Solitaire Lodge is one of Rotorua’s most luxurious accommodation options, occupying a beautiful and tranquil position overlooking Lake Tarawera. It has 10 elegant guest suites, all designed to make the most of the panoramic views, with floor to ceiling windows and glass doors that open out on to a private balcony. Each room has a king-size bed and a seating area and guests can enjoy a complimentary mini-bar as well as freshly baked goods each day. The lodge is renowned for its fine dining and offers a seasonally inspired breakfast, lunch and dinner menu created largely from fresh, local produce by the in-house chefs. A picnic lunch can be provided for those planning to spend the day out and about, but for those eating in the sunny deck is the perfect place to enjoy leisurely meal, with matched wines if required. There is an in-house spa and the lodge staff are happy to advise on and organise local activities and tours.
