Imagine yourself breathing in mountain air and enjoying the clear waters of the Tongariro National Park from your cycle friendly base at the Skotel Alpine Resort, the highest hotel in New Zealand.
Treat yourself at a alpine retreat nestled in the tussock on the edge of the Whakapapa Village in the heart of the Tongariro National Park. Skotel's wood dÃ©cor will allow you to appreciate the natural wonder of the Tongariro National Park.
After an exciting day skiing, tramping, mountain biking or exploring come back to the Skotel and relax in the sauna and spa pool, unwind at the Terrace Bar by the fire, or enjoy dinner at the Terrace Restaurant.
At the Skotel we give you the opportunity to design your own adventure from accommodation to activities with all the information available and friendly staff to assist in organizing it for you. We're the ideal place to base yourself whilst mountain biking in Ruapehu.
