich water.

After soaking in the mud, guests can rinse off in a nearby Wairere (shower) before continuing on to the wellness journey at Wai Ariki Hot Springs and Spa.

The mud was used for soothing sore muscles, reducing stress, and promoting relaxation.

In addition Wai Ariki Hot Springs & Spa also offers a variety of other wellness treatments, such as massages, facials, and body treatments, providing various options for guests to relax and unwind.
