Reviewed July 9, 2010

Our trip in NZ was great but two accommodation properties made the difference with any other trips we have done, Hamurana Lodge in Rotorua was definately top one on our list. Three of us like to treat ourselves to boutique properties and the luxuries of nowadays world. The hosts of Hamurana and the staff provided us with all of that with no exceptions -from service, to amenities, to facilities, the lodge is an ideal retreat while discovering the fantastic rotorua sights and activities. A place we will return and recommend - thanks guys.

Dear Flo, a real pleasure hosting the 3 of you - Hamurana is ideally set up for groups of friends with all the cozyness and luxuries of the lodge and its privacy. As discussed we are very much looking forward to your trip at the end of the year and the chance of hosting you again-warm regards Fred

We booked the lodge after online searches for romantic luxury retreats in Rotorua to spend 3 days on our NZ tour during our honeymoon and what a find. From the moment we arrived and the warm welcome, to the little notes and daily offerings, including the very personalised service, we had a superb stay. Talking to other guests staying at the lodge during the evening aperitifs and canapes rituals by the fireplace we realised that this was indeed a real heaven and that we were in for a treat so we indulged fully. We had amazing spa at the lodge and also visited the rotorua thermal activities and done some sightseeing around. We will no doubt return when visiting NZ again and recommend the property to our friends. Thanks to the team for the special champagne picnic on our departure.

A group of four of us travel yearly to a specific destination and this year NZ was on the card. Having read many great reviews on the lodge we had high expectations when we decided to base ourselves at the lodge for 4 nights to explore the region. The service we received by the hosts and staff and the facilities were amazing. A true hidden gem you want to return to every day after sightseeing. The lodge is cozy, warm on a wintery night by the fire and has all the things experienced travellers are needing.
A top property on our list of boutique lodgings to visit - hope to return soon

I stayed at the Hamurana lodge the last week of may, and i truly enjoyed my stay! The Lodge in it self is a beautiful sight as you drive up through the fantastic grounds that surrounds it, and it only gets even better as you step inside and feel the warm and all together friendly atmosphere. I had a great room with very nice decor overlooking the garden.
I was very empressed with the effort they put in to making you feel welcome there, they try to accommodate you every need, and you can feel there is a personal touch to everything.
I had a very relaxing week, and came back home feeling like a new person thank to the great stay at the lodge.

During a work trip to NZ with four company executives we had the chance to be booked at Hamurana Lodge where their meeting room facilities and personalised services enabled us to meet our clients in not only exclusive surroundings and facilities but with easy access to all of Rotorua activities; It was an ideal base for our 4 day retreats which will definately be our choice number one for our next corporate trips. The easyness of the Sydney Rotorua flights coupled with the luxury facilities of this property made it an overall success. Thank you to the entire team for their efforts and services

Beautiful mansion, great room, fabulous food, awesome hosts!

Our hosts did everything they could to make our stay the best including giving us ideas for daytime activities. The breakfast with fresh (just out of the oven) croissants was fabulous. Cocktails and playing pool were favorite afternoon activities and dinner was so good we chose to do it both nights.

We stayed in some pretty great places through our 5 city, 14 day trip to Australia and
New Zealand and I have to say, this was the best. Thanks for the handmade chocolates
left at night time too...they were delicious!

aWe wanted to celebrate our first anniversary in style and comfort, and the Hamurana Lodge provided that exactly, and more. From the tranquil surroundings to the unfailing service of Fred and Alex, this was definitely an unforgettable experience, many thanks to you both. Matty, Chrissy & Sienna
