Huka Lodge, Taupo

Huka Lodge combines the rustic experience of a traditional lodge, with the sophisticated elegance of any Relais & Chateaux property. For the stylish traveler who still wants to be part of the action, you can’t go far wrong with Huka.


The lodge itself is set on the banks of the Waikato River, just upstream from Huka Falls, Taupo. Ten minutes’ drive from Taupo airport, or just under four hours’ drive or a short flight from Auckland, you’ll find yourself in a serene and iconic woodland paradise.

Your room

Suites and cottages are beautifully appointed, each offering privacy, local art and features and spellbinding views. We loved the Owner’s Cottage that is almost completely hidden and therefore the perfect place to relax.

Why we like it

Huka is an example of New Zealand hospitality at its finest. Whether arranging a private helicopter over the volcanoes, a fly fishing expedition, or even a spa treatment, the staff will go above and beyond to ensure you’re well looked after throughout your time here.
