As when we arrived there we did not want to leave... Private underground parking was very secure The apartment was spotless and I do not exaggerate when I say we could of lived... More

My sister and I were traveling in New Zealand on vacation and stayed in Sacred Waters during our time in Taupo. We arrived around 7pm, which was after the hours the front desk was open, but our key was there ready at the desk with instructions on how to get in. Our apartment was beautiful and had a gorgeous view... More

This place is stunning. Thanks to Renee who made us welcome form the moment we arrived. She kindly upgraded us which was a great surprise. An even bigger surprise was the view as we opened the front door. We extended our stay immediately as we fell in love with the apartment. If we didn't live in the other side of... More

This hotel far exceeded my expectations. I booked a 2bed penthouse and was upgraded to a 3 bed penthouse. Although we didn't need the extra room, it meant that we had the best view from the balcony overlooking the lake and back into the town centre. The apartment had everything you could possibly need. Including Ipod docking station, free wifi.... More

We stayed in a beautiful 3 bedroom lake view apartment with a large deck & outdoor spa. 2 bedrooms had ensuites, plus a separate 3rd bathroom. Living space was very big and very tastefully furnished (contemporary style decor, super comfortable large couches). Large kitchen, plenty of bench space, all the basic utensils/crockery you need if eating in. Apartment came with... More

Clean, lots of space. Good views ofthelake. Hot tub on balcony a nice bonus. Underfloor heating, and well equipped apartments -- good just for an overnight, or to use as a base for a week in the area with family.

Host was lovely, friendly and polite. Both apartments had large hot tubs, beautifully furnished, awesome water pressure, and one had a... More

We had 3 nights in the 3 bedrooom Lakefront apartment in April. We were just blown away when we walked in, the views are amazing, uninterrupted across the entire lake. Beautiful tranquil spot. The unit has a full kitchen, dining and lounge area, underfloor heating, and a thermal spa on the verandah!! We didn't use this but it looked great.... More

For us it was a last minute decision to head away for the weekend and we were keen to find something with a separate sleeping area for our 5 year old daughter so she'd settle. The Sacred Waters was just a little more $ wise than a bedsit style room at the Millenium or a 2 bed at the campground... More

We had an amazing 3 bed frontline lake view apartment & it was fantastic. Everything from the stunning view to the wonderful furnishings & amenities was perfect. Very spacious, ultra modern, chic & spotless!! My only disappointment was that we only had 1 night booked, but we will go back!
