“Best place I've stayed in a VERY long time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2012

This is truly a home away from home with extremely well appointed, modern design and layout, and massive internal space - you could live here - totally relaxing. We could sit at the outdoor dining table and watch the kids play at the lakes edge through the glass fence. Staff are totally attentive and very friendly. So easy to drive into a private garage, walk through the door to see the mountains in the distance across the lake. Very inviting and rewarding.

Room Tip: Go for the lakeside units

Love staying here - location is perfect, no road noise - only the view of the lake and mountains and everything in between - boats, water activities, bird life and fresh air. The best - wish I could live there. Extremely private in all respects, undercover parking and wonderful service - nothing was a problem.

Room Tip: We have stayed in Apartment A and B on the top floor - either is great.

thank you for a very enjoyable three days. We loved the apartment and it really added to our stay in .It was great coming back in the evening to the view (definitely go for a lake view) and to the big bath on the balconey. Comfy beds, great bathrooms, well stocked kitchen and a quiet night's sleep. Worth the money.

Recently made our third visit to Sacred Waters so we must like it! The apartments are extremely well equipped and modern - the one we stayed in having three bedrooms. Views over Lake Taupo are superb. Staff were extremely friendly and the apartment was serviced daily. Free undercover car parking and wifi access.

Stayed here for the second time for the Taupo cycle challenge in a 3 bedroom apartment. Views are amazing. Was disappointed this year that all the kitchen crockery and untensils we used were dirty and we needed to rewash. Would not expect this from a 5 star unit paying over $600 a night.

We spent 6 days of perfect relaxation at Sacred Waters. The 2 bedroom lakeview apartment was clean and very well equipped. It had everything we needed to be self sufficient. The view although overlooking the lakefront apartments was more than adequate as you could see the lake unobstructed and of course, the gorgeous sunset. Car parking was convenient. Renee and Liz were helpful managers.

Room Tip: the lakeview apartments do get nice views
