Most Unique Places to Stay at When Visiting Rotorua

No matter if you are looking for a remote and romantic time, fun filled days for the whole family, or a shared experience with your friends, Rotorua is the perfect weekend getaway destination for all types of travellers. And almost as important as great company is the place you are staying at! Make your next trip to Rotorua even more special and book one of the most unique and beautiful spaces.

The Cabin – Fantail Grove

Located below Sugar Maples, Ferns and Native Plants on a beautiful 2-acre piece of land in Hamurana, The Cabin is the perfect spot to relax and recharge. It was purpose built and architecturally designed in 2019 as a holiday retreat and is only a 15-minute drive away from Rotorua CBD. Watch the night sky from the private outdoor bathtub or see the wildlife from the bid deck or through the big windows, lean back and take a breather.

Tiny House Experience in Okere Falls

Live large in this newly designed and built tiny house! A perfect hideaway for couples or a great base for a friendship connection trip in Okere Falls. The tiny house is within walking distance to swimming in Lake Rotoiti, all year fly and spinner trout fishing, bush walks, white-water kayaking and rafting, hot pools, and a great cafe with beer garden just 5 minutes down the road! There is nothing you will miss when you are staying here.

Cosy Cottage

Get comfy in the cosy cottage, centrally located in Rotorua! Not only a great weekend trip, but also a time travel experience. The cottage is lovingly decorated and furnished with family treasures for an amazing old-school kiwi encounter. Feel secluded on the countryside but open your door and after a quick 15-minute walk you’ll reach Eat Street for amazing restaurant offers. Literally the best of both worlds!

The Woolshed

As the name suggest, this property used to be the farm’s woolshed but was lovingly and cleverly converted into a gorgeous two-bedroom cottage offering comfort and character. Watch sheep and deer graze on the surrounding paddocks when you relax on the large deck or take in the amazing views of the lake and volcano through the trees. The woodfired hot tub will also be extra inviting for the whole family after the wild ride experience at Zorb Rotorua!

Glamping

Staying on theme with hut tubs, the Safari Tent in Ngongotahā Valley offers an unforgettable holiday of luxury glamping. And amazing news for all dog and horse lovers, your 4-legged children are welcome to the property as long as they are farm socialised! Go on amazing bush walks or be in the heart of Rotorua after a quick drive, the glamping hub facilitates all wishes and needs.

 

Stay comfy and cosy all year around with these incredible stays in Rotorua and experience the tranquil landscapes, delicious foods and fun filled activities. You will never be disappointed from a trip to Rotorua.
