Media Release for immediate use: Tuesday 16 October 2007

Swim Pass Takes A Dip For Hurunui Residents

Hanmer Springs Thermal Pools and Spa has today introduced a special offer Hurunui Swim Pass for 2008.

Hurunui ratepayers and residents are entitled to an annual swim pass for only $99 if purchased before 30 November 2007. The normal price for this new swim pass will be $149.

This swim pass entitles the whole family to swim as much as they like, as long as they like, all year round at the Hanmer Springs Thermal Pools and Spa

Hanmer Springs Thermal Pools and Spa Marketing Manager Scott Callaway says they are delighted to be able to offer the discounted swim pass to local ratepayers and residents.

“We are absolutely thrilled to be in a position to give something back to the community. The whole complex is doing very well. This year alone we expect to have 520,000 people visiting the thermal pools and spa,” he says.

Hanmer Springs Thermal Pools and Spa has nine open-air pools, three sulphur pools, six private thermal pools, a heated freshwater pool, and a large family activity pool with two waterslides.

“There’s something here for the entire family so we’re hoping that our local ratepayers and residents take advantage of this special offer. If they take up this offer today they effectively get the pass for 14 months,” says Scott Callaway.

The Spa at Hanmer Springs is set to open on 06 November which is another incentive to take up this special offer swim pass.

“While you’re at the pool complex you may just wish to sample a Vichy massage or a hot stone therapy treatment. Everyone’s entitled to a bit of pampering!” he says.

This special introductory offer swim pass is valid for entry to the pools from the time of payment until 31 December 2008.
