The Mrs and I travelled up to Waihi from Palmy via Taupo.
Finding the lodge is easy enough, we used a combination of google maps and the well placed road signs.
Once we got to the lodge, it was stunning. Beautiful buildings, layout and a great (unoccupied beach) about 20 minutes walk down hill.
We stayed in Rivendale, with a private outdoor spa bath looking over the hills. Perfect. Plus a bed large enough for me to lay flat in any dimension or orientation I could think of (big deal I am 6ft5").
We stayed at the lodge for dinner and it was worth every penny. Brilliant food and great atmosphere.
Without gushing too much more. There is literally not a negative or bad thing to say. Following this review I am booking a long weekend again come winter.
