This legendary lodge, founded in 1924 by charming Irishman Alan Pye, lies within the North Island’s magnificent heartland, nestled within 17-acres of manicured grounds beside the hypnotic, turquoise green waters, of the Waikato River in Taupo. With just 18 Junior Lodge Suites, one suite and two private cottages providing two luxurious hideaways.
Famed over the past 90 years for its unrivalled location and generous hospitality, every last detail has been considered to ensure guests enjoy superb cuisine, seamless service and every sophisticated comfort. Huka Lodge proudly takes its place as one of the world’s finest retreats – its reputation and abundance of awards all richly deserved.
Huka Lodge is a sister property to Dolphin Island, Fiji and Grande Provence, South Africa.
Favored by the A-List, this is undisputedly one of the world’s most exclusive hideaways, offering the best of both worlds, total privacy, as well as all Huka Lodge has to offer.
All nestling along the banks of the magnificent Waikato River, upstream from the mighty Huka Falls.
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-like grounds, a feeling of peace and tranquility begins to gently envelop them.
The garden at Huka Lodge is ranked as a ‘Garden of National Significance’ and deemed to be of regional importance by the New Zealand Gardens Trust. True retreats in every sense, the suites are harmonious and deliberately simple in approach. Designed to allow the beauty of the landscape to dominate, with layers of well-appointed luxury.
