Luxury holiday house on the very top of Rotorua, enough said.
And still I believe that above sentence itself is severely insufficient to describe our stay at Tihi Retreat.
We made the booking months in advance and our breath was taken away when we arrived.
Steve, the owner, gladly showed us around the house and patiently explained every aspect of the place, from the switches to the operational instructions of the appliances.
The house is literally on top of Rototrua, offering a 360 degrees view of the town. One can see the Rotorua lake in all its beauty at different time of the day. The Geysers at Te Puia is also clearly visible.
The view was even more breathtaking upon nightfall when the town transformed into a sea of shimmering lights with stars blanketing the skies.
The rooms were all nicely designed and made, ensuring every guest a comfortable sleep through the night.
The living area, kitchen, fireplace makes for an excellent gathering area for our group to dine, wine and wind down the evening.
For one, I now know of only one accommodation choice in the whole of Rotorua and I assure you nothing in this town will ever come close to Tihi Retreat.
You missed it, your loss.
Tihi Retreat is by far the best place that I have ever stayed. It has amazing views over all of Rotorua and is equipped with the newest and smartest equipment that I have ever seen. Steve has gone to amazing lengths to provide a truly wonderful experience. It is pricey but you really get what you pay for. Would totally recommend this to anyone who wants somewhere special to stay whist in Rotorua. We rented it as a family with small kids but it would equally work well as a place to rent with friends if you didnt have kids.

Perched on a hill top with 270 degrees unobstructed views of the lake and mountains in a quiet residential cul de sac, this is a true relax and rejuvenate retreat. With piped music all over the house and rocking sound system in the living area, it transform can transform into a party pad! There are 3 bedrooms and 6 TVs! Inviting outdoor seating and a comprehensive music library on the iPad. The choice of all materials and that wonderfully comfortable bed is top notch. Steve has made this home as one would for their own and not with a commercial motive. A place Conde naste needs to cover. Thank you Steve for a lifetime memory holiday!
