Experience Hanmer Springs

Situated only 90 minutes from Christchurch, Hanmer Springs is a charming town renowned for its incredible alpine landscape and breadth of activities. Whether you are looking for an adrenaline-filled bike ride through the forest or a relaxing massage to unwind, Hanmer Springs offers a little something for everyone.

One of Hanmer’s most popular attractions is the Thermal Pools and Spa, situated only a short stroll from the Village Lake Apartments. Soak in the spectacular thermal baths fed by naturally warm, mineral-rich waters or drop by the spa for an opulent treatment. We would recommend visiting the pools at night and relaxing under the stars – treat yourself, you deserve it.

Accommodating a bustling community, there is no shortage of boutiques, cafes and restaurants offering a variety of cuisines and the best coffee around. We are always happy to provide suggestions and bookings, just let us know what you are after.

With the option to bungee jump, quadbike or even go white water rafting, you truly can tailor your getaway to fit your demands, no matter what they may be.

If you’re in search of a family filled holiday having some fun with your loved ones, Hanmer Springs will not disappoint.

  • WOW What A GEM!

    Bronagh and I recently stayed at Village Lake Apartments. Wow, what a gem!
    Everything was superbly done, from the warm greeting to the ultra cosy bed.

    Hanmer Springs is a fabulous spot, only enhanced by such a great place to stay.

  • Fabulous Place to Stay in Hanmer!

    My friend and I just recently stayed at Village Lake Apartments in Hanmer Springs. It was fabulous – total luxury and everything thought of for a very comfortable stay. We will definitely be back to stay – I would highly recommend Village Lake Apartments. The staff were also very helpful and it was set in a very serene environment, and within walking distance to the hot pools. While we were there it snowed and we could see the mountains with snow on from our lounge and bedroom windows – just gorgeous!!

  • Absolutely stunning apartments

    We stayed in a beautiful 3 bedroom apartment and felt instantly at home. This apartment was so immaculate that we felt we were the only people who had ever stayed in it. Our room was very tastefully outfitted with everything we would want for our weekend stay with beautiful furnishings and well equipped kitchen and bathrooms. Our bed was so comfortable I wanted to take it home with me…

  • The whole apartment was very clean and the heating had been turned on so the whole place was nice and warm. There was everything we could want in kitchen. Beds were super comfy. The view was lovely. Also appreciated towels available for the hot pools


  • Enjoyed our stay- spacious, warm and clean. Had everything we needed such as laundry and kitchen. Friendly and helpful staff. Will stay again


  • Had a great stay here with my grandparents. The rooms were really nice and comfortable. Lovely view of the lake and mountains. It was within walking distance of the town centre. I would definitely stay here again and recommend it to anyone


  • Fabulous. Great hosts and beautiful, warm, spotlessly clean rooms.
    Great location. Just a few minutes walk to town and the pools. Highly recommended


  • Warm and Comfy

    Awesome place to stay with very friendly hosts. Warm and cosy on these cold winter days. Beautiful views. Very comfortable and heaps of room. Great quiet location, but central to township. Will definitely be back to stay.
