The food is cooked with LOVE, all the organic fruit and vegetables have so much flavor you will not be disappointed with your meals. Alex and Fred are the most amazing host's they made our trip unforgettable!

We travelled away this weekend for our long awaited 7 year wedding Anniversary. fred and Alex the proprietors found out that it was our weekend and had a bottle of champagne chilled, ready and waiting at check in. our plans changed a few times with arrival and checkout times and "nothing was a problem". Fresh organic food and plenty of alcohol a throughly pleasant and indulgent experience. Many suggestions on what activities in the area would suit us and topped off by excellent company.
I would have no hesitations in recommending Hamurana Lodge to anyone.

My husband and I were "spoiled" by the entire experience of staying at
Hamurana Lodge. Gao took care of every need and made sure we felt
welcome beyond words. We highly recommend this place for a leisurely
stay. The grounds are beautiful to enjoy also.

We had the occasion to go to this hotel during our honey moon and both of us were impressed by Fred and Alex hospitality. They did all their best to make our stay perfect in their hotel. We had dinner one night and food was excellent on a very romantic and quiet dining room with fire-place. Breakfasts on the room were also incredible.
Fred was very helpful giving excellent hints about what to see and what to do in Rotorua.
It was the perfect start on our honey moon in New Zealand.

If you have the opportunity to go to Rotorua and you want a nice hotel with overwhelming service, you shouldn't miss Fred and Alex's Hamurana Lodge.

Hamanura Lodge is currently in the process of being given a new lease of life by a team of enthusiatic people who know what service and quality are. The Lodge sits amid sprawling grounds that evoke an English garden. Each of the rooms are decorated differenlty, with style and thought. But it is the food, service and engaging hosts that make this a special place to stay, explore Rotura, rest and unwind. They also made excellent suggestions about what to see and do that added to our experience of New Zealand - the Pure cruise on Lake Rotoiti was a particular highlight.

Stayed at Hamurama for a visit to Rotoroa while on the North Island. We were pleased we chose 3 nights as it gave us the right amount of time to explore, relax and enjoy the lodge. This Hotel is under new management and these guys really know how to make you feel welcome and well looked after. Make sure you eat in the restaurant as the the food and service are top notch. Allow some time to chill by the pool or in the gardens as well as the this is one of the places best features. I can't recommend the place highly enough.

My boss first discovered Hamurana Lodge last year when he took his wife out for dinner. His wife couldn't rave enough about the place and so we decided to throw a friends Bridal Shower out there. The service was amazing and the food devine! So much so that it really wasn't a struggle to decide where we wanted to go for our work Christmas dinner.
Alex and Fred are so friendly and welcoming, you feel like you're stepping into a friends house (friends with a 5 star chef!).
We had such a wonderful evening. The table was decorated beautifully and the as usual the food was delicious beyond words! They had received their new shipment of furniture and we certainly took advantage of sitting out on the deck and relaxing, before AND after dinner. A lot of our group didn't drink and so it was wonderful to be able to have delicious alternatives on hand. Canapes while we waited for our meals were just another wonderful touch!
I seriously couldn't recommend Hamurana Lodge enough and it certainly wouldn't be the same experience without the wonderful hosting of Alex and Fred. Thank you so much for a fantastic dinner and I look forward to going back!!!
