Lake Rotoroa Lodge Joins Heritage Boutique Collection


The Heritage Boutique Collection welcomes Lake Rotoroa Lodge, the fourth South Island hotel to join the Collection.

Lake Rotoroa Lodge is 90 minutes drive or a short helicopter ride from Nelson and is set in the Nelson Lakes National Park at the northern tip of the Southern Alps.

The luxury lodge’s isolated and idyllic lake side location is surrounded by vast hectares of forest and offers guests stunning views over Lake Rotoroa to the towering peaks of the Travers Range.

“We are delighted to welcome this world class lodge to the Heritage Boutique Collection. The lodge is the most expansive property in our inventory, covering over 1500 hectares. We are excited to offer this unique location to our guests, for either a leisure visit or a corporate retreat,” says Ronnie Ronalde, group development manager of the Heritage Hotel Management Ltd.

The two storey lodge was built in the early 1920s in an Edwardian style with charming details of the Victorian era.

Each guest room is a wonderful mix of old and new with huge antique brass beds covered in cosy continental quilts and convenient en-suite bathrooms.

One of the key attributes of a stay at Lake Rotoroa Lodge is the culinary experience with sumptuous breakfasts and gourmet dinners served in the elegant dining room. Guests can choose from a well stocked wine cellar for the perfect wine accompaniment to an outstanding meal. Picnic hampers can also be prepared for the day of adventure and discovery or lunch can also be prepared on site.

Guest reviews always rate the lodge hosts and staff as extraordinarily hospitable. Often guests will join the lodge chef as the meal is prepared to learn tips on preparing the excellent local ingredients of seafood, venison, lamb and seasonal berries, fruits and vegetables.

Guests can also relax on the lodge lawn by the Gowan River, rich with brown trout to tempt anglers. The lodge has everything an angler would need, with full sets of wading and fishing equipment at the ready and 30 rivers in easy reach to fish from.

Other activities are available at the lodge from nature experiences walking the lodge’s extensive trails for bird and wildlife watching, bike or horse riding and white water rafting. Wine tasting, arts and crafts artisan visits, beauty spa experiences and a golf course are also nearby.

“Guests staying at Lake Rotoroa Lodge will experience the relaxing ambiance of the Heritage Boutique Collection which presents the ultimate in hospitality, superior facilities and professional standards. Each guest is promised the warmest welcome, providing a truly relaxing and memorable experience appealing to all five senses,”
adds Ronalde.
