Our standard terms and conditions apply and the following changes have been implemented.

Vaccination Certificate Requirements

As per government mandate for public pools you will require a Vaccine Pass to use our pools as of the 3rd December 2021.


As per NZ Government policy for hospitality businesses, Athenree Hotsprings and Holiday Park Ltd, will be required to operate a no jab + no vaccination certificate or failure to provide negative test result, within 72 hours prior to check-in will result in a no stay policy for all guests, visitors, staff and contractors aged 12 years and over. This policy will apply to the peak season only at this time and will be reviewed as traffic light levels are adjusted.

The reservation holder is responsible to ensure all eligible guests in the booking are fully vaccinated and can provide the required proof of NZ Government Digital Vaccination Certificate prior to their stay.

Children under the age of 12 years old at the time of their visit will not be required to show proof of vaccination. If you are unable to get a vaccination for medical reasons, you will be required to show proof of your government approved exemption.

In addition to the health and safety risks, we respectfully ask you to understand that non-compliance of NZ Government Covid policy results in extensive fines for our business. Your honesty and co-operation will ensure that we can make the most of summer at the beach.

This requirement will be reviewed on the 10th January 2021 depending on Holiday Park capacity and government restrictions.


Proof of NZ Government Digital Vaccination Certificate

As of now the government is providing eligible New Zealanders with a NZ Government Digital Vaccination Certificate as proof of full vaccination. The Reservation Holder will be required to show this certificate for all eligible guests in your booking party.  Proof of full vaccination for all guests 12+ years must be sent 10 days prior to arrival date. This can also include proof from “my covid record” app.

Please be assured that all information provided will remain private and secure. Please note, at this stage, the purple card issued at the time of vaccination will not be accepted as proof.


COVID-19“No Vaccination” | Cancellations

We acknowledge that not everyone wishes to be vaccinated against Covid-19. However, in order to fully operate during peak season, Athenree Hotsprings and Holiday Park is bound by NZ Government legislation. If you are not vaccinated or are unable to provide a negative Covid-19 test result and you have a booking with us between the 24th December 2021 and 10th February 2022, please contact us and you will be entitled for a full cancellation refund. Cancellations will only be accepted via email.


COVID-19 Cancellation Policy due to travel restrictions

For existing Peak Season and Non-Peak Season bookings that cannot proceed due to NZ Government imposed Covid-19 domestic travel restrictions, we will be happy to credit the full amount to your account or alternatively we can provide a full refund. We kindly ask that you give us as much notice as possible of any cancellations.

1.     This supersedes the standard cancellation policy on the booking website and is applicable right up to the arrival date.

2.     This policy only comes into force when the NZ Government notifies of a travel restriction that affects your travel dates.

3.     If you change dates, the rates for the “new” period apply, so there may be a deficit or a credit. We can advise of any differences in price before you make any changes.

4.     Any credit is valid for 12 months from the date of issue and subject to availability.

5.     This does not cover an event cancellation or an unfavourable weather forecast!
