People may tend to spend time in a hot water spring. Is it possible to get hyperthermia (like a sun stroke) due to this?

You betcha!

We report a case of acute hepatic failure combined with disseminated intravascular coagulopathy, acute renal failure, and neurological deficit caused by heat stroke after bathing in a hot spring.

Generically, the term you're looking for is non-exertional heat stroke.
