Peppers on the Point

Peppers on the Point is among the more unique hotels in Rotorua, not least thanks to its prized waterfront setting on the shores of Lake Rotorua – with instant access to a small beach and private jetty – though also its historic architecture and traditional interior design.

The building was once a private mansion back in the 1930s, meaning all the suites are suitably large and enjoy fantastic lake views, in keeping with the property’s original layout.

Peppers on the Point then makes a distinct effort to retain some of that regal feel, particularly in the communal areas and dining room which feel like a momentary step back in time, all fireplaces and vintage furniture, wood-panelled walls and decorative chandeliers.

That said, the guestrooms are decidedly more modern with their underfloor heating, spa bathtubs, air-conditioning and fully 21st-century décor, all boasting a private terrace or balcony which is always welcome. Then, with lovely surrounding gardens and several outdoor terraces from which to admire views of Lake Rotorua and Mokoia Island, and immediate access to a small bay and jetty for boat tours, your sense of place is truly set while staying at Peppers on the Point.

You’ll also have easy access to the geothermal highlights of wider Rotorua such as Tikitere, the Waimangu Valley and Pohutu Geyser, yet the hotel itself offers plenty of onsite facilities too. Spa and massage services, tennis courts, a gym and sauna, bikes for hire and a well-stocked library will certainly fill in the gaps between outings and gourmet meals in the main dining room, making Peppers on the Point a super all-round option when visiting the volcanic fields of Rotorua.

Activities and Entertainment

The main attractions of Rotorua – in addition to Lake Rotorua itself – are the geothermal fields and mud pools, geysers, and native foliage that thrives in this unusual environment. Highlights of the Rotorua region include visits to Whakarewarewa; Tikitere – known as ‘Hell’s Gate’; the gorgeous Waimangu Valley; Pohutu Geyser; and hidden Orakei Korako, which is only accessible by boat. You can take an aircraft tour to see it all or hike the thermal field, treating yourself to a well-earned volcanic mud bath or spa treatment once there! Downtime at Peppers on the Point can include enjoying a lakeside massage, relaxing on the terrace with a book from the library or hiring a bike to explore various surrounding trails and villages.

Facilities
