HUKA LODGE

Since it was founded in 1924, Huka Lodge has been the best-kept secret of the international A-List. This exquisite property nestles beside the deep turquoise-green waters of the Waikato River, upstream from the spectacular Huka Falls, in Taupo. Within 17-acres of private grounds there are just 25 suites; including the exclusive Alan Pye Cottage, and the Owner’s Cottage.

Proud of its heritage and authentic fly-fishing experiences, Huka Lodge is globally recognised for its generous hospitality, with a long list of prestigious awards being testament to this. Privacy, attentive bespoke service, a club-like atmosphere and extraordinarily romantic dining locations ensure that guests return year-after-year.

Play 18-holes at the Wairakei International Golf Course, just a five-minute drive from Huka Lodge, and then venture a little further afield and play at The Kinloch Club, New Zealand’s only Jack Nicklaus Signature Course. Both these courses are magnificent and offer spectacular scenery, along with world-class golf experiences.

WHAREKAUHAU COUNTRY ESTATE 

Wharekauhau Country Estate is a 5500-acre historical sheep station perched high on the cliff tops overlooking the dramatic Palliser Bay coastline. Situated a short 10-minute helicopter flight, or scenic 90-minute drive, from Wellington you feel the true sense of retreating to the New Zealand countryside.

The lodge is designed in the feel of an Edwardian country house, with accommodations being in separate Cottage Suites dotted amongst the pastures, and gardens.

Enjoy a day out playing 18 holes of golf at the Royal Wellington Golf Club. Royal Wellington is considered one of the best private members’ parkland courses in New Zealand, and was chosen to host the 2017 Asia-Pacific Amateur Championship.

Returning to Wharekauhau Country Estate you can relax and unwind in your luxurious Cottage Suite, or get out and explore some of the estate's hiking and biking trails. Perhaps before departing the property you may take advantage of the opportunity to enjoy a guided ATV quad bike tour of the Wharekauhau farm.
