Stayed here for a few nights with my netball team and we were made to feel very welcome :) The rooms were lovely - clean, spacious, warm, and well-stocked with everything we needed. I'd definitely recommend the Arista as a great place to stay.

Awesome hospitality and facilities, highly recommended for teams travelling to Rotorua. Warm, clean and cozy - host couldn't have been nicer - thanks for an awesome weekend with the netball girls - perfect for us and the individual spas in each family unit were great. 3 units slept 13 comfortably and were big enough for us all to go into one unit for meals and team meetings. Thanks loved it. Wendy Bremner

I was in Rotorua early of August with family of 4 adults, spent 2 nights at Arista's family room. Wonderful villa like apartment with its own spa. Good heating system in place. Clean and cozy interiors. Enjoyed their in house DVD collections. Friendly and helpful hosts. A great place for family stays.

Hi There,
Thank you for your review. We recently redecorated our units in December 2012, thank you for your positive feedback on the upgrades we have made. We are lucky to be on thermal heating here, keeping the rooms nice and cosy on those cold winter nights.
Hope to have you stay again.

We stayed in one of the mezzanine family units for 3 nights. Simply it's the best accommodation ever since I've been to Rotorua. It felt perfect for us with lots of space, clean modern decor, two TVs with DVD player and movies with our choice. It was so comfortable and the thermal wall heaters which was amazing had kept the room so comfortable and warm. Mike was so organised, welcoming and accommodating. Thank you so much for letting us have a good time in Rotorua. We will be back to stay again in the near future.

We stayed for 5 nights in one of the mezzanine family units - it was perfect for our family of 5 - lots of space, clean modern decor, two TVs a great DVD library the playground was well used by the kids as was the self fill spa - it was so comfortable and the thermal wall heaters were amazing and kept the room so cozy - mike and Annmarie were so welcoming accommodating and helpful you can tell they think about what families need I think it's the best place to stay for a family - only downside was the noise from the TVs travelled to the other level but that's probably unavoidable with the mezzanine - overall we are so glad we chose the Arista to stay for our family holiday -

English crew stayed two nights 11th, 12th August. Rooms very clean. Owners very friendly and helpful. Spar bath semi outdoors attached to room. This was brilliant as it was cool with the outside air. Really great sitting there drinking wine. Fully recommend. Stayed in an attic room. Cosy. Only downside had to go down stairs to toilet, but not a real problem.
Would stay there again.

Room Tip: Loft room romantic.
