Huka Lodge, Taupo

A rich landscape of lakes, forests, waterfalls and mountains forms a stunning backdrop to this iconic New Zealand retreat, which has been delivering an extraordinary hospitality experience to the world’s most discerning travellers, since 1924.


Huka Lodge has long been considered one of the top retreats in the world, with an extensive and continuous list of prestigious awards bearing testament to this. Nestling within a riverside location of great natural beauty, guests find true relaxation and inner peace as the real world is left behind. Nurtured by gourmet food, fine wine and attentive service guests luxuriate within the privacy of 17-acres of manicured grounds, within a Garden of National Significance. With over 20 unique and deliberately romantic venues available for private dining, guests are spoilt for choice and every last detail is considered for their comfort.


The charming Irishman Alan Pye founded Huka Lodge during the 1920s and it quickly established a reputation for the generous nature and style of its hospitality. This fine tradition continues to this very day with Huka Lodge still finding favour with the world’s most discerning travellers. Guests are made to feel very relaxed and within a ‘home away from home’ while staying at the Lodge, with service being both solicitous and anticipatory in nature. There is a strong desire to ensure that guests have a wonderful time during their stay at this iconic property.
