“Wow”
Reviewed September 30, 2012

That was my first response when I saw the view from our 3 bedroom Lakefront apartment.We stayed for 3 nights and it was so nice to return each day to a view of the lake and mountains.
The apartments are beautifully furnished and very spacious. Renee and Liz are so lovely and looked after us so well it was sad to leave. Thankyou for a wonderful stay. We will definitly return.

Room Tip: Choose a lakefront. You wil not be dissapointed

We stayed in a four-bedroom lakefront apartment for one night during our trip around the north island - there was only four of us so we each had our own bedroom! One for mum, one for nan and the kids (aged 10 and 13) also had their own bedrooms - it was brilliant! The apartment is huge, and the view of the lake off the balcony is unforgettable - the windows extend over the entire length of the front of the apartment. The snow-capped mountains are stunning. The apartment was modern with 2 big bathrooms, a huge kitchen and dining/lounge area. Hot tub on the deck overlooking the lake is to die for! Two of the bedrooms have TVs mounted high on the walls. 3 of the bedrooms had queen size beds and were a good size, with the 4th bedroom being a medium-sized single bedroom. The high quality of the apartment (and the whole complex) is unbelievable. The pool is brilliant and so warm! Feels like a hot tub! Staying at Sacred Waters was one of the highlights of our trip to NZ - we will never forget it.

Room Tip: It is worth spending a bit extra to be on the lakefront - it is worth every cent.

Great place to stay - location, view, size, pool, friendliness of staff. We had an apartment by the lake side (3 bedrooms) that was great, including a washing machine and full kitchen (great for when you have young kids). We will certainly visit again.

We've just been fortunate to spend two nights at Sacred Waters....absolutely bliss !! We had a two bedroom (actually had 3 bedrooms) two bathroom apartment which was fully self contained, there was nothing we would have wanted that wasn't there. The view was fantastic, the furnishings and chattels of a very high standard, the heated lap pool which is 21m was wonderful (our son loved the pool) and the icing on the cake was our own hot tub on our deck, which was sheer bliss. The property opens onto the lake front and there's a wonderful paved public walkway which runs along the lake edge, great for walking, jogging, etc. We can hardly wait to return and thank you to Liz and Renee (managers) who made our stay a wonderful experience.

We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment for 3 nights on our self drive holiday. The apartment has a great location, awesome views and high quality modern facilities. You could make your own meals in these fully equipped apartments or it's close enough to town to eat out. Would definitely stay again, we have paid alot more for alot less in quality!

From the moment you walk into the reception area, you know you are somewhere very special. We were very lucky to be in the penthouse to celebrate my husband significant birthday - beautifully appointed, spacious and stunning views. What a treat to soak in your own very private themal pool looking at the lake and beyond! Unfortunatley due to the weather we didn't see the mountains much. Liz is wonderful and looked after us very well - down to supplying bottled chilled water as the cold water function on our fridge wasn't working. Very quiet, very handy, and a 5 minute walk to Manuels for a beautiful dinner. We can't wait to go back!

Room Tip: If you can afford to do it - go for the penthouse!
