This is a beautiful lodge to spend you time. The staff is welcoming. The views everywhere are outstanding. Just breathing the air is a delight. Huka Falls are just a sort walk away. The food is wonderful, they will prepare anything for any type of diet. A exsperince worth having.

Huka Lodge is a fabulous lodge in an amazing location on the river just above Huka Falls. On arrival you are greeted by name in a relaxed and professional manner and this continues throughout the stay. The room is fabulous and every last thing is thought of - the bed is amazingly comfortable and you feel like you are in...

It's hard to know where to begin or how to find enough adjectives to describe this wonderful place. We arrived on 30 December after a long flight. On arrival, we were greeted with "bubbles?" rather than the usual "passport?". The hotel and grounds are beautiful and the accommodation is total luxury. What makes this place so different from other luxury...

About an hour from Rotorua Airport by car, good roads. A full of energy and cheerful General Manager welcomed us and gave us a tour of the small place. It felt like leaving a movie. Everything was just perfect. The rooms are located alongside the river, full of birds, ducks and black swans. They rotate the seating every night so...

Excellent luxury hotel with some of the best food in New Zealand. While not in some of the stunning locations of the South Island the place oozes charm and luxury. It is very relaxing and is well located. I highly recommend doing one of the boat trips they offer.

We stayed here for two nights as part of our tour of the North Island. We loved it. The Lodge itself is set in a stunning location and is so peaceful. The rooms are lovely with views out over the river. The staff were very professional and friendly. There are various private locations for dining - we had memorable meals...

We stayed at Huka Lodge as part of a luxury second honeymoon in NZ and Australia, Huka Lodge was the "jewel in the crown" We lodged in a Junior Suite, spacious and luxurious but curiously it really felt relaxed and homely at the same time, a lovely bathroom to boot.
