Dating back to 1903, Te Rūnanga Tea House is one of Rotorua’s most nostalgic venues. Located within the heart of the picturesque Government Gardens and adjacent to Rotorua city centre, Te Rūnanga (The Meeting House) combines quaint charm with historical character. Built as a tea pavillion in 1903, Te Rūnanga served as a social centre for spa facilities where visitors could relax early last century. Its location, combined with its charm and character, means the venue attracts many smaller conference and incentive groups seeking something extra special. Te Runanga is the perfect spot for incentive and executive dinners and a favourite for retreats, cocktail events and weddings.
