Attractions & Activities in Rotorua
When you stay Rydges, you stay local, and there’s nothing quite like a truly local experience.
I would highly recommend a visit to the Secret Spot!
The shinny dip with a coffee or drink after either a walk in the forest or a mountain bike ride is a local’s favourite activity. The complimentary “shinny dip” has you sit back and soak those tired legs in our awesome mini cedar hot tubs on the boardwalk.
Be sure to tag us on social media @rydgeshotels to share your local experiences with us.
There’s always plenty to do
Rotorua is the ultimate escape – one that leaves guests bright-eyed, revitalised and awake to new possibilities. From glorious mornings and nights alive with dazzle, it’s a place that brings the true warmth of a friendly welcome. Take your pick from natural wonders, kids activities, cultural immersion and everything in between.
Many people know Rotorua for its incredible landscape and this lakeside town is bursting with opportunities to experience it all. Take your pick between geothermal pools, serene treetop walks and a nature park brimming with kiwis – the feathered kind. For a unique view of it all, why not make your way up to the summit of Mount Ngongotaha on the gondola and back down again on the luge.
Rotorua is quite possibly the best destination to immerse yourself in the heart of Maori culture and tradition. The Tūhourangi Ngāti Wāhiao people have been sharing their unique way of life at Whakarewarewa with visitors from across the world for over two hundred years.
