Rotorua is a favorite New Zealand vacation destination. This gorgeous area is known for its pristine gin-clear lakes and hot springs. The largest and most well-known lake is Lake Rotorua, but Lake Tarawera is nearly as large and just as beautiful.

If you’re looking for the best luxury accommodation Rotorua offers, check out these three stunning Lake Tarawera homes. Lake Tarawera is the largest lake surrounding volcanic Mount Tarawera, which erupted in 1886. It’s one of the most beautiful and remote lakes in the region. It’s so remote and peaceful that cell service doesn’t always work. Don’t worry; our holiday homes all feature Wi-Fi so you can stay connected.

Lake Tarawera is known for its deep, clear, cool waters. This provides an ideal habitat for the highly sought rainbow trout. Many of the trout in Lake Tarawera exceed four and a half kilograms (ten pounds). Bring your boat, fish from the shore, or hire a charter boat to enjoy fishing on the lake.

Te Rata (Hot Water Beach) is a hot spot, both figuratively and literally. A thermal stream trickles into Lake Tarawera, and steam rises from the lake’s edge. Soak in the natural hot springs while enjoying the lake views. Take the water taxi to experience this unique hot spot.

The Tarawera Trail is a popular walk that takes visitors to gorgeous lake views, over streams, and through native bush.

If you want to treat yourself to a restaurant dinner, check out The Landing Cafe, which overlooks Lake Tarawera. Enjoy lunch, dinner, or ice cream.

Our Lake Tarawera properties are 20 to 30 minutes from Rotorua. Rotorua has fabulous bike trails, walks, fine dining, and world-class entertainment. If its raining, don’t despair, there’s still plenty to do in Rotorua in the rain.

You’ll also be close to Lake Okareka, Lake Rotoiti, Lake Okataina, and Lake Rotoma.
