Solitaire Lodge

Solitaire Lodge, one of New Zealand’s premiere luxury lodges, enjoys breathtaking views over Lake Tarawera, with lush natural bush and volcanic landscape backdrop.

Styled with comfort in mind, all 9 luxurious suites feature panoramic views over Lake Tarawera’s still, deep waters. Freestanding baths allow views over the lake while soaking. Complimentary mini bar, fruit and snacks are also at hand, as guests comfort is always a priority.

Easy lake access allows exploration of surrounding waters including secluded private bays, or try a three hour hike to 65 meter waterfall and natural thermal hot springs in where your trek will be rewarded with a blissful soak. Embark on an adventurous scenic helicopter flight over the surrounding volcanic landscape and land on an active volcano. We recommend wetting a line, as you could catch a good sized rainbow trout for dinner, or simply explore the tranquil waters in a kayak or motorized dinghy.

Solitaire Lodge is a perfect place to be as active as you like, or to simply relax, indulge and rejuvenate, left in the able hands of your warm, friendly New Zealand hosts.
