We spent the Easter break at the Marama and I do not have a bad word to say!! We stayed in a two bedroom unit which was lovely, warm and cosy. And fully equipped! It was plenty big enough for my husband, two children (12 and 14) and I - certainly a much better size than a standard hotel room. My bed was deliciously comfortable, the furnishings were all clean and in excellent condition and all the glassware, crockery, linen etc were faultless.
As the resort is on the opposite end of the lake from Rotorua, there is a short drive back to town, but as these units are fully equipped with everything you need to cook your own meals... there is no need to drive back to town .... unless you want to!! Besides the drive gives you another great view of the lake.
The resort is very pretty and well maintained... and very relaxing. I only heard the rumble of a couple of trucks, however our unit was in the middle of the complex.
Our kids had a great time using the spa and pool.. with only a wee grumble about the temperature of the water, it wasn't cold enough to stop them going in though!
All in all we had a lovely weekend and would definitely stay there again.

- Rotorua is truly like no other destination. It's a fascinating mix of culture, adventure and relaxation. Renowned for being a hotbed of thermal activity, Rotorua's hot springs and spas make it the perfect getaway for pampering, stress-release and rejuvenation. At the same time it's also a place where you can truly get the heart pumping. Adrenalin-raising adventures punctuate the Rotorua landscape from thrilling luge rides, white water rafting and even rolling down a hill in a giant translucent ball (zorbing). If all that's not enough for you, then you also have an area rich in Maori history and culture and friendly locals to walk you through it all. Located just 20 minutes outside the city to ensure your getaway is relaxing, WorldMark Resort Rotorua is the perfect base for whatever brings you to this simply wonderful area of New Zealand.
