What a great place to stay, it has everything you could ask for. The greeting was warm and friendly. But if you are staying because of the hot pool its not great. Feels like a big kitchen sink, very slippery and dangerous, would be better with a normal spa pool. Did not use it in the end.

Dear Robyn, thank you for choosing Sacred Waters and for taking the time to write a review on TripAdvisor! Thank you for staying with us and for your feedback. The reason why we have Thermal Hot Tubs "hot pools" and not normal spa pools: - THERMAL HOT TUB at Sacred Waters – filled with spring water with healing minerals. The thermal hot tubs are cleaned with disinfectant and ready to fill with water from deep under the ground, where it is heated by geothermal activity. The minerals include the ones found in your skin’s natural moisturizing factor (NMF), like chlorides, sodium, potassium, calcium, and magnesium. NORMAL SPA POOL – Heated by electricity with added chemicals to treat the local council water. Normally used by different people with the same water for long periods. We are passionate, respect our valued guests, and loves to go the extra mile. Our aim is to provide a totally unique experience. Sincerely, Chris and Cindy

This place is so nice, we had the most lovely and friendly greeting, it was obvious it was important to the staff we were happy. We stayed in apartment 9 you name it, it has it we were very happy. Next time we would prefer a room with a view of the lake which would come with more privacy, obviously at a higher price though. Would happily stay here again.

Right from when we arrived we felt very welcomed by Cindy. She came with us to show us around the Penthouse which was nice and something we haven't experienced anywhere else. Nothing was a problem. The rooms were spacious and clean and the kitchen was well and truly equipped with everything! The two bedrooms on the road side were a little noisy and breezy, but that didn't put a downer on the kids having their own space. We had a family celebration and were delighted to have a few guests visit us whilst we were there. The heated pool, gym and the hot tub were much appreciated by our family. The view was amazing! Truly a lake side accommodation! We had a private carpark under the main building, which felt very secure at anytime of the day. Cindy and Chris were great hosts and I'm definitely hoping to stay there again, sometime soon.

This night cost me a bit more than I really wanted to pay but I’m so pleased we did it. Taupo was pretty full this Saturday night and we needed a rest stop on our journey so there were little choices. We booked a 3 bedroom lake front and we’re allocated room 2. The apartments are all individually owned so I suspect that the decor and potentially layout may differ in each. It was super clean, well appointed and very comfortable beds. Of course a fabulous view and this is one of the few properties in Taupo that are truly lake front. We enjoyed both the shared warm swimming pool and the private thermal pool on our terrace. The apartment has everything you would need to cook a good meal and this is rare in holiday accomodation. The third bedroom is connected to the lounge but closes off. The decor while not all to my taste (white carpets!) was classy with lovely art pieces and some nice Kartell furniture. The beds were hugely comfortable. My only constructive feedback for the owners and caution for future guests is that there is no individual ventilation/air conditioning in the bedrooms. There is air con in the hallway and main lounge which is designed to cool the apartment but it means sleeping with doors open which isn’t great for privacy. In our case it was OK as we were a family group. There is thermal underfloor hearing to keep you toasty warm in winter but if you want to breathe you would need to open the bedroom doors. We had our own garage in the lake front apartment which is great for security. Those in the main building share a large car park. These apartments are modern but not new and some of the age is showing (for example light switches ) but in making this statement I am being super picky but I think you should be at a premium price. I think that being said - this apartment is suitable for the premium price they command. The managers offer a warm greeting and welcome and I’m sure would be available to assist with any requests. If I were looking for a premium stay in Taupo again - yes I would come again.
