Vintage beams, previously used as bridge supports in the Mangaroa Valley, frame the entrance to Solitaire Lodge. Canvas shade sails play above, like fantails, to help highlight the pathway and lead guests to the Lodge Reception, Main Lounge and Restaurant where expansive views of Lake Tarawera and mountain backdrop are a key feature. Renowned for its fine dining, Solitaire Lodge serves contemporary New Zealand cuisine prepared with fresh local produce and complemented by superb wines from selected vineyards. Engage in lively conversation with fellow guests in the Lodge’s dining room, or choose an intimate dinner for two in your Suite.
Lodge amenities include complimentary use of the Lodge’s motorised dinghies and kayaks, lake walks along the shoreline of the Lodge grounds, trout fishing from the Lodge jetty and lake swimming from Solitaire’s private beach. Alternatively, enjoy expansive lake views from your Suite balcony or wander through the herb gardens overlooking the lagoon. There are a multitude of bespoke experiences available from the Lodge grounds or nearby download our experiences brochure to help you plan your stay.
