Huka Lodge, Lake Taupo
Consistently rated one of the world’s top five retreats, Alex van Heeren’s luxurious haven shelters beneath trees beside the mighty Waikato River and Lake Taupo.
Twenty cottage-style suites dot the riverbank, each with a spacious bedroom and living area with glass doors accessing a private terrace. Sip a drink beside the main lodge’s log fires then dine on superb cuisine wherever you desire, be it the candlelit dining room or a lakeside verandah.
Stroll the gardens or enjoy exciting excursions, from trout fishing and white-water rafting to horse trekking and boat trips on Lake Taupo.
