A classic lodge-style hotel, Peppers on the Point is all about intimate luxury. This pretty lakeside property is so secluded that it only has a handful of rooms to choose from, not to mention a private beach affording uninterrupted views of mystical Mokoia Island.

Peppers on the Point

214 Kawaha Point Road
Industry rating:

Once a 1930s family mansion, Peppers on the Point is now a hotel like no other, a peaceful lakefront gem set amid a distinctive landscape of active volcanoes, shooting geysers and boiling mud pools. Sip fine New Zealand wines at the lodge’s onsite restaurant, not to mention the highlight: preliminary drinks and canapés followed by a gourmet four-course d'hôte dinner. Foodie bliss. The suites and villas are equally blissful; spacious, uniquely charming with spa baths and unmatched views across the iconic Lake Rotorua.

Why we recommend Peppers on the Point

  • Private retreat with just six suites, two lake cottage suites and, on application a four-bedroom villa of two-bedroom apartment
  • Drinks and canapés by the fire or on the terrace before dinner each night
  • Chef Craig Martin voted Outstanding Chef of the Year for two consecutive years at the Rotorua Hospital Awards
  • Fish for rainbow trout from the Peppers on the Point jetty
  • Onsite gym and massage or beauty treatments available
