Rotorua - Just feel it!

Rotorua, the host to some of the world’s most impressive earth and natural forces, and you know immediately that there is something different.

You can really smell that you are at a unique spot. Located just a few minutes from Rotorua city centre are hissing geysers, pools of bubbling mud, scaling water and unique sinter formations. See the volcanic landscape and visit one of the 4 mayor thermal spots: Whakarewarewa, Waimangu, Waiotapu and of course Hell’s gate. The Whakarewarewa village for example hosts the busy Pohutu geyser which erupts about 20 times a day and can reach a height of about 30 meters.

Use your stay to enjoy one of the world most beautiful natural spas.

Don’t miss:


Rotorua Museum


As winner of ‘Best Heritage Attraction’ at the 2000, 2001 & 2002 New Zealand Tourism Awards, Rotorua Museum is the perfect place to start your Rotorua adventure.

Discover the essence of Rotorua and learn the great stories and legends that have shaped the past and present of this fascinating region.

The museum is located in the famous Bath House Building, an icon itself.


The Blue Baths


First opened in 1933, the Spanish Mission buildings were designed for recreational rather than medicinal bathing. They were promoted as a glamorous place and for the first time in New Zealand people could indulge in mixed sex bathing.

One of New Zealand’s most loved buildings, The Blue Baths complex reopened in 1999.


The Polynesian Spa

The Spa is one of Rotorua's popular stops with its 35 bathing pools (including hot springs and a large mineral pool), a small hydro slide, and family spa fresh water pool.

Open 365 days a year it offers "Aix massage" in the Lake Spa mineral pool consisting of hot jets of water pounding into aching muscles in the back and limbs.


Te Wairoa - The buried Village

Violent and unexpected, the volcanic eruption of Mount Tarawera was New Zealand’s greatest natural disaster. It destroyed the magnificent Pink and White Terraces.

For more than four terrifying hours, rocks, ash and mud bombarded the peaceful village of Te Wairoa.

Now nearly 120 years on, the excavated village offers a first hand insight into the history where you can take an emotional journey through the museum which tells the fascinating story of Te Wairoa village, the voyages to the Pink and White Terraces and the eruption of Mount Tarawera.
