Superior Chalets

Great views towards Tongariro volcanic peaks. Colours and natural fibres pick up on the rustic earth tones that define the World Heritage Park. All furnishings and joinery have been custom crafted to create open and inviting spaces. After a day of discovery comfortable bedding and bright and inviting bathroom facilities will ensure more than just a good night's sleep.

Fully Refurbished interior and exterior January 2011 to a high standard.

"The bungalows are brand new and very tastefully furnished. There is nothing missing and we should have stayed another night. The type and style of bungalow is a real benchmark for every lodge."

Motel Apartments

All the creature comforts of home with views out over ancient native forest, wild farm land and distant peaks.  That ‘sound’ you may hear at night is possibly a Kiwi as a nesting ground is adjacent to Discovery. The motels are nicely situated to take in Tongariro's stunning sunsets which are regularly enjoyed.

All units have large windows to bring in maximum natural light and to take full advantage of the restful views.

"...the studio motel room we stayed was well above our expectation. It was warm, clean and comfortable, with a huge picture window and a great view..."

"... We fell in love with the place (Discovery) immediately and haven’t stayed anywhere else since then. I think the most important attraction Discovery Lodge had for us was the privacy. The cabins are like having your own mini ski chalet to yourself, and at night the silence is heaven! ... "
