Fantastic accommodation near the mighty Tongariro River and at the base of the snowfields. Fishing was excellent and the Tokaanu hot springs were a welcome relief at the end of a cold day. The venison at the Turangi Tavern was superb, and a must try for all meat lovers.

We had such a great time at Turangi. The resort is very nice and clean. The furniture are modern. I got a room with heatpump and it is very nice and warm for a whole unit. Unfortunately my brother's room don't have heatpump but they have oil heater to heat the room up (Not as warm as heatpump). This is...

All the comforts of home in well stocked apartment. Turangi is really suited for outdoor nuts who love walking and fishing but with spa, pool and right in the centre of town is easily accessible to shops,cafe and services. Two level apartment but one bedroom on lower level for vertically challenged.

Older set up apartments but very spacious and the bathrooms are modern with heated flooring and a washer and dryer included in the lodge. Lois is a delight of a woman and brilliant with guests of all ages. Two rec rooms with everything you could ask for as well as spas and mini golf. Great for a family get-away!

This property was great, it was clean, had a fun little mini golf course and indoor games room with ping pong and games. I highly recommend this condo. As it was during the colder months the pool was not heated and freezing so I did not swim, however the spa tubs were great. The location is great for the mountain...

We were in a 2 bedroom apartment with the main bedroom upstairs with an ensuite. The "cabin" is spacious and comfortable. While it is not modern, it is clean and tidy with everything you need for a getaway. Lois, the manager is delightful and so helpful. There is also a great pool. Excellent laundry facilities (free) and a pretty good...

We arrived after hours on a weekend but not a problem to get keys to unit as pre arranged with management. This property exceeded our expectations, full kitchen facility, heated tiled bathroom floor and plenty of spaces to spread out. We stayed in a 2 bedroom unit but didn't need to use the bedroom upstairs as there were a queen...

We enjoyed our time in New Zealand. We were hardly ever in condo except to sleep. Unfortunately, we never had time to use one of the two spas available for your party. Taupo is about 40 minute drive, Rotorua is 1.5 hours away and Waitomo Caves are 2.5 hour drive but all worth it! We stayed in a 3 bedroom...

Heading south so decided to exchange my Labrador, Gold Coast Appartment for one in Turangi. Not knowing what we would do for a week, a bitterly cold week, we have been delightfully surprised with the heated bathroom floors, adventure/activity gathering and lovely staff. We've now booked a river rapid adventure, hot rock massage, dinner at the Tongiraro Lodge and have...

We've stayed here quite a few times, exchanging our timeshare. It's not flashy and modern, but the apartments are comfortable with everything you need. The ones with sofa beds have nice ones - perfectly suitable for real people (even teens)! Lois the manager is super, running a Saturday sausage sizzle where she tells you about the local attractions, and nothing...
