Located on the southern shores of the glistening lake of its namesake, Rotorua is a buzzing hub of Maori culture, hot springs and boiling mud pools in the Bay of Plenty area of New Zealand's North Island. They say a visit to NZ is nothing without a stopover in Rotorua, as this ancestral home of the Te Arawa people (who settled almost 600 years ago) is the most exhilarating example of where the turbulent forces that formed New Zealand are evident. Where better to base yourself on a fantastic four-day DIY tour of the country with everything from flights to car rental taken care of?
The Silver Fern Accommodation and Spa is a firm favourite in Rotorua; voted number 4 of 102 hotels in the area on TripAdvisor. Providing relaxed, friendly service with only the most stylish furnishing and facilities, the 5-star Silver Fern will ensure you're in for a treat when you step into your Standard Studio. These ground floor access suites offer all you could need such as great big comfy queen-size beds, large private spa pools, wet floor showers and more. The property itself is just minutes from Rotorua city centre and its cafes, restaurants and world famous attractions, but don't go past the gorgeous onsite Day Spa (and your complimentary treatments, of course).
The Points of Interest
If you're a NZ regular or a newbie to these majestic shores, Rotorua is an ideal vantage point for anyone looking to explore the Central North Island. Simply hop into your Toyota Yaris (or similar) and head to the world famous tourist destinations such as the Bay of Plenty, Hamilton, Waitomo and Lake Taupo - all a comfortable driving distance away. For a little blood pumping action, go white water rafting with Raftabout or take a volcanic Air Safari, otherwise if taking it slow is more your cup of tea, slurp down the serenity of the Polynesian Spa or take an eco-sailing cruise over the beautiful waters of Lake Rotoiti.
