A beautifully appointed lodge on the banks of Lake Rotorua with great views and private jetty. The disappointment of driving into the somewhat sad tourist town of Rotorua with its half empty shops and run down feel were soon dissipated by the beautiful Koura Lodge with its well appointed rooms, stunning gardens and friendly welcome. Only 10 minutes to the...

This is a lodge style get away on the lake in Rotorua. The view is brilliant. Wood construction rooms so the sound insulation is not the best. Conversations and TV sounds as well as people walking on the wooden boards carry through to the room. Ok if you are not sleeping in. The managers are delightful and so obliging it...

We choose Koura Lodge to celebrate our 35th wedding anniversary and we thoroughly enjoyed out stay. Our room was lovely, comfortable, quiet and very clean with a gorgeous view over the lake. Our hosts: Kim and Gavin were very attentive, friendly and professional. We hope to stay there again before too long.

As we approached the Lodge through what felt like a residential area we were slightly apprehensive however Koura Lodge proved to be quite a find. We were only there for one night but the rooms are lovely, very large with French windows opening onto decking overlooking the lake. The waters edge is about 15 m away. There is complementary use...

This is one place where the website doesn't lie!! It really is as magnificent as it looks in the pictures - actually, it's better because you can't hear the bird song in the mornings, watch the sun glisten on the lake, watch the antics of the ducks and swans in the shallows, and smell the delicious breakfast dishes that manager...

We spend 2 nights at the Koura Lodge at xmas. There were few guests around that time, so it was very calm, and it felt like we had the whole place for ourselves. Nice lodge in a gorgeous location, with several facilities (sauna, heated outside jacuzzi just by the lake, kayaks). Rooms are spacious. The hosts are very nice. A...

This is great place to relax with very friendly and helpful staff. Beautiful location on the waterfront in a quiet area. The staff were very helpful in finding restaurants and helping you decide what toy wanted to do. Local advise was very helpful as there is so much to do in the area.

This is just a note of thanks on behalf of my family and friends and of course yours truly. In fact BIG and many thanks for making your Lodge seem like it was the “Burtenshaw’s Lodge.
