With a wealth of historical, cultural and natural attractions, Rotorua is a single-draw stud on New Zealand's travel scene, but the city is also a thriving business destination. Conveniently located in the central North Island close to Hamilton, Tauranga and Auckland, Rotorua is a hub for business of all kinds, while maintaining a small-city feel that makes it easy to navigate and network. Given the city's thriving business sector, hotels in Rotorua abound near the city centre and provide services custom-designed for business travellers.
What attractions does Rotorua have to offer?
A hotel in Rotorua's city centre is the ideal location for business travellers, since most business in Rotorua takes place around the picturesque shores of Lake Rotorua. Having said this, commercial activity also thrives in the surrounding districts and the city's industrial areas. Business travellers who have a spare few hours may enjoy a peaceful walk or jog around the vast Kuirau Park, perfect for those who enjoy the great outdoors. To enjoy some of the rich regional culture in the area, head to the beautiful Government Gardens, which contain the Rotorua Museum and Tamaki Maori Village.
Why is Rotorua a prime business destination?
From forestry to tourism, manufacturing to agribusiness, Rotorua has an exceptionally diverse economy based on a vast range of goods and services. Largely thanks to Rotorua's position as one of New Zealand's prime tourist destinations, the local infrastructure is well equipped to accommodate and provide for much more than the city's permanent population. Commercial and industrial rates are cheaper than larger New Zealand cities so it is an ideal place for investment and growth. Rotorua also boasts the versatile, 8000sqm Rotorua Energy Events Centre, which can accommodate up to 4000 delegates and hosts various business events year-round.
What else is there to discover with a hotel in Rotorua?
With so many attractions and hotels, Rotorua is one of New Zealand's foremost visitor destinations, and business travellers will find no shortage of things to keep themselves entertained. Try the famous Skyline Rotorua Luge, a fun way to enjoy sensational panoramic views of Rotorua and the surrounding volcanic scenery. Rotorua is also a fantastic place to learn more about New Zealand's indigenous Maori culture, so visit the Tamaki Maori Village right in the city, or the Whakarewarewa Living Maori Village outside town.
