Nicara Lakeside Lodge, on the shores of Lake Rotorua, a spacious and welcoming 5 star luxury Bed and Breakfast offering a full cooked breakfast, served alfresco in summer. Substantial art collection, spacious lakeside grounds enable floatplane and boat pickups, close to many tourist attractions, yet away from sulphur smells.

The guest rooms are either king or twin configuration. Each has lake views, free internet access, refrigerator, well-appointed ensuite, in room DVD viewing, iPod docking station and much more.

There are many areas in the lodge in which to relax in the sun, read or catch up on emails. Guests gather each evening by the schist fireplace or on the deck to meet, enjoy nibbles and savour New Zealand wines, or just chat before going to a Maori cultural show or to one of the 100 restaurants within 9km of Nicara Lodge.

Heather and Mike are always available to assist you in these matters. Their local and New Zealand knowledge is very widespread and they love to ensure you experience the best of their region. Rotorua offers geothermal mud pools and geysers; Maori culture; adventure tourism; trout fishing; golf; mountain biking, walking or tramping and many beautiful lakes.
