Ruapehu Lounge

The historic heart of Chateau Tongariro Hotel, the Ruapehu Lounge brings yesteryear to life with plush velvet, twinkling chandeliers and a crackling log fire. Clinking cocktail glasses and clacking billiards fill the air as guests reunite for family holidays, business retreats and wedding parties. The lounge serves light food and drinks until late at night.

Our latest menu offerings are just a click away.

Chateau High Tea marks a decades-old tradition of meeting for champagne, finger sandwiches, delicate sweets and gourmet fresh teas. Piano melodies float through the lounge, lingering at the floor-to-ceiling arched Ngauruhoe Window, framing the snow-capped mountains.
