This timeshare resort is on the edge of Lake Taupo about three kilometres from the town centre. It is family friendly and right on the bank of the lake. Sunset walks along the bike/walking path were pleasant, as was the resort itself. The apartments are two storey with attractive views from the second floor. The furnishings were excellent and comfortable and we had three bathrooms which was a bonus. As there were only four of us travelling the children had one each. This resort would be at the high end of timeshare quality, with all the expected facilities, pool, spa, sauna, games room and bikes, all maintained to a good standard. Apart from the fact that all the balconies overlook each other and are too close for any privacy, this is a top class place to stay..

Room Tip: Ask for an apartment away from the busy road and if you are a timeshare guest don't expect to ge...

We had a week here in a very luxurious timeshare resort - such quality fixtures & fittings and crockery, glassware etc. The view over the lake was an extra bonus with our own private balcony area with bbq. A great position to head off to do all your sightseeing whether it be to Rotorua or to the magnificent Bayview Chateau. Lake Taupo was nice but definitely no Queenstown.

The newly refurbished 12 apartment Lake Edge Resort Taupo is definitely worth a stay. The mediterranean styled 2 bedroom 3 bathroom units sleep 7, and include full kitchen & laundry facilities, with a BBQ & patio furniture on the lower deck. The units are spacious, beautifully furnished & nearly all have close lake views.

The outdoor heated pool with garden landscaping is a focal point with shallow areas for younger children & an adjacent heated outdoor spa pool. A second spa (indoors, heated to a delicious 38 degrees), sauna, games room & guest lounge are located right near the pool area, & guests have use of the tennis courts opposite the resort. The resort’s kayaks were a great family activity with lots of beaches to explore along the lake edge, as well as several hot water inlets where people sat or paddled, enjoying the warm water. The good quality resort bikes can be ridden along the paved flat path around the lake edge which leads you into the Taupo township 3 ½ km away, or go for an evening walk & enjoy the spectacular sunset.

Prior to renovation the resort had become quite run down but this has all changed with the recent renovation & a general consensus that in recent times it has become more family friendly. Note: All units renovated except Unit 14 which is due to be renovated this year.
