Since early last century, the Chateau Tongariro has occupied a special place in the hearts and minds of New Zealanders and visitors from across the globe who have stayed in this famously elegant hotel.

The Chateau Tongariro sits nestled in the shadow of three towering active volcanoes, and at the very foot of the majestic and sacred Mount Ruapehu. The 800 square kilometre Tongariro National Park–a dual listed World Heritage Area – provides a stunning natural playground bursting with diverse landscapes for visitors to the Chateau to discover. With arid badlands, crater and alpine lakes, sparkling rivers, breath-taking lunar landscapes, lush rainforest and alpine meadows to be explored, staying at the Chateau Tongariro is an all-seasons, utterly unique experience not to be missed.

The Chateau itself - a fine example of neo-Georgian sophistication and refinement - is a Category One Heritage Building. Its lavish décor and furnishings, heavenly cuisine and superior standards of service, set against a backdrop of truly remarkable scenery, have created its legacy as a place of magic, refinement and romance unequalled throughout the country.

As you arrive at the Chateau, standing under the grand entrance portico, you know you are somewhere special. Before you, an active volcano looms, dramatic in its beauty. Inside, roaring log fires, the glow of grand chandeliers, sublime cuisine and spectacular mountain views await.

The hotel presents 106 beautiful hotel rooms, an excellent variety of restaurants and bars, a gym, sauna and hot plunge pool, tennis court, a cinema and the highest golf course in New Zealand.

In winter and spring, you’re literally minutes away from exhilarating ski slopes. Year round, you’re on the doorstep of one of nature’s finest playgrounds, amongst the world’s finest wild trout fishing and at the doorstep of ‘New Zealand’s best one day walk’ - the acclaimed Tongariro Alpine Crossing.
