Golfing is also a must at the beautiful Waimarino Course - suitable for all ages, easy walking & spectacular views. All the thrills & spills of indoor rock climbing,a brand new indoor skate park, canyon swings & volcano treks can be had, followed by long wallows in soothing hot or cold thermal pools.

  • Great location, close to amenities and the mountain

    Great location, close to amenities and the mountain. Some space around the property for our young kids to explore. Place was basic but functional, and Sara was quick to respond when necessary.
