Located at the north end of the Moana Hot Springs thermal anomaly, the Peppermill’s pools, hot tubs, domestic water for showers and mechanical systems, generate all of their heating energy from their geothermal operation 24 hours a day seven days a week. In addition to pumping the naturally heated water from the ground, the resort has also installed a reinjection well that returns the geothermal fluids back underground, to be reheated by the volcanic energy after it has heated the property. The tour will highlight the geothermal wells and engineering facilities. Our knowledgeable guides will provide an interpretive commentary during the trip, and you won’t even need to leave the hotel!

Although the tour is complimentary, pre-registration is required. Limited space available.
