Dear Licensees

Re-opening of timeshare facilities and the Annual General Meeting


With the Covid-19 pandemic now at Level 2 I am pleased to announce that we are in the process of reopening the timeshare facilities.

Thank you for your patience and understanding for the time we have been unable to offer the timeshare facilities to you. Your committee and Body Corporate Services greatly appreciated this.

As from Friday 29 May, as the country is opened up to internal travel, the timeshare facilities will be open to licensees. Denise at Body Corporate Services is currently working hard with VR Rotorua to prepare the units for

In an attempt to maximise the availability of our units to you, with the wonderful assistance of Vivek Singh and his team at VR Rotorua, we have brought forward the annual deep clean of the units. The deep clean started this last week and is scheduled to finish in time of re-opening.


Thank you Vivek.

To assist in gaining a booking that will suit you, we ask that you go online to make your bookings or contact Body Corporate Services Limited (Denise) to determine availability and to confirm bookings. Denise will work hard to accommodate your needs. Do please be understanding if you are not able to get your preferred dates, we have lost 9 weeks of occupancy to Covid-19.


Annual General Meeting

Your committee has been giving thought to the upcoming Annual General Meeting (AGM). We are hoping that we will be in a position to hold the meeting as we have always, at Okawa Bay, Lake Rotoiti. We are aware that we may not be in a position to do this as we may be prevented by Government in terms of numbers at a gathering, as is currently the case under Level 2.

As required by our Constitution, we will provide licensees Notice of the AGM at least 14 days prior to the meeting. To aid your planning, your Committee has set a probable date of Saturday 20 June 2020, at 11am.

If we are unable to hold the meeting physically at Okawa Bay, we will hold the meeting by way of Zoom, the internet based meeting platform many will be familiar with following our recent lockdown. You will be advised through the Notice of Meeting whether the meeting will be at Okawa Bay or by way of Zoom.

We appreciate that this uncertainty is unhelpful, however thank you for your understanding and patience.


Thank you.

In addition, a washing machine, dryer, dishwasher, microwave, Sky TV and DVD player are in each villa.


All villas deliver gorgeous lake views, over expansive lawns and gardens. Each villa is designed to look out over the lakefront, with a private boat launching ramp and marina just metres from the front of your apartment.


Okawa Bay is the ideal spot to cast your line in the water. For boating enthusiasts there is a boat ramp and free marina berth for your stay, there is a water ski lane right beside the resort, and of course, the famous trout fishing of the region right on your doorstep! There are also free kayaks and mountain bikes, and plenty of charter boats to hire.
Scenic walks surround the area, there are tourist attractions in Rotorua ranging from Whakarewarewa, Rainbow & Fairy Springs, many lakes and thermal attractions, eco-tours, golf, the Agrodome, Buried Village to name just a few.
Or you may find it so peaceful in Okawa Bay Resort that you just relax on the balcony with a good book listening to the lapping of the waves and the birdsong.
