Ocean Spa to reopen to public

Published: 19 April 2023

Ocean Spa Changes Ownership

Ocean Spa reopens to the public on Monday 15th May, after some essential upgrades undertaken since Napier City Council took over the facility in February.

Ocean Spa Manager Karryn Baudet says the work has made the facility fit for purpose as a significant attraction for both locals and visitors.

“Our customers will have a much better experience overall. We know our regulars have been chomping at the bit to get back into the pools again, and we’re so pleased we can now welcome them back,” says Karryn.

Work has included upgrading the electrical systems and plant, repairing and resurfacing the passive pool and spa pool interiors and improving the floor surfaces for group fitness. There are new changing rooms with improved facilities for families and people with special needs. There’s new decking, lighting, and upgraded CCTV security. When they visit, members will receive new cards to scan for access to the gym, pool areas and other members-only benefits.

Karryn says there’s still some staff recruitment and training being undertaken, including for lifeguards.

“Unfortunately this means there may be times when our Active and Toddlers’ Pool are not resourced to allow us to open them for swimming. We apologise for this, but as soon as our team is fully staffed and certified we will resume operations with all pools fully available,” says Karryn.
