Reviewed 8 August 2012

I had the pleasure of returning to Rotorua for a fashion shoot this past weekend. Myself and the team checked into Hamurana Lodge and were treated to the utmost in hospitality.

No request to Jenna, Joao, Fred or Alex from our demanding team was too much trouble. The epitome of supreme hosting, this team. From the lavish accommodations and supreme breakfasts to the subliminal setting and five star facilities ... start to finish this is one hell of a place to stay!

I would be failing miserably in my duties to all travellers if I didn't recommend this incredible lodge and the amazing team who make a stay here such a pleasure!

I, for one, can hardly wait until I have to visit the area again!

Room Tip: All rooms are stunning .... I can assure you that, given a choice on arrival, you'll be hard-pre...

My husband and I spent 5 days in Humurana in July, we had wonderful time in Roturua. The lodge is beautiful well decorated with 5star facility. The location is little bit away from the town which is relly quite, but with beautiful view, fantastic experience. The manager Jenna is absolutely lovely, thank you Jenna for your hospitality, you guys really made us feel like home.

We had the most amazing time at Hamurana Lodge. The team at the lodge are incredible with service that is out standing. We where given a tour of the lodge when we first arrived and were made to feel really welcome from the moment we were greeted at the car. The restaurant is excellent and the grounds are peaceful and tranquil. The room was fantastic with everything that we needed. We would highly recommend staying at Hamurana Lodge and go as far as saying that if you miss this lodge in Rotorua, then you have missed an amazing piece of New Zealand hospitality. Jenna and the team are stunning.

We had an excellent 2 nights stay in the lodge. Staff are professional, helpful and with high efficiency. It's unbelievable that only a few of them can handle everything in the lodge, including preparing meals, making up rooms, arranging activities and upkeeping the place. In addition, the food served was excellent and thanks to the chef - Charlton Brown! Will definitely recommend friends to visit the place.

We stayed at Hamurana for 2 nights during our NZ honeymoon. The staff were friendly and attentive, nothing was too much for them. When we arrived we had a lovely tour and brief history of the Lodge from Charlie before we went to our room.
Our room was spacious and comfortable and we could tell that the lodge have gone for a premium feel in the rooms with luxury furnishings, iPod connection and flat screen TV. The only small thing that I would pick up on is the wallpaper and bath was a little dated compared to the rest of the furnishings in the room.
We loved the heated floor in the bathroom, this was an added luxury for a chilly night in NZ winter! The breakfasts were delicious and the views from the restaurant over the grounds were beautiful.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Hamurana and would recommend without hesitation.

My husband and I had 4 nights being thoroughly spoilt at Hamurana Lodge.Room, service , surroundings and delicious food were top class in thoughtful combination ! When I think back, top of the list would have been the lovely staff who were always there to meet and greet, help with local information and advice where to visit. Totally professional without being pushy - we felt like members of the family.Chef Charlie is the best in the region.
The grounds were stunning and a lovely drive to the entry was the start of the adventure.
Rotorua has a lot to offer. Autumn is a great time to visit with scenery enhanced with deciduous trees.Don't let anyone put you off visiting Rotorua but don't forget to treat yourself to stay at Hamurana Lodge ! Robbie F

My family and I stayed at Hamurana Lodge for 5 days. All the members of the group enjoyed our stay very very much. The location of the property is exactly what I call idyllic, quiet, sceenic and the surroundings were well maintained. Well located for must do trips around Rotorua and beyond. Having been in many first-class hotels around the world this place compared on par if not better then most of them. The service to keep us cofortable was delivered in professionl yet relaxing style by the management and staff alike. The food was professionaly prepared and presented in a fasion, that left everybody impressed and most importantly it tasted fantasic. I want to to go back and recomment this place to anybody that appreciats a touch of class.
