Ngai Tahu Tourism wants to build a $25 million hot pool complex in Queenstown.

The iwi-owned company expects the pools to bring in up to 350,000 visitors each year and says they will complement the town's adventure tourism attractions.

It says the facility would be built alongside a proposed convention centre, overlooking Queenstown Bay and the Remarkables skifield.

If all goes as planned Ngai Tahu says it should open in the next few years.
