Glorious gala dinners in the Lido Lounge - the epitome of style and sophistication!

"Mixed-bathing in liquid light...." such was the promise of pleasure used to entice visitors to Blue Baths in the 1930's. And they came in their droves, lured by the luxury of it all.

With simple lighting on the old signage and architectural features and beautiful tables, the Lido Lounge is quickly transformed into a stunning gala dinner venue. Add fabulous food, impecable service and award winning entertainment into the mix, then sit back and get ready to enjoy an incredible event.

 Fletcher Aluminium Gala Dinner


On Behalf of Fletcher Aluminium, I want to thank the team at The Blue Baths for helping make our Gala Dinner such a huge success. Our group of delegates expect a very high standard of service wherever they go and I have received nothing but positive feedback about the dinner.


Everyone went the extra mile to make sure our needs were met. It is a credit to you all! The entertainment was a huge success and proved very popular with the guests. I have had a number of people request their details for future events. Please extend our thanks to everyone that was involved on the night.

ANZAHPE Conference


It is with pleasure I write to thank you and your team for a wonderful conference dinner last week. The venue proved to be the perfect place to hold the function, especially as many of the delegates were from Australia and had not visited Rotorua before.


Thank you for your care with planning the event, for your advice throughout and especially for your help on the night. The meal was delicious, our thanks to your chef. Thank you also to your team for their warm service and smiles. Thank you again Natasha, we hope to bring another conference dinner or conference to you very soon.
