Taupo, New Zealand
Fabulous for fly-fishers, foodies and families. No list of New Zealand luxury lodges would be complete without mention of Huka Lodge, New Zealand’s iconic super lodge.
Far from its humble beginnings as a fishing camp nearly a century ago, and whilst Huka Lodge still attracts avid anglers from around the globe, this favourite New Zealand luxury lodge now regularly also hosts royalty and rockstars, Hollywood names and other high-fliers; and there aren’t many luxury travel accolades that Huka hasn’t hooked!
A member of the prestigious Relais and Chateaux hotels, Huka Lodge offers 18 luxurious appointed lodge rooms, and two ultraluxe exclusive-use cottages; the four bedroom Alex van Heeran Cottage and the two bedroom Alan Pye Cottage. Angling aside, this most luxury of New Zealand lodges, offers just about everything from massages to mountain-biking, with options, amenities and experiences for guests of all ages.
