The Lodge & Environs


Experience crisp clear air, birdsong, dew on the forest floor, 17-acres of perfect peace and quiet and attentiveness to your needs as palpable as the force of the mighty river itself.

The Lodge grounds are extensively planted and blend seamlessly into the bordering Wairakei Park Reserve beyond. Lovingly nurtured and manicured, they enclose a tennis court, a heated swimming pool, spa pools, petanque and croquet courts as well as many a quiet secluded corner to contemplate nature at its most bountiful and generous.

With just 25 rooms in total – 18 Jnr Lodge Suites, one Lodge Suite, the four-bedroom Owner’s Cottage and the two-bedroom Alan Pye Cottage the Lodge offers a very exclusive hospitality experience.
