Nestled into the hills, overlooking the luxury golf course, Kinloch Manor offers up elegantly designed suites and villas that blend into the natural surroundings and offer up the ultimate luxury. The muted tones of white and grey, and splashes of duck egg blues, offer a cosy simplicity, while the open windows and terraces provide sweeping views of the Lake and countryside. Inside the main building, the numerous windows encompass the property in glowing light, while the combination of sheepskin throws, antique furnishings and Scandinavian chic combine seamlessly together to create the perfect retreat. Take a breath of fresh air in the courtyard by the warming glow of the outdoor fireplace, enjoying the beautiful inky black night sky full of dazzling stars.
WINE & DINE
The food and Kinloch Manor is certainly worth writing home about and it is all locally and freshly sourced from the estate or nearby. The deliciously fresh and seasonal menu is artistically compiled together by the team of chefs, and each course is bursting with flavour, leaving you wanting more. In the late afternoon, gather for a little pre-dinner tipple in the 'Great Room' and watch the sun set, transforming the vast sky into a flurry of pinks, purples and oranges. Indulge in Afternoon Tea after a day navigating the challenging golf course, as the attentive and friendly staff cater to your every whim. Try a day on the water fishing, taking your catch back to the hotel for the chef to transform into a scrumptious seafood dinner. Alternatively, head to the buzzing town of Taupo and try one of the many restaurants and bars that pepper the area, trying local favourites, including The Bistro.
Kinloch Manor offers an exceptional array of activities, from walking hidden trails that weave their way through the Tongariro National Park, to conquering the demanding golf course. Explore the iconic 18-hole Jack Nicklaus Golf Course, playing a game or two on this notoriously challenging turf and develop your skills with your own personal golfing pro. Head out on to the serene waters of Lake Taupo, and soak up the warming sun rays and Maori culture as you explore carved rocks and hidden coves by boat. Stop by for a traditional Maori hangi, chatting away with the locals and learning more about the traditions and culture. After a few busy days, relax and slip away into a world of pampering and comfort in the spa, enjoying deep tissue massages, seaweed body wraps and rejuvenating facials.
