Locally known as Sulphur City, Rotorua is New Zealand’s thermal wonderland.  The local Maori population believe that the region’s hot springs and geysers are sacred, and millions of tourists each year are drawn to the city. It’s one of the most popular destinations in New Zealand, and its abundant neon lit hotels have earned it the nickname Roto-vegas.

As well as the famous hot springs, Rotorua also offers plenty in the way of Maori art and culture. It’s one of the best places in New Zealand to try the traditional Maori feast, the Hangi. An earth oven is used to cook the food, adding interesting smoky and earthy flavours to the meat. Lots of places offer Hangi, and some also have concerts and folk dancing after the meal. Maori art and crafts are widely available, so you’ll have plenty of opportunities to pick up unique souvenirs.

Hotels in Rotorua are a great base for adventure travellers. There are lots of great parks for hiking, forests for mountain biking, and adrenaline pumping activities on offer like zorbing and whitewater rafting.

Most of the accommodation in Rotorua is budget friendly, and there are plenty of great mid-range hotels too. If you’re looking for a no-frills international chain, a trendy apartment, or a cheap and cheerful motel, you’ll find a great selection of places to stay in and around Rotorua. Luxury travellers will also find plenty of high-end hotels to choose from, with a range of five star spa hotels. Some of the spas in Rotorua use waters from the natural springs, perfect if you want to make your trip extra special.
