Parenting in the 21st century is not easy – you’re responsible for your children’s happiness, spiritual well-being, learning, health and so on. All while maintaining a clean household, career and who knows what else.

Here at Holiday Inn Rotorua hotel we understand that family holidays need to be relaxing, but that they can also be a playground for adventure and education.

We call it Edventures…

As a hotel dedicated to family-friendly holidays in Rotorua, we have put together a number of initiatives to make your stay the best one possible. Not only do Kids Stay & Eat Free, but we created something we like to call the VIK program – the Very Important Kids program.

Within the program families can save over $300 per child on local Rotorua attractions. Experiences like OGO (rolling down a hill in an inflatable ball), AmazeMe’s hedge maze or even Agrodome’s farm tour. The VIK Program is free – on arrival to Holiday Inn Rotorua hotel you just need to collect your free kid’s wristband on check-in. To receive your discounts show the green band at your chosen attraction – the logos are on the band and you get a detailed booklet explaining each one.

Within the program there are some activities that include great learning opportunities for your children:

Agrodome: A unique farm experience where families can learn about New Zealand animals and feed them.

Offer: One child entry free (12 years and under) with any full paying adult when the VIK wrist band is shown. Excludes Farm Tour, Back Country Adventure and Clysdale.

Rainbow Springs:  Learn about New Zealand’s natural history and come closer than ever to the creatures who call this great land of ours home.

Offer: One child entry free (12 years and under) with any full paying adult. Excludes Kiwi Encounter.

Whakarewarewa Living Maori Village: For some traditional Maori culture, the Whakarewarewa village is a must visit. Taste the unique Maori hangi, take in breathtaking sites of the geothermal activity and learn about the traditional arts of New Zealand.

Offer: 10% discount off all packages.
