Blue Baths is a heritage listed Bathhouse located in Government Gardens, Rotorua. Originally opened in 1933, the art deco Blue Baths daringly offered mixed sex bathing for the first time in New Zealand. Now stylishly refurbished and the geothermally heated pools reopened, the building is also available for private events.
An architecturally stunning building, Blue Baths blends art deco and Spanish Mission design elements to create a versatile and elegant venue. Located in Rotorua’s dress circle and described as one of New Zealand’s most loved buildings, the baths have been faithfully restored to regain their unique 1930’s ambience and are once again the epitome of glamour and style. The elegant Foyer leads to sapphire pools, classic Tearoom, the expansive Lido Lounge and heritage galleries, offering endless possibilities for events of varying size and style.
The Blue Baths event team skilfully orchestrates everything from intimate tea parties to themed extravaganzas both corporate and private, providing specialist catering, entertainment and event management services to an array of venues and alfresco locations across the region.
