“Stayed one night wish we stayed longer”
Reviewed January 10, 2013

We opted to stay at an apartment as were travelling from Hamilton to Palmerston North with my elderly mother, my husband, 9 yr old son and as I'm pregnant I didn't want to stay in a cramped hotel room either.
Taupo was a great place to stop and break the journey and we were impressed with the apartment. I rang sacred waters and spoke to Leone at reception because we could only stay one night and on the web site all the rooms were for minimum stays of two nights. Leone upgraded to a 3 bedroom apartment as this was available and was happy for us to just stay the one night. The apartment consisted of a king bedroom with an ensuite, another room with a double bed and a small but perfectly adequate room with a single bed.
We used the pool which my son loved, I guess if we were staying longer we would book in advance and request a closer apartment to the pool. We were on the 3rd floor but still overlooked the pool which was nice. In front of the pool there were more apartments that would have been lakefront and there was an access path that takes you down to the lake so you could walk and kids could play along the lake. The view of the lake was great and the place spacious. Highly recommend.

This is truly a home away from home with extremely well appointed, modern design and layout, and massive internal space - you could live here - totally relaxing. We could sit at the outdoor dining table and watch the kids play at the lakes edge through the glass fence. Staff are totally attentive and very friendly. So easy to drive into a private garage, walk through the door to see the mountains in the distance across the lake. Very inviting and rewarding.

Room Tip: Go for the lakeside units

Love staying here - location is perfect, no road noise - only the view of the lake and mountains and everything in between - boats, water activities, bird life and fresh air. The best - wish I could live there. Extremely private in all respects, undercover parking and wonderful service - nothing was a problem.

Room Tip: We have stayed in Apartment A and B on the top floor - either is great.

thank you for a very enjoyable three days. We loved the apartment and it really added to our stay in .It was great coming back in the evening to the view (definitely go for a lake view) and to the big bath on the balconey. Comfy beds, great bathrooms, well stocked kitchen and a quiet night's sleep. Worth the money.
