“Refurbished timeshare luxury”
Reviewed January 31, 2010

The newly refurbished 12 apartment Lake Edge Resort Taupo is definitely worth a stay. The mediterranean styled 2 bedroom 3 bathroom units sleep 7, and include full kitchen & laundry facilities, with a BBQ & patio furniture on the lower deck. The units are spacious, beautifully furnished & nearly all have close lake views.

The outdoor heated pool with garden landscaping is a focal point with shallow areas for younger children & an adjacent heated outdoor spa pool. A second spa (indoors, heated to a delicious 38 degrees), sauna, games room & guest lounge are located right near the pool area, & guests have use of the tennis courts opposite the resort. The resort’s kayaks were a great family activity with lots of beaches to explore along the lake edge, as well as several hot water inlets where people sat or paddled, enjoying the warm water. The good quality resort bikes can be ridden along the paved flat path around the lake edge which leads you into the Taupo township 3 ½ km away, or go for an evening walk & enjoy the spectacular sunset.

Prior to renovation the resort had become quite run down but this has all changed with the recent renovation & a general consensus that in recent times it has become more family friendly. Note: All units renovated except Unit 14 which is due to be renovated this year.
