Rotorua’s longest established backpackers. We are a family run business with great facilities and helpful service.
Good value for money, spacious, modern and clean.
In the eighties Doug picked up hitchhikers as they travelled
around New Zealand. Coming into Rotorua they had no where to
stay. An idea ignited and Kiwi Paka was born. Doug and
Bev built a state of the art accommodation place for travellers to
sleep, camp and enjoy. Kiwi Paka became legendary with its "can-do"
attitude and helpful service. It was New Zealand's first
purpose built backpackers.
Word spread and many different people came to stay. Some
in flash cars, some by foot, some by bike…….but they all came
because of warm hospitality, company, good facilities and value for
money. That is the same today.
In 1994 Doug and Bev semi-retired, in came the younger
generation. Treen nurtured a unique accommodation complex, a one
stop shop. A place for individuals to rest, enjoy the company
of others. A place for groups to achieve and enjoy.
Treen loves Kiwi Paka, the outdoors and all the great things
Rotorua has to offer.
