Hands down the best place to stay in Rotorua. Mike is great to deal with and always ensures that you have all you need and are enjoying your stay. Wouldn't stay anywhere else. We stayed with a large group of 10 people. Across two rooms we fit easily.

Arista was the best accommodation on our 4-week-roundtrip in NZL. Annemarie and Mike were the nicest hosts and most helpful people we`ve met. We got a lot of ideas for the rotorua area and for dining (especially the last minute reservation at the ´urbano bistro`). Thank you Annemarie and Mike Rosi and Michael from Frankfurt.

You will not regret staying at Arista of Rotorua. I would return in a minute if and when I have the opportunity to return to New Zealand. Morgan was extremely friendly, helpful and downright humorous, so he added a special touch to the environment.

We are spending 2 nights here and already love it. The owner Mike couldn't be more helpful. The written story of how his family came to take on this venture is amazing. The spacious, well appointed and well located unit is spotless and the private spa tub in the enclosed courtyard is a great touch. It's so nice to have... More

Stayed at the Arista this week for 2 nights. Mike and Annemarie were very helpful before arriving with advice on tours and car hire; they were also able to accommodate our early check in request, which was welcome. The location is perfect, close to the town centre and many good restaurants. The rooms are excellent and spacious with a hot... More

We stayed 2 nights. The place was really ideal, with a bedroom on the mezzanine and kitchen/dining/living area downstairs. I had to get up early one morning and work, so it was nice for me to be able to do that while my wife slept undisturbed upstairs. Was also nice to have the dining table for the night we got... More

We received friendly service and excellent information on local attractions and hidden gems which made our stay in Rotorua memorable. An added bonus was the DVD library, which had quality movies to borrow at no extra cost. It was close to supermarkets for self catering and very easy to locate when coming into town. The room was very quiet even... More

Stayed at Arista for three nights with family visiting from overseas. We had the three bedroom unit next to the office and it suited us perfectly. The unit was spacious, comfortable, modern and quite upmarket. Two large flat screen tvs, large fridge freezer and a fully equipped kitchen. We cooked a lot and everything that we needed was supplied. There... More
