White Island Rendezvous, is a 38-room motel conveniently located alongside Whakatane Wharf and only minutes-walk from boutique shopping and restaurants. Enjoy the spaciousness of a two-bedroom deluxe apartment, simplicity of a studio, or the luxury of a Californian king in one of the modern stand-alone micro-village cabins. Guests can wake-up to a hearty cooked breakfast delivered to their room (with the exception of the Bungalow) or enjoy the atmosphere of our on-site cafe. All units have free wireless broadband access and Sky TV. Alongside the motel sits White Island Tours, which operates daily tours to White Island, New Zealand’s only active marine volcano, and Moutohora Island, a pest-free wildlife sanctuary. Book tour & accommodation directly to receive a discount!

What a well run and well designed place. Staff were uniformly helpful and pleasant. We opted for the cabins and loved the way they were sited in a group. Clean, spacious, and definitely a place you could stay for 3 or 4 days.

My fiancée Tara and I stayed there for two nights on the second night we were husband and wife! The staff are truly a credit to the White Island company. They are friendly, knowledgeable and engaging and made us and our wedding guests feel so welcome for the whole of our stay.
