A romantic getaway can be the perfect way to celebrate a special occasion, anniversary or honeymoon. In New Zealand, we are fortunate in that we can reach a number of regional destinations within a couple of hours. Rotorua, is one such centrally located and highly popular destination that many New Zealanders flock to each year to enjoy time with a loved one. From Auckland it is a smooth 3 hour drive and from Wellington it will take approximately 5-6 hours. Alternatively, you can arrive at Rotorua’s airport via a domestic flight. If the latter option is more desirable you can arrange Rotorua car hire from a local provider, giving you the freedom and flexibility to explore this culturally rich region.
With romantic getaways we often envisage luxury and pampering. All this is supplied in abundance in Rotorua. With the natural hot spring pools and thermal mud treatments to mention a few, you can find local attractions such as the Polynesian Spa located on Hinemoa Street that overlook the beautiful Lake Rotorua. Car hire makes for an affordable and convenient way of getting around the city. Relying on taxi or bus transportation can become expensive and rigid.
An essential component of arranging a romantic getaway is the accommodation. Finding a luxurious lodge in Rotorua is easy. Hosts of luxury accommodation in Rotorua have created truly beautiful places to stay. A quick search online will reveal this. One gorgeous place to consider, located in the stunning countryside is Hamurana Lodge. This luxurious hotel is only a short 15 minute drive from the city and is easy to find with your Rotorua car hire. Better yet, Hamurana Lodge has its own sanctuary spa with a range of packages to choose from.
If you enjoy outdoor walking you will both love taking advantage of a hike around one of the nearby lakes such as Lake Waikaremoana or one of the local national parks such as Te Urewera National Park and Tongariro National Park. Again, this is where Rotorua car hire is favorable, allowing you to visit these local attractions in your own time.
If you are planning to visit Rotorua in September 2011 for a romantic getaway, you have the added bonus of going to one of the Rugby World Cup matches. Three games are being played at the stadium including: Saturday September 10th – Fiji v Namibia, Wednesday September 14th – Samoa v Namibia, and Sunday September 25th – Ireland v Russia.
We advise you to book your luxury accommodation and Rotorua car hire in advance to avoid disappointment. Rotorua is popular place with both domestic and international travellers, but a location absolutely perfect for a romantic getaway.
