Best romantic little spot in Rotorua
Koura lodge was amazing. We had a great stay and the amazing staff were more than accommodating to our jet lag. We will definitely be returning and could not recommend it enough. The spa on the lake is beautiful. Thank you to the staff and management for making our stay so special

Quiet relaxing retreat
Very nice location on the lake edge and very quiet at night. We even heard a morepork calling on the second night. We were greeted at the front door on arrival, which made a great first impression. The breakfast service was also excellent. The shared areas (kitchen, spa pool, sauna) were all well looked after and very clean - as was the room. We liked everything about this place except the bed which had a damaged mattress making our 2 nights very uncomfortable and it was disappointing it wasn't replaced after the first night when we made the staff aware of the problem.
