The hotel in detail

Set on a private peninsula overlooking historic Lake Tarawera, Solitaire Lodge offers ten luxurious suites, all with spectacular lake views, and renowned fine dining serving mouth-watering modern New Zealand cuisine. This is a truly enchanting place from which to explore this amazing part of the world.

Solitaire Lodge is the place for total relaxation. Sit out on your deck or balcony and experience the splendour of nature with just the gentle sound of birdsong to keep you company. Kayaks and dinghies are available to explore the lagoon and local islands. Special natural hot water pools are nearby - a year round experience to start the day. Massage services on site can easily be arranged to suit your needs.

Alternatively, from the Solitaire Lodge grounds, you can be transported to White Island, New Zealand’s active volcano by helicopter or enjoy the charm of a floatplane sightseeing trip. Lake walks are all accessible from our wharf, with a particular favourite of guests being that to the Tarawera Falls. Rotorua is 20 minutes drive and has become an adventure seekers destination, as well as the major cultural base for the Maori race with the natural thermal attractions playing a major role to attract visitors.
