There is nothing quite like a large outdoor swimming pool- summer or winter, that’s how we roll here. We keep it hot in winter (36-38 degrees) and warm (28-30 degrees) in the summer. Add a few pool toys to ensure the kids are happy and everyone’s a winner.
Free Bike Hire
That’s right, Free Bike Hire?! We’ve got a fleet of cruiser bikes ready for guests to explore Rotorua. Each guest has the chance to take these bikes out for 2 hours free of charge- we think it’s the best way to explore our place!
Relaxing Mineral Pools
We sank the bore so you can soak in the water. Our bore (Bore 716), captures the mineral water from 120 metres below Aura and through a system of pipes, taps and boilers we drip it straight into our mineral pools for you to soak in. That is pretty damn cool. What’s cooler you ask? Well, these mineral waters are world renowned for their therapeutic and curative properties so you’ll feel a million dollars, well at least we hope you will, after a bathe.
BBQ and Steam Box
There is nothing better on a hot summers day than standing around a BBQ with a beverage, it’s even pretty handy cooking some food on it too. If you fancy a large geothermally heated steam box to steam the veggies, we’ve got that covered as well. Throw a couple of picnic tables in, and you’ve got an area designed for enjoyment, friends and family.
Free Unlimited WiFi
Everything in life is best shared, that’s why we give our guests free unlimited ultra-fast Wi-fi. To keep everyone informed of your time at Aura and in Rotorua.
There is nothing like a trampoline to keep the kids (and adults) entertained for hours. Our fully enclosed trampoline is safe for all ages and even has a slide attachment to make coming off just as fun.
Bike Storage and Wash Station
The shed is going up and it is only a matter of time. Know your bike is safely stored away at night and clean to impress everyone in eyesight. This shed had you in mind when we built it.
Geothermal In-Room Heating
There is nothing like a toasty room! It can get a little cold here in the winter and we reckon we have that covered. All of our rooms are geothermally heated which means no cold toes when you are inside. Our bore, located near the back gates, takes the geothermal energy on a journey from 120m below your feet, to heating the water in your room radiators. When you know how our rooms are kept so warm, you can make exceptions for the smell.
We work hard to ensure we know Rotorua, and everything there is to do in Rotorua. Check out our ‘Locals’ wall, packed with great experiences around our region, from the fantastic paid activities and attractions, to the great little walks, best cafes or spot to take that perfect photo. We’ve always got the ideas to fill up your itinerary.
It’s flat, it’s grassy, and it’s great to kick off your shoes, laze about in the sun, kick a ball with the kids, or play a range of our popular games that can be found at the office.
Off Street Parking
We’ve got plenty of off street parking, and parking within a short skip to your room. And if you’ve got something ‘extra sized’, say a trailer, boat or bus, we can even accommodate that.
Located by Room 17, you can find our guest laundry consisting of a washing machine and a dryer. It requires a $2 coin for both machines, but the results…. Now you won’t have to try and use the Rotorua Sulphur smell as an excuse. Laundry powder can also be purchased at the office for $1.
