We have stayed at Huka Lodge earlier. We were amazed by the view, the accomodation and the services. After two years, we come again for the second time. We were greeted like a 'loyal customer'. It's really was a wonderful stay. We loved the rooms, the meal, the services and the friendliness of all the staffs and General Manager himself.... More

Much has been written about this veritable oasis of luxury and service - it is all true. Never ever on our worldwide trips have we experienced the level of care and comfort and service that Huka offers.

My wife and I had a two-night stay at Huka Lodge in early December 2014 as part of our Golden Wedding anniversary celebrations. This was our second visit having been guests about 11 years ago. The Lodge had been made aware of the special occasion we were celebrating. As a result, they went that extra yard to ensure it was... More

We spent two nights at Huka Lodge in November with five other couple, and two nights was just not enough for this beautiful place. The abiding memory will be of the setting. The rooms are set along the Huka river,within earshot of the Huka Falls. In front of every room lies an enormous and perfect lawn going down to as... More

This was my fourth visit to this unique property which makes an ideal stop in the center of the north island. Finally after erring with "Small (not so) Luxury Hotels of the World" and "Leading Hotels of the World" this unique place is back where it belongs: "Relais & Châteaux". Also the new excellent general manager coming from Kauri Cliffs,... More

I have stayed at many many first class places and Huka Lodge needs to be somewhere at the top. They are pricey, but I really felt that given what was included, the location and the views, the exclusivity, that the price was actually on the low side (note I stayed in off season and paid the smaller Tariffs). Activities booked... More

REALLY Exceptional staff; everyone eager and able to delight and exceed even the highest expectations. Exceptional food. Exceptional Rooms. Exceptional Place. Truly one of the best hotels anywhere in the world. If you can afford it, go there. If you can't, add to your bucket list and stay there sometime! Little point writing more, it just has to be experienced.

Huka Lodge is pure luxury and everything you would expect that comes with that. An exquisite setting, comfortable lounges with fires that roar all year round, perfectly appointed rooms with fabulous bathrooms and your own patio with a view over the grounds. The 5 course dinner every night is both the finest and most innovative cuisine you will have tasted... More
