Huka Lodge New Zealand


This iconic New Zealand lodge lies superbly within 17-acres of manicured grounds beside the hypnotic turquoise green waters of the Waikato River in Taupo. Famed for its unrivalled location and generous hospitality since the 1920s, Huka Lodge offers 18 Junior Lodge Suites and two exclusive cottages – the Owner’s Cottage with four-suites and the new two-suite Alan Pye Cottage. Every last detail has been considered to ensure guests enjoy superb cuisine, and seamless service.


Enter through the gates of Huka Lodge and immediately begin to leave the real world behind. As guests journey the length of the drive and encounter the park-life grounds, a feeling of peace and tranquility begins to gently envelop them. That very first glimpse of the deep turquoise green waters of the Waikato River brings further affirmation of the potential that awaits. Experience crisp clear air, birdsong, and perfect peace and quiet at this magnificent retreat. Attention to your needs is as palpable as the force of the mighty river itself.  The Lodge grounds are extensively landscaped and blend seamlessly into the bordering Wairakei Park Reserve beyond. With just 25 rooms in total including those within the two exclusive cottages the Lodge offers very exclusive and sophisticated hospitality.

The Huka Experience, the ultimate ‘must do’ activity while staying at Huka Lodge, is a combination of a scenic helicopter flight over the magnificent Kaimanawa Ranges, the World Heritage site of Tongariro National Park and a scenic boat cruise on New Zealand’s largest lake. Lake Taupo was created as a result of a volcanic eruption in 181AD and enjoys roughly the same land mass as some countries, for example Singapore.

Huka Lodge proudly takes its place as one of the world’s finest retreats – its reputation and awards all richly deserved.
