More to explore

It can be a bit of a cluster trying to navigate the what, when, where and how of a family holiday, but so worth the memories and good times when you nail it. Let us give you some ideas.

What about finding accommodation with the thrill of adventure never far away? Well – Ripple has Rotorua’s must-do attractions right on our doorstep. Located across from Skyline Rotorua’s gondola, luge and MTB tracks, we’re also within walking distance from Canopy Tours, Zorb, Kiwi Hatchery and Mitai Maori Village. Town, the forest, lakes and many more activities are also an easy 10 minute drive away.

We’ve got onsite entertainment too for the small and big kids alike, including mini golf and games room, year-round swimming in our heated pool and spa, and buckets of areas to explore around our nature-filled property.

What about large, spacious and varied room types to fit all family numbers and dynamics? Ripple has those too, from spacious studio units to even larger fully-equipped, three-bedroom family apartments, private hot tubs and everything in between.

Fancy some downtime blobbing in front of the TV after a busy day adventuring? Ripple has lots of channels to choose from, including Sky TV, Netflix and great wifi for streaming, well, whatever.

What about a top-rated restaurant on Trip Advisor right outside your door? Yip, we’ve got that covered too – The Brook offers a modern, fresh seasonal menu in an intimate setting right onsite. With Al fresco dining overlooking the stream in the summer months, to cozying up next to the fireplace in winter, your tastebuds and senses will both be singing. Oh, they also do breakfast delivery right to your door.

And when the kids are fed and finally down, how about relaxing in a private hot tub with a drink, listening to the bubbling Waiowhiro Stream as it meanders through the property?

To top it all off, our welcoming and friendly staff will treat you like one of the extended family, giving you the down-low on those local secret spots so you can experience everything our beautiful city has to offer.

Sounds like we’ve got all your bases covered, so come on over.
