Dear Licensees


Shut-down of timeshare facilities With the Covid-19 pandemic, we are all facing an unprecedented situation that is affecting our families, our businesses, our communities, and our way of life. Your health, and that of others you interact with, depends on each of us doing the right thing to avoid unnecessary deaths. Your Committee has been actively monitoring the developing Covid-19 situation and taking account of advice coming from New Zealand’s Ministry of Health.


With this in mind, your Committee has taken the unprecedented step to close the Okawa Rotoiti Timeshares immediately. We expect that all licensees would expect nothing less of us. At this time the health and wellbeing of you all, the staff at VR Rotorua and any service people who look after us is paramount.
We are currently uncertain as to the period of time we will be closed. Certainly it will be for the 4 week period of isolation mandated by Government, and most probably for some time beyond that.


We ask that all licensees limit any communications with Body Corporate Services Limited (Denise and Garth) to absolutely essential communications. They are working from home and attending to multiple properties under their general management. We also ask that licensees not make bookings online at this time. This is necessary as any extension of the mandated isolation period will require extensive effort on the part of Body Corporate Services (BCS) to manage the booking processes.


Your committee is working with BCS and VR Rotorua to minimise the disruption to you and our normal operations. We will communicate with you as matters dictate.


We thank you for your understanding and patience at this very difficult time.
Thank you.


Ben Palmer
Chair, Okawa Rotoiti Timeshares Inc


Okawa Bay Resort really is like a home away from home.  The Resort provides all the comforts you could wish for. In every unit there is a full supply of linen, crockery and kitchen equipment for six people.


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.
