Huka Lodge has been delivering impeccable hospitality and experiences to the world’s most discerning travellers for close to 100 years. First-class fishing, delicious cuisine and the great outdoors ensure that this luxury boutique hotel is consistently rated as one of the world’s top retreats. Located in Taupo, home to New Zealand’s largest lake on the North Island, this wonderful 1920s hotel was founded as a simple fishing lodge. Bordered by well-manicured grounds and sitting right on the Waikato River and mighty cascading Huka Falls, it is still very much an anglers paradise, a gourmet lover’s dream and an intimate getaway for those seeking privacy and seclusion. In winter, the lodge comes into its own as a base for skiing with some of the country’s best slopes just a short distance away.
There are just 18 Junior Lodge-Suites, one Lodge Suite, a four-bedroom Owners Cottage and the two-bedroom Alan Pye Cottage all of which are located within 17-acres of beautifully manicured grounds that sit alongside the Waikato River. Every room is extremely well-designed with a simple approach that allows the beauty outside the window to dominate the look and feel of each room.
For the ultimate in privacy, the Owners Cottage can be taken as an exclusive-use property. As part of the property, there is a private spa and swimming pool, a gorgeous stone pavilion for outdoor dining, a fireplace, a butler and private chef.
Children are most welcome at Huka Lodge (Children under the age of 5yrs stay on a complimentary basis) and there are many exciting activities to be enjoyed including riding, hiking, jet-boat adventures, kayaking and white-water rafting.
