The name of the city of Rotorua comes from the city’s Māori name, Te Rotorua-nui-a-Kahumatamomoe. Literally, the name Rotorua means second lake. The city does indeed sit to the south of the lake that bears the same name as the city. The bay that the city forms is known as the Bay of Plenty, and this is the region in which the city resides.
Rotorua is the seat of the Rotorua District, which includes the city of Rotorua and towns that are nearby.
Tourists are drawn to the city for its geographic location over a spot of geothermal activity. This means that things like the Pohutu Geyser at Whakarewarewa and various hot mud pools make the city a great location for many natural spas.
