Solitaire Lodge

‘Lakeside Retreat, Great Cuisine and Activities’

Solitaire Lodge is a peaceful luxury retreat overlooking Lake Tarawera in Rotorua. All of the suites share views of the lake and mountains through floor to ceiling windows and from private balconies. This lodge is well respected for its dining and offers a full board tariff so you can relax and enjoy multiple breakfast options, light lunches and five course dinners to round off a perfect day. Signature Experiences from the Lodge include scenic helicopter flights over volcanic peaks to the steaming crater floor of White Island, world class Rainbow Trout fishing and an early morning bathe in a nearby thermal pool. Other local activities include the Lake Okareka Walkway, Buried Village of Te Wairoa and Government Gardens among so many others such as fishing, golf, kayaking, horse riding, bungee jumping, parasailing, mountain biking and white water rafting.

In Our Opinion

‘Solitaire Lodge is positioned well for sightseeing and activities and at the centre of its appeal is Lake Tarawera, not only does it overlook it but also offers lots of complimentary activities to enjoy on it.’
