Huka Lodge, Taupo

New Zealand

Iconic luxury and exquisite dining surrounded by breathtaking natural beauty.

This iconic hotel delivers extraordinary hospitality with an incredible backdrop of verdant forests, cascading waterfalls and towering mountains. Huka Lodge has long been considered among the best in the world, and it’s easy to see why.

You’ll find true relaxation when you arrive. Secluded from the outside world by pines and sat on the banks of the Waikato River, the only sounds you’ll hear are the running water and the birds in the trees.

Step inside this home-from-home and enjoy an unbeatable welcome. From the comfiest feather pillows to freshly-baked biscuits, everything has been thought of. With a simple yet luxurious décor and the comfiest beds in each of the 25 suites, you might never want to leave. And with in-room massages available and those views too, you won’t really need to.

Dinner here is a real treat, with over 20 romantic settings for private dining. Each has its own charm, offering remarkable views, luxurious décor or something truly unexpected. The cuisine puts the emphasis on the finest ingredients. Exceptional wines and impeccable service top it off perfectly.

If you can drag yourself away from the lodge, this stunning landscape holds plenty. Anglers will love landing trophy-size rainbow trout in the river. Nearby golf courses come with incredible mountain backdrops. Horse riding or biking the trails lets you really explore the terrain.
