Introduction

Set in the pristine world heritage park of Tongariro, this 106-room property sits at the foot of the elegant Mt Ruapehu.

Opened in 1929, this is a classic hotel that provides old-world elegance alongside the natural magnificence of New Zealand's wilderness. While staying at the beautiful Chateau Tongariro, guests can explore the park on horseback, by quad bike, by kayak, on foot or they can try one of the area's infamous adrenaline sports, such as bungee jumping and sky diving.

The hotel offers a number of amenities to help guests relax while, including a sauna and hot plunge pool, in-house cinema and a challenging 9-hole golf course. The fitness centre is well equipped to keep guests fit even while letting their hair down on a New Zealand holiday.

The Ruapehu Restaurant delivers fine ambiance and all the sophistication expected of the Chateau's elegant traditions. Providing a feast of continental cuisine, suitable dress is required and reservations are essential. The Ruapehu Lounge is a marvellous place to unwind to the sublime sounds of the resident pianist while enjoying a game of billiards. The more casual Pihanga café & T-Bar offers light meals and al fresco dinners, with great views of the mountains and magnificent cocktails after dark.

A selection of rooms is available to guests that range from standard rooms to elegant suites. All rooms are en suites with under-floor heating, hairdryer, mini-bar, TV and tea and coffee making facilities. The more elegant suites are more spacious and include more opulent decoration, while some even include a kitchen area. Family rooms are also available.
