Hotel Review

Huka Lodge is located three hundred metres upstream from the magnificent Huka Falls in Taupo on the banks of Waikato River. There’s a range of super-luxe sleeping arrangements to chose from, including 25 Junior Lodge suites, and two self-catering cottages (Owner’s Cottage and Alan Pye Cottage). Rooms are bright, spacious and elegant, with separate dressing rooms, underfloor heating and charming wooden terraces. Characteristic large glass windows bring the outside in and make the most of the unspoilt landscape the river meanders through. There’s a definite Scottish highland lodge feel about the place as rooms are filled with antiques, chandeliers, stag and buffalo heads and tartan rugs. Cosy up by the roaring fireplaces, or relax by the outdoor spa and swimming pools. This is the perfect place for a romantic getaway, with over 20 indoor and outdoor private dining venues – a candlelit meal in the wine cellar is particularly atmospheric or under the trees in the 17 acre garden, recognised as a Garden of National Significance. There are over 40 trout-filled rivers and streams nearby, or take a day trip exploring the tribal heritage of local guide Te Ori Paki. A riverside haven.
