3 Day Romance in Rotorua
3 Day Romance in Rotorua
Experience the romance of flying in a floatplane whilst enjoying the unique and spectacular views of this geothermal area on this 3-day luxury lakeside getaway.
Your floatplane will collect you from the private lake jetty of your luxury hotel & whisk you away to Mt Tarawera. This volcano last erupted in 1886. It lasted 5 hours, destroying the world famous pink and white terraces, regarded as the eighth wonder of the world and New Zealand’s first tourist attraction. It also devastated the surrounding landscape and villages and resulted in a loss of 150 lives. It created an 8km rift along its summit which is only fully appreciated when viewed from above. Continue your flight south, past the steaming cliffs and the hot lakes of the Waimangu Volcanic Valley. You’ll also fly over the Blue and Green Lakes, the geysers of the Whakarewarewa Thermal Reserve and Rotorua City itself before setting down once more outside the Black Swan. Approximate flying time is 30 minutes.
The Black Swan Lakeside Boutique Hotel is a beautifully appointed 5 star property that fuses classic sophistication and contemporary chic to create a thoroughly modern and uniquely luxurious lakefront hotel with personalised lodge style service. The expansive grounds include rose gardens, sweeping lawns, swimming pool, sauna, secret grotto, sandy beach, private jetty and heli-pad. The eight luxurious rooms are beautifully appointed with stunning views over the lake or gardens. All rooms offer individual fireplaces, complimentary WiFi, air conditioning, in-room safes, mini bars, high definition flat screen TVs, iPod dock stations, DVD players, espresso machines, high quality linen, feather comforters & pillows, Citta Design bathrobes, FCUK bath products, monsoon rain showers, solid stone soaker baths, heated mirrors and fully tiled bathrooms with under-floor heating.
Breakfast is served in the upstairs dining room from 7am to 10am with divine views out across the lake and the candlelit dinner is served from 6pm starting with canapés and a taste of New Zealand wines followed by a delicious 4 course dinner. Although situated in a serene lakeside setting, The Black Swan is only a 5 minute drive from Rotorua city centre and within close proximity of Rotorua’s many attractions.
The geothermal region of Rotorua has enchanted visitors from all over the world for more than 160 years. There are numerous optional activities to enjoy during your leisure time including trout fishing, mountain biking, golf, luge riding, visits to thermal reserves to name but a few. A traditional Maori hangi (feast) and cultural show is highly recommended if you have time.

FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions
You won’t pay more by booking your short break holiday with Relaxing Journeys. We have access to discounted industry rates and special deals, only available to those in the travel trade. So the amount we make on each short break, is the difference between these rates and retail rates that you would pay if you booked it all yourself. Of course, you also get peace of mind that all is organised professionally and you get our fantastic service thrown in! There will be occasions where a property may release a ‘walk in’ deal that may better our quote, however our prices are the best available at the time of booking.
Your dedicated tour consultant will email you through a quote. If it looks good, then full payment is required to confirm the booking (within 45 days) or a deposit of $100 per person is required outside this period. This must be paid by credit card (Visa or Mastercard only). We do not charge credit card fees on our short break packages. If the properties listed in the holiday package are unavailable at this time, we will provide you with alternatives until you are happy.
We welcome bookings from anywhere in the world. You can see how much each package is using our currency converter on this page. Only the New Zealand Dollar (NZ$) prices on this site are accurate.

Some short break packages do not include (or may not require) a hire car, or internal flights. Relaxing Journeys can organise these extras for you and include them in your quote if you wish – or you can just book the short break ‘as is’, and organise everything else yourself.

Once your deposit has been paid and you have received your deposit confirmation, we will organise your short break and when completed (normally within 48 hours) we will email you confirmation. When you pay your balance (45 days before the start date) we will email you a ‘Short Break Voucher’ shortly after along with your arrival information and everything else you need. Print this off and take it with you to NZ.
