  • Nice place where we stopped for lunch but do not forget to protect you from sand flies. Horrible. One week after the itch was always there.

  • Rotoiti is a wonderful, peaceful place. Well worth the visit. A must-see are the hot springs, only accessible by boat.

  • Awesome Central North Island lake. Warm in summer.
  • One of the most beautiful places in the country. Pretty amazing to stay in a house right on the water with a private jetty.
  • Great place but water is cool
  • Clean and good fishing
  • Lake Rotoiti in New Zealand is a wonderful place to visit. Fantastic views of the water falls, full of natural scenery all around, nice weather conditions, lakes surrounded by mountains, all very pleasant sights. Calm and clean lakes water with arrangements for boating makes this place fabulous.
