The Rotoaira Retreat is basic and comfortable retreat at the foot of Mt. Tongariro with stunning views across Lake Rotoira & Mt. Pihanga.

It really is an ideal venue for those that love to be outdoors, in a stunning setting, beside a World Heritage site.

But, if doing outdoor stuff really isnt your thing, the Retreat is a great venue to spend time cuddled up together in front of the log burner, looking across a beautiful vista.

If you have kids there is lots of room for them to play and explore - they will love it

If you have dogs, they're welcome too and theres even a secure dog run where you can leave them safely, from where they too can enjoy the views!

Despite tranquility and solitude, all that the area has to offer is within easy reach, for example:

It is less than 20 minutes to the carpark at Whakapapa, and 15 minutes to the Chateau and National Park.

The finish of the Tongariro Crossing (Ketetahi) is only 7 km's away.

Lake Rotoaira is less than a two minutes away - good fishing, swimming, kayaking and jet ski-ing here.

Fabulous fishing at Lake Otamangakau and Lake Rotopounamuare are only 10 minutes away.

Fishing, rafting and kayaking on the impressive Tongariro River are only 10 minutes away.

The start of the Tongariro Crossing is approx 20 km's away – the Tongariro Crossing tour buses drive past the Retreat, en-route there.

Turangi is less than a 15 minutes away and is handy for the lovely Golf Course, The National Bank, Cash Machines, Petrol Stations, Supermarket, Bakery, Liquor Store, Tokaanu hot pools and boat-ramp access to Lake Taupo

It doesnt matter if you seek tranquility or something very different – the Rotoaira Retreat will meet your needs.

  •  The house is in a fantastic location - the view of the lake and mountains was stunning and the proximity to National Park was a bonus. We loved the fireplace too. However the house was filthy. We spent the first hour of our stay scrubbing the toilet and bathroom and even had to put the shower curtain through the washing machine as it was so grim. There were dead blowflies throughout the house and the dishes in the kitchen all needed washing before use. The house needs a major Spring clean! 

  •  We had an awesome few nights at the Bach. It's absolutely SILENT and with a beautiful view of the lake and right near Tongariro. The only problem was getting in touch to check that the booking had gone through. Don't worry about it, Dale is just chilled. Book it, pay, and just rock up. The drive is 10 minutes from Turangi where there is a supermarket etc. The Bach has everything you need for cooking. Plenty of firewood for a nice fire. Beautiful walking tracks around and spectacular views.10/10 

  •  It's not about the house but the location.... Wow what a view - breath taking. Close to all you need to see. And than come back to put on the smashing fire. Kids (6month,3yo) loved it.
