With only eight villas and four suites set amongst 2,500 acres of pristine Rotorua wilderness, Treetops Lodge is a truly private and luxurious escape.

Tucked away in a native forest some 800 years old, this award-winning lodge is the ultimate back-to-nature retreat where you can be free of the hectic pace of modern life. Whilst it is a great place for quiet reflection and relaxation, those with an adventurous spirit will also find crystal-clear streams to fish in, waterfalls to visit, lakes to kayak on and 35 miles of hiking trails to explore. The lodge also offers its guests a selection of guided ‘Signature Experiences’ – including learning about native Maori cuisine on a food trail – as well as adrenaline-fuelling heli-adventures and access to a superb 18-hole golf course. 

With an elegant architectural design, the lodge uses warm tones and wood and stone finishes to reflect and complement the beauty of its natural surroundings. The Lodge Wing in the Main Lodge has four well-appointed suites, and is entirely self-contained with large dining and sitting areas – perfect for families or groups. Alternatively, Treetops also has a selection of separate and secluded villas which are ideal for those seeking more privacy.
