The Cottages at Huka Lodge
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!
In addition to the lodge suites, Huka Lodge also offers two spectacular cottages for the utmost in luxury and privacy. The two bedroom Alan Pye Cottage and the four bedroom Alex van Heeran Cottage come with generous living areas, well equipped kitchens and ensuite bedrooms all decorated by triumphant designer Virgina Fisher, as well as spas and plunge pools. The Alan Pye Cottage also features an outdoor pavilion with roaring fireplace, perfect for evening drinks; while the Alex van Heeran Cottage has a private courtyard garden and dramatic river views. Guests have access to all lodge facilities, or can stay in complete seclusion from the other guests.
