– in the Ruapehu District
We will be happy to assist you with information about the district’s attractions and activities, and there are free brochures and maps available in the office. We can also offer advice on where to eat out or shop in Taumarunui.
After a day exploring the wilderness of our local area come back to Alexander Spa Motel to relax in our spa and collapse into a comfortable bed.
Origin of the Name Taumarunui
Taumaru: screen; nui: large. The story behind the name is that when the chief Pehi Turoa was dying he asked that a screen be erected to shade him from the sun. He died before the work was completed, with the words ‘taumaru nui’ on his lips.
We look forward to having you stay with us at:
