Stay here! Brilliant from booking to checking out, brilliantly accommodating to our requirements and haven't stayed in a cleaner place. Very spacious and beautifully styled apartment with a view you couldn't manufacture if you tried. I made use of all the facilities and will 100% be returning.

Large well equipped two bedroom apartment. The views across the lake were really nice and seeing the mountain topped with snow in the distance was the icing on the cake. (no pun intended) The manager/receptionist was great, always smiling and helpful. The only small criticism was the dust on the tables in the kitchen/living area, but everything else was perfect...

Lovely views, excellent accommodation. The main feature is the attention to detail. We were upgraded to penthouse A, five stars in every way. Rave, rave, rave, for the apartment, the view, and the staff.

I really can't add anymore than what has been said by the other reviewers - the place is absolutely spectacular. We were a group of 19 people and had taken two penthouse apartments and two three bed apartments (lake view) - each and every one was immaculate. The 3 bed penthouse however was really out of this world - the... More

We stayed 2 nights before Christmas in Apartment 2 and can highly recommend it. Sometimes it feels like a rip off to pay extra for a special view, but this place is well well worth it! To open the gate and walk 2 steps to the lake shore is a unique experience. The hot tub in the garden was a... More

We enjoyed using the kitchen and laundry facilities. The fixtures and fittings were all very good quality and the hot tub on the balcony looking out over the Lake was enjoyed by the... More

My family and I enjoyed our stay in the Sacred Waters apartment. Quite centrally located in Taupo, close to the restaurants with direct access to the lakefront. The room came with a hot tub that is supposed to use the thermal waters from the ground. We did enjoy it and it was quite relaxing. My husband said that the gym... More

Nice view and well appointed apartments, with large balcony. Had a penthouse 2 bedroom with a family member and was nice and quiet the first night, but the 2nd night was spoilt by ferals who checked in next door and made lots of noise until late at night (despite managements numerous notices posted of no noise after 10:30pm).

Dear SoCalAppraoch, Thank you for your review and comments. We are glad you enjoyed the beautiful views in the well appointed apartment. It was disappointing to read that you had problems with your neighbours and noise. We do have rules in place to control noise after 10.30pm, however at times we are not always aware that there is a problem.... More
