Solitaire Lodge, Rotorua

Solitaire Lodge is one of the most beautiful lakeside retreats in New Zealand. The lodge nestles on an elevated promontory that provides breathtaking views across Lake Tarawera

Solitaire Lodge, one of New Zealand’s premiere luxury lodges, enjoys breathtaking views over Lake Tarawera, with lush natural bush and the backdrop of a volcanic landscape. Styled with comfort in mind, all nine luxurious suites are newly refurbished, featuring panoramic views over Lake Tarawera’s still, deep waters. Freestanding baths allow views over the lake while soaking. Complimentary mini bar, fruit and snacks are also at hand. Cuisine at the lodge is a highlight and focuses on local seafood, regional produce and pickings from the kitchen garden. Menus change daily to entice the expectations of today’s contemporary palate and dinners showcase New Zealand’s finest regional wine varieties with specially paired recommendations.

Easy lake access allows exploration of surrounding waters, secluded private bays, a three hour hike to a 65 metre waterfall and natural thermal hot springs in which to soak and unwind. Embark on an adventurous scenic helicopter flight over the surrounding volcanic landscape and land on an active volcano. Catch a good sized rainbow trout for dinner, or explore tranquil waters in a kayak or motorised dinghy. The lodge is also the perfect place to simply relax, indulge and rejuvenate, left in the able hands of your warm, friendly Kiwi hosts.
