Milestone Events

From time to time there are occasions in our lives that we want to honour. Whether it’s a milestone birthday celebration, a wedding anniversary, family reunion, or any kind of special occasion, Chateau Tongariro Hotel offers the ultimate venue.

Celebrate your birthday in timeless elegance. Every birthday is special, but some require an intimate touch. Our opulent Ruapehu Room Restaurant offers extensive a la carte, set menu, and buffet dining options for smaller groups, as well as catering for larger groups in our function spaces for an extra special event.

Anniversaries are always special, be it a wedding anniversary, business anniversary, retirement celebration or another milestone year you want to mark, we have beautiful function spaces and catering options to celebrate any occasion.


Bring everyone together in our stunning central North Island location. Gather your family, graduating class, or get the childhood friends back together for old time’s sake. Nestled in the heart of the Tongariro National Park, there are stunning walks for all abilities, from 10-minute nature walks to the Tongariro Crossing, New Zealand’s highly esteemed day walk. You’ll find many exciting and entertaining activities in the surrounding areas for everyone to enjoy.

The Chateau Tongariro Hotel boasts several function spaces offering flexibility for all events, whether your gathering is an intimate group of five or a larger scale celebration for 150. With 106 well-appointed accommodation rooms, we offer something that will meet all tastes and budgets.

We also understand that a quality meal is an absolute must to mark a special occasion. Our team of talented chefs can create bespoke group menus with decadent dishes made with aroha (love). Whether it’s our a la carte menu in the Ruapehu Room, a private buffet for your group, or platters and nibbles at cocktail hour, our delectable dishes are sure to impress.
