4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2011

We were greeted on arrival by a very friendly host, and the kids were soon in the swimming pool.  The pool was really warm for an outdoor pool, and the kids spent much of our holiday time there.  Even though the construction of the complex was looking a little dated, the room was well appointed and clean (ours was not lake front) and the complex layout very safe and secure.  The kids also made good use of free table tennis, and spent some time on the lake shore with the ducks.  We purchased a token for 24hrs of WiFi for $30.  This was not our best decision, as it was comparatively a bit pricey, and the connection from our room at least was patchy and slow.  The website describes the resort as 'stunning luxury accommodation' - I would say more like 'very comfortable motel on the lake shore'  All in all, we had a good time and a very nice stay.

What a pleasant surprise!

We expected a clean, well presented room but our expectations were exceeded. Our room (no 7) has been recently renovated in a very modern style and best of all... it was right on the water's edge. Separate living room, master bedroom and 2nd b/room were all beautifully furnished and the kitchen area is adequate for a short stay,

But the thing that sets the Oasis apart is the fact that it was right on the water... with ducks and swans right outside our verandah.

I'm sure the other rooms are just as well presented but it's the lake frontage rooms that make the Oasis a winner.

We arrived on a freezing day and were greeted by the lovely thoughtful hosts who had made sure the very clean and nicely furnished room was heated before we arrived. We booked this room on the internet and were so happy to find the pictures were a true indication of the place. We had a poolside room, which was great as we could watch our children swim from our room. The bed and bedding were luxurious and we had the best sleep we have ever had away from home. We look forward to staying again.

Stayed here with family, including a three and a half year old. Booked a 2 bedroom, lakeside apartment, which also had a kitchenette and a sitting room. Rooms are on the small side but clean and comfortable. Pleasant and helpful staff. Position is excellent, right on the lake, with an outside patio, visited by ducks. A car ride from the centre of Taupo. Room service was available from the adjacent affiliated hotel, where meals could also be taken. Swimming pool and tennis court. Excellent value for money.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2011

The best thing about this motel was that it is right by the lake. We only had to walk 15m and we were swimming in the lake ( in a spot where geothermal hot water kept your feet warm)
The views were marvellous. If you're big on privacy thepublic path that is 5m from your room might be daunting but we enjoyed sitting on our porch and saying good morning to passing joggers. The rooms was fine but not spectacular however the outside area was great
