Koura Lodge, Rotorua, New Zealand

Koura Lodge sits on the edge of Lake Rotorua and enjoys stunning views from its ten well-appointed rooms. Recently refurbished, the European-influenced building has contemporary, light rooms and excellent en suite facilities. There is a separate guest area with internet access and tea and coffee making facilities, and breakfast is served in the impressive dining room with views down the gardens to the lake.
