“Wonderful & relaxing !”
Reviewed 17 March 2013

We have just stayed at the Wai Ora for 2 nights for our wedding anniversary.This spa resort is in a fabulous quiet setting, with stunning lake views & sunsets - very peaceful. The staff were always very helpful & attentive when required, & the food in the restaurant was excellent. We did indulge in a massage - thank you to the girls, it was magic! If you are looking for a lovely boutique style hotel, well away from the noisy city, then I would recommend to stay here.

“Excellent”
Reviewed 6 February 2013

Lovely rooms and a great location right on the lake. The service from all the staff was fantastic. Breakfast was amazing. The outdoor hot pool is great for relaxing in at night. We tried to book a massage at the hotel spa but it was fully booked but the hotel provided a free transfer to the Hell's gate spa and back where they offer the same treatments. We will definitely be back again.

“Wai Ora Lakeside Spa Resort Rotorua - Great”
Reviewed 5 February 2013

We stayed for four nights to explore Rotorua. The place is just out of town which we loved as it was peaceful and right on the Lake. We had a superior room which was lovely. Kitchen sink microwave etc which was handy.
I would highly recommend. My highlight and what made this place exceptional was all the staff. Very professional and nothing was to much trouble. I must give a special mention to the cleaner. Our room was made up each day just perfect and she was very friendly.

“High above what we expected”
Reviewed 11 January 2013

We`ve been there for 3 nights with 2 childs under 10. We were based there to explore the Rotorua region. The rooms were really confortables and cleans. We ate all of our dinners there and it was awesome. The staff was extremely kind with us and with the childs. We haven`t use the spa treatment.
