We were lucky enough to visit the Rotorua District this week and while we were there we checked out the VR Group’s latest project on the beautiful Lake Rotoiti, only 15 minutes drive from central Rotorua. Since taking over the resort last year they have renovated their rooms and made plans to paint inside and out by spring, making this a perfect contender for destination weddings this upcoming season.
As well as being situated on the picture perfect lake front this resort has many other attributes including onsite restaurant, pool and spa, tennis court, kayaks, a boat to take the ladies out for a morning at the secluded thermal pools or a spot of afternoon fishing for the blokes. As well as plenty of outdoor tables and grass area to play or relax on by the lake.
Wedding packages start at only $87 per head making it a really affordable option for a destination wedding. A bridal suite is complementary with any package and the resort offers a room rate of $150* no matter the room type or amount of guests. The resort also offers a free shuttle service making it so easy to collect guests from the city or the nearby airport. The resort can cater for up to 100 guests for a seated dinner or more with the addition of a marquee which on a beautiful summer’s day would be my first choice. You could even choose to arrive by helicopter taking in the surrounding sights on the way.
I really see the venue as a perfect solution for those wanting to make a weekend of the wedding experience and take in the sights and attractions Rotorua and the resort has to offer, especially for families. We are happy to work with any clients at this venue with wedding planning or styling services to make your wedding experience easy and most importantly memorable.
