A friend and I recently enjoyed a two night stay in this property while we were in Rotorua for a workshop. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful, from the time of booking through to check-in on arrival and check-out on departure. We enjoyed an upgrade to a two-bedroom unit which was fabulous and just made out stay. The unit was spacious, comfortable and scrupulously clean - we could not have wished for more.
PS The thickest, fluffiest towels I've ever enjoyed in a motel!

WOW, What a fabulous property, from the booking to the check in stay & check out, we were made to feel welcome, on arrival we were escorted to our room and everything was explained, CLEAN it would be the cleanest property I have stayed in every thing was clean and crisp from the comfortable bed to the clean kitchenette and the spa bath was oh so relaxing and breakfast this morning was great, piping hot and delicious, we had bacon, poached eggs, baked beans, tomatoes oj toast & spreads and for $17.00 was great value for money.
The complex is a credit to you. Thank you for a wonderful relaxing stay, we will be back for sure next time when in Rotorua

Room Tip: We had a corner unit and was so quite, we did not hear any road noise from fenton street at all

My partner and I are a young Melbourne couple who stayed at this Resort in mid-July. We absolutely loved it. The hosts were lovely and extremely helpful, and helped us with every little enquiery we had and what the best sights to see were. They definitely made our stay in NZ more enjoyable having such nice people to converse with. We found this resort was 10 times better than the 5 star + hotels we had stayed in nights before, including the Skycity Grand Hotel! The rooms were gorgeous, and kept imaculate. Heating was perfect, and the spa was fantastic. The hotel cleaners were also wonderful to talk to. Everyone was extremely helpful, and we ended up staying here a total of 3 nights, coming back to stay a second time in the same week! The prices were fantasitc and the units were great! Cannot thank you for making our stay in NZ that amazing, we will definitely be coming back one day to stay again. I honestly cannot stop raving about this accomodation to everyone. Thankyou, thankyou, thankyou!

The Emerald Spa Resort is very modern, clean and quiet accommodation even when substantially booked. Owners maintain a very nice atmosphere of welcoming all visitors and are always willng to help with travel ideas and local attarctions, retsaurants etc. Large spa baths in units make for extra relaxation and if you have to have the TV on it swivels so you can sit in the bath and watch your programme. Beds are comforatble, good ammenties and very well sound insulated. Very reasonable rates and watch for specials on line.
