Take a journey to Mount Tutu Eco-Sanctuary. Enter a special world nestled in Native Rainforest. A secluded peaceful retreat, 1,000 feet above sea level, with pure spring waters. Away from the city, we enjoy crystal clear night skies! Our rainforest paradise, Mount Tutu Eco-Sanctuary, is an eco-lodge and a Nature Retreat with unique accommodation units we call Whare. Guests receive an evening Glow-Worm tour, enjoy Bush Walks, experience feeding the unique Mount Tutu Sheep, wander our expansive woodland/water gardens and experience the magic of being in a rainforest/bird sanctuary and wake to the sound of the native dawn chorus every morning. Mount Tutu Eco-Sanctuary is a Protected (QEII National Trust) and Hidden Paradise with trees over 500 years old.
Only 40 minutes from Rotorua, New Zealand's Thermal Wonderland of Geysers and Bubbling Mud! Include Mount Tutu Eco-Sanctuary in your Winter Ski Holiday to Mount Ruapehu. We often also provide an evening concert and Full Breakfast.
