Everything we do at Chateau Tongariro Hotel we believe in providing visitors with a timeless elegance. We believe in preserving history and tradition. Our location within a Dual World Heritage National Park ensures we are advocates for conservation and we uphold a meaningful relationship with local Maori. We acknowledge Ngati Hikairo as traditional custodians of this land. The elegant Chateau Tongariro is located within Whakapapa Village - in the heart of Tongariro National Park and was constructed during the 'roaring twenties' and was also the year that was the beginning of the world's great depression, 1929. Today, the hotel provides accommodation, restaurants, bars, conference facilities and is a popular wedding destination throughout the year.
