Rotorua, New Zealand
Solitaire Lodge has a spectacular setting on Lake Tarawera with views over to Mount Tarawera, an area steeped in history and beauty.
Solitaire Lodge offers secluded lakeside accommodation and breathtaking views over Lake Tarawera from a lush natural bush setting with a volcanic landscape backdrop. Styled with comfort in mind, the nine luxurious suites all feature views over Lake Tarawera’s still deep waters.
The subtle design of the Suites brings the outdoors in, inviting guests to unwind and relax in a stunning peaceful and tranquil setting. Freestanding bathtubs allow the luxury of such views while soaking. Renowned for its fine dining, the lodge serves contemporary New Zealand cuisine prepared with fresh local produce and complemented by superb wines from selected vineyards. Easy lake access allows exploration of the surrounding waters, secluded private bays, a three hour hike to 65 metre waterfalls and the opportunity to enjoy the therapeutic powers of the naturally occurring thermal hot springs.
Enjoy a pre-breakfast bath in a lakeside natural thermal spring near the site of the now lost Pink and White Terraces. Geothermal activity in this area yields natural thermal pools and a hot stream with bath temperature bathing.

We have been blown away by everything - hotels, food, people, golf, wine - the list is endless. You did an amazing job
Planning a 7 week trip is daunting enough without the complications of COVID cancellations, rebookings, and closures. Yet every connection, every transportation detail, every accommodation, every meal, everything was flawless.
From our arrival in Sydney .. to our last stop in Queenstown .. we will carry with us the best memories of our trip and all of your efforts. The incredible private boat tours .. the bespoke wine tours with the best guides .. our accommodations .. and the excellent itinerary and pacing, made for a perfect trip.
We can't thank Southern Crossings enough for making this trip all, and more, than we had imagined. You allowed us to see the best of your countries: the people, the beauty, the culture. Five stars, a blue ribbon, and a gold medal to everyone at Southern Crossings!
Your country, its people and your team could not have made us feel more welcome.
Thank you for all the special moments you enabled us to experience.
