8/10 Very good

We loved the property but would have liked more dining options on site since it’s distant from town

Formidable place secluded yet conveniently located near most attractions of Rotorua. The highlights of our short stay include the sauna and spa near the lake and our breakfast near the fireplace. We will definitely come back to Koura lodge and stay longer.

Peaceful Lakeside Oasis
The lodge faces Rotorua Lake and is a stunning setting. Each day, you see black swans and ducks swimming in the lake. We stayed in Room 1, with perhaps the best lake view and nice porch facing the lake. The room is a little rustic, but clean and decent storage. Marlene (receptionist) was extremely helpful with our late check-in and dinner reservation. Great Breakfast in am.
