Expedition Image

Type: Luxury lodge

Grade: Deluxe


Founded in the 1920s, the 18-room Huka Lodge is considered to be the iconic New Zealand retreat.

Set in 17-acres of peaceful forest, the crisp clear air broken by magnificent birdsong will help guests to leave the real world behind.

The lodge grounds are lovingly nurtured and manicured, with a tennis court, a heated swimming pool and hot tubs, as well as many a quiet secluded corner in which to sun bathe. Only 300 metres upstream from the famous Huka Falls, the area is easy to explore on foot or by bike and the hotel offers the use of mountain bikes for free. If you choose to relax in the hotel, you can fill your time with a game of croquet, settling in to a good book in the library or booking a relaxing massage.

Although the restaurants of Taupo are a short 4.7km away, guests can also book breakfast, lunch and dinner to be prepared by their own personal chef.

Situated in extensive private grounds, the Junior Lodge Suites and the Lodge Suite are all very secluded, offering everything from a mini-bar to walk-in dressing room, opulent en suite bathroom to a hairdryer, an electric kettle to freshly baked biscuits.
