Ramada Resort Reia Taipa Beach has been rated one of the best hotels in New Zealand in TripAdvisor’s 2017 Travellers’ Choice Awards.

Located beachfront between Cape Reinga and the Bay of Islands on picturesque Taipa Bay, the resort was rebranded as Ramada Resort Reia Taipa Beach last year and has maintained a four-and-a-half-star rating on Trip Advisor, with an outstanding 56 percent of reviewers calling their stay ‘excellent’.

“May of our guests come here purely for the seclusion and tranquillity at Taipa Bay and are pleasantly surprised at the standard of personalised service and quality of food they receive outside a major city,” said resort manager Jackie Thompson. “Rating so prominently on this TripAdvisor list tells us that guests appreciate our efforts.”

Globally, the Ramada brand includes more than 850 hotels in 63 countries, including 29 hotels currently open and operating in the South Pacific.
