Retreat from the world, escape from the rat race and immerse yourself in the natural beauty of New Zealand's North Island. Hide out at Huka Lodge.

Huka Lodge sets a high standard for an outstanding lodge experience; the superb location, relaxed environment, and authentic service are hard to fault.
Huka Lodge sprawls across natural park-like grounds along the banks of the Waikato River. Once a much sought after fisherman's retreat, the Lodge has evolved into a renowned luxury haven for those seeking an exclusive getaway.

Here, guests have the choice of comfortable Lodge rooms or, the more private and sumptuous cottages tucked away in the grounds. At Huka Lodge the attentive staff can also assist in arranging a wide range of activities; from a gentle game of petanque or croquet, to the more hell-raising, like bungee jumping and sky diving. And of course there's a definite must do, fly fishing for brown trout on Lake Taupo.

Meals up at the Lodge are a delight to the taste buds, as the chef serves only the freshest, locally-sourced New Zealand produce. For guests who land a catch of the day, chefs will even cook your haul for you and your companions to enjoy. But don't forget to take a snapshot first. Once it's gone, it's just another fish story.

Junior Lodge Suite

Super King bed, lounge area and river view. An extra bed is available for a cost.

Set down on the front lawn at Huka Lodge, far away from the mad bustle of city life. Huka Helicopter transfers guests from Auckland, Wellington and Rotorua to the front lawn of this exclusive lodge. If your afraid of heights hire a limousine or car and enjoy the leisurely three hour drive from Auckland, it's a bit longer from Wellington, but less from Rotorua.
