Beating in the heart of New Zealand’s North Island, Rotorua offers a unique blend of Maori culture, geothermal wonders and outdoor activities. Start your journey by witnessing the surreal landscapes of Wai-O-Tapu Thermal Wonderland, where vibrant pools and simmering mud form a visually striking scene. Feel the thrill of mountain biking in the Whakarewarewa Forest and witness the power of nature at the iconic 30-metre-high Pohutu Geyser. Discover a different perspective on the Redwoods Treewalk, an elevated path through majestic redwood trees. Dive into Maori traditions with a hangi feast at Tamaki Maori Village and unwind at the Polynesian Spa’s geothermal hot pools overlooking Lake Rotorua. The best time to visit is during the Southern Hemisphere’s spring (September to November) for pleasant weather and bountiful green spaces.
After a long day of adventure, rest your head at Regal Palms Resort. This world-class resort provides a range of studios, suites and apartments – all with cooking facilities and a hot tub. It’s only a 5-minute drive to Rotorua city centre and a 15-minute drive to Rotorua Airport.
