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.

    Loved our stay - such a quaint step back in time. Loved every minute and can't wait to stay there again, for longer! So many adventures left to conquer. The scenery, ambiance and hospitality was incredible. Thanks Dave for making us so welcome and sharing your little piece of paradise with us. Look forward to seeing you again.

  • Thanks Dave for another great stay

    Thanks Dave for another great stay. Perfect location for a winter jaunt to Ruapehu. Was so nice to turn up to a warm house with the fire going on a cold evening. Wishing we could have stayed longer. We will be back.

    Lovely comfortable, clean, well cared for Bach in one of the most beautiful and peaceful locations we have ever come across. Amazing views from the living room across Lake Rotoaira. Tongiriro steaming away behind you. The Tongiriro Alpine Crossing starts literally a few minutes down the road, as do a succession of other brilliant walks and things to do in the national park, or around Turangi if you prefer. Highly recommended.
