Nestled between the foothills of the Rimutaka Mountain range and the clifftops above the dramatic Palliser Bay, Wharekauhau Country Estate...
Solitaire Lodge, one of New Zealand’s premiere luxury lodges, enjoys breathtaking views over Lake Tarawera with a lush natural bush and volcanic landscape backdrop. From the moment you enter below the Lodge’s vintage beams, the shade sails beckon you through and your adventure begins. The main lounge yields a spectacular vista due to the lodge’s extraordinary location. Nearby, our fine dining restaurant is available for your patronage. Easy lake access allows the exploration of surrounding waters directly from Solitaire’s private grounds and jetty.
Located just twenty minutes drive from the city of Rotorua and Rotorua International Airport, car hire is highly recommended enabling you the freedom to explore neighbouring destinations and attractions at your leisure. Rotorua is a leisurely three-hour drive from the gateway city of Auckland, and a five to six hour drive from New Zealand’s capital city of Wellington. Chauffeured and helicopter transfers are available on request.
Solitaire Lodge has 10 newly refurbished, luxurious suites. All feature panoramic views of the still, deep waters and magnificent volcano. Freestanding baths allow views over the lake while soaking. Complimentary mini bar, fruit and snacks are also at hand.
Solitaire Lodge's spectacular position on Lake Tarawera offers many natural experiences directly from the Lodge grounds or jetty including hikes to 65 meter waterfalls, secluded private bays and natural thermal hot springs in which to soak and unwind. Embark on an adventurous scenic helicopter flight over the surrounding volcanic landscape and land on an active volcano, catch a good-sized rainbow trout for your dinner, or explore the tranquil waters in a kayak or motorised dinghy.
