My husband and I spent 2 nights at Treetops. Our villa was beautifully appointed. They offer complimentary soft drinks and water. We had beautiful canapés and drinks pre dinner and then the dining area was layed out in an elegant setting. They asked in advance if we had any dietary needs and they fulfilled all of our requests without having... More

Treetops was about 30 mins out from Rotorua but the drive is worth it, down a gravel track which is steep some corners it was an interesting track to explore.

We stayed at Treetops 3 nights. Included in the price was 1 Signature Experience lasting 2 to 3 hours per day. This was not offered to us, not even mentioned. Also, when we gave the manager our food preferences, they were ignored. My friend does not eat seafood, yet she was served more than one seafood dish each night. For... More

Truly a memorable stay with friends dining and wining with the open fires going and the rain coming down. Excellent service on arrival set the scene and clay shooting to end the two days outstanding. Plenty of room to move yet still cost. Best sleep in a while. Only disappointment spa pools not working - nor day before that apparently

The 3rd lodge in our luxury lodge tour of New Zealand, one can't help but compare. From the moment we reached the gate to enter Treetops we knew it wasn't to the standard of The Farm at Cape Kidnappers or Huka Lodge.

Treetops Lodge almost gave me the impression of being in Africa. The lodge is beautifully appointed with gorgeous rich woods, high vaulted ceilings, and zebra stripe upholstered chairs in the main lobby. Make sure you do a Treetops Estate tour as you will encounter cape buffalo, varieties of deer, wild rabbits, and lots of other native habitat.
