My family of 4 stayed here for 9 days. It was our home base for visiting the sights around Rotorua. Beautiful country settings. We stayed in the 2 bedroom unit along the channel, where the black swans and ducks would swim by. The bedrooms and 1 bathroom were upstairs. Beds are firm and comfy. Well maintained unit all in all....

This was our second visit in 2 years, or 2nd and 3rd to be precise, as we stayed for 2 x 2 days in different 2 bed room apartments, separated by one day away on the very interesting Coromandel Peninsula. Some people might find it a little remote, out of town on the NE corner of Lake Rotorua on Hamurana...

The place is quiet and far from the city centre. Nice place people who plan to relax km and have some quiet time. Not really suitable for family as getting food is very far away and there are no restaurant in the hotel premises. The villa or Lodge is fully equipped with kitchen utensils and there are washer and dryer....

Arrival to the resort showed nicely maintained gardens and surrounds, and service from the staff and housekeeping was exceptional, however the resort was let down by the accommodation - everything is poorly constructed - the floors squeak, both upstairs and down - no-one could move without disturbing others - the walls were thin enough to hear conversations in the unit...

We family ( husband with 2 young boys)recently stayed here for the weekend and had the most amazing time. The resort is about 20 minutes out of Rotorua city and is very relaxing and quiet. It felt to get back after a day of adventure and just put our feet up - without the scent of sulphur (synonomous) with Rotorua...

We stayed in a very nice apartment, well equiped with a nice view over the canal that leads to the Ohau Channel. It is about 20 minutes drive north from Central Rotorua. In October it was too cold to use the swimming pool but it looked a very nice set-up.

This place was so nice to visit. The bird life is prolific, I saw a swan and her two babies in the canal. The amenities are nice a little run down, could do with a paint. It is a long way from town, but not a problem if you have a car. It would be nice if the Ramada provided...

We booked the Ramada knowing the brand name - however we were pretty disappointed with what we found. The resort is a long way from town, and there are very limited facilities on site (we looked at the café menu, but it wasn't impressive) so we spent a lot of time driving. The biggest disappointment was the wifi. I had...

This is a lovely resort in a quiet, rural location right on the inlet between the two lakes. Fabulous fly-fishing opportunities which we watched from the veranda of the club house. This is an Asian type bistro serving wonderful fresh food, superbly seasoned. Good prices well presented dishes in an ambient environment. Friendly service too! The only down-side was the...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Rotorua is truly like no other destination. It's a fascinating mix of culture, adventure and relaxation. Renowned for being a hotbed of thermal activity, Rotorua's hot springs and spas make it the perfect getaway for pampering, stress-release and rejuvenation. At the same time it's also a place where you can truly get the heart pumping. Adrenalin-raising adventures punctuate the Rotorua landscape from thrilling luge rides, white water rafting and even rolling down a hill in a giant translucent ball (zorbing). If all that's not enough for you, then you also have an area rich in Maori history and culture and friendly locals to walk you through it all. Located just 20 minutes outside the city to ensure your getaway is relaxing, WorldMark Resort Rotorua is the perfect base for whatever brings you to this simply wonderful area of New Zealand. With apartments sleeping 4-6 people in 2 and 3 bedroom apartments and lodges (utilising double sofa bed in living room), your stay will feel like your home-away-from-home. Located on the edge of the lake, the resort offers beautiful views right over the Ohau Channel. You can kayak your way back to your room or picnic at the parklands located right within the resort. If fishing is more your thing you'll be in heaven - the area is rich in fisheries and you'll be able to throw in a line from one of the various resort banks. The apartments include all modern conveniences, with the resort also boasting outdoor swimming pool, heated spa, gymnasium and a tennis court. ... more   less
