In close proximity to the edge of Whakarewarewa Forest (aka the Redwoods), overlooking the glistening waters of Whakarewarewa Thermal Valley, and surrounded by nature’s best work, people come to Rydges Rotorua from the world over.
From intimate to elaborate, work to play, and day to night, we have seven flexible spaces that will put the ease back into planning an event to remember for all the right reasons. Our large conference venue can comfortably host up to 600 people, while our small meeting room is the perfect place to crunch the numbers and get down to business with your colleagues.

Onsite at the hotel is the famed Chapman’s Restaurant buffet. Wherever you go in Rotorua, you’ll hear about our buffet – from fresh oysters, varied seafood delicacies, succulent roasts or decadent desserts, it’s a buffet experience unlike any other and is inspired by a range of Pasifika flavours and international cuisine.
