Tihi Retreat

9 guests · 3 bedrooms · 3.5 baths
Let soaring mountains, green forests, and shimmering lakes inspire you at this stylish hilltop home in Rotorua, New Zealand. The wrap-around deck is a perfect place to work on your tan, do some grilling, and dine alfresco with friends and family. After an Espresso at the breakfast bar, set out to Lake Rotorua, the Waitomo Caves, or Tongariro National Park. 
A classic black-and-white color scheme sets a chic tone, especially against the striking greens and blues the Rotorua Basin. Exotic timber decking outlines Tihi’s interior. Wall-to-wall openings let you flow as freely as the breeze, adding a refreshing element to social occasions. In the kitchen, let your culinary creativity run wild, top of the line stainless steel appliances are waiting to assist. 
Stretch out on the sofa by the gas fireplace and settle in for a movie night with the family. When the kids are in bed, make your way out the terrace and do some star gazing, they are amazing in New Zealand. If you’ve decided to stay in contact with the real world, Wi-Fi and Smart TVs will help. If not, walk down the steps to sun loungers and lose yourself in a good book or podcast. 
Craving some excitement? Jump out of a plane, shoot some rapids, or carve a path down a snow-covered mountain, extreme sports a way of life in New Zealand. For something a little more relaxing, check out the mud baths and hot springs at Hell’s Gate or stroll along the boardwalk at the geothermal park in Rotorua’s city center. Sunsets are incredible from the park.
