“Lovely Apartment”
Reviewed January 20, 2013

My husband and I stayed at Sacred Waters for two nights in January 2013. We stayed in a Lake view apartment and had a wonderful view of the lake. The apartment itself was hugh, great big ranch sliders allowed you to enjoy the views and also gave you access to a big out door area, a hot tub in one corner and table and chairs at the other. Sunsets on the deck would be wonderful, except we never got the chance to experience that due to rain.
The apartment had a full kitchen of utensils if you chose to cook, coffee, milo and tea are provided. Renee our host was lovely and only to happy to help us out. Frontline staff are so important as first impressions count and her personality is such an asset to these apartments. When we return to Taupo, we wont look anywhere else to stay, we were very happy with what we found. The apartments were very comfortable, good beds, great size, clean and tidy with great views, what more could you want.

Wow, all I can do is echo the previous reviews. Beautiful, comfortable apartment with great view. We were in apartment 14 a large 3 bedroom 2 bathroom apartment. Easy access from the undercover parking, great pool and amazing wrap around balcony with hot tub. Close to town if you want to cook and stay in which we happily did as apartment was such a pleasure to be in. Would recommend a stay here, wish we were staying longer

After much research we decided on Sacred Waters for 4 nights over Christmas. We wanted somewhere clean, modern, convenient, family friendly (we have a 23 month old active son and with a view !

We made the right choice! Lake Taupo is a beautiful place and the accommodation at Sacred Waters - stunning.

Thanks to Renee & Liz for their hospitality. We LOVED our stay at Sacred Waters.

If you are looking for quality accommodation - this is IT.

Highlights for us;
* air conditioning (it was warm over Christmas)
* Walking distance to town
* easy access to the lakefront - we walked after dinner every night with our son in his pram
* Fully equipped kitchen that was modern and clean. Makes life so much easier with a toddler!
* two bathrooms
* Gorgeous pool and hot tub on the balcony
* Large balcony with AMAZING VIEWS - penthouse B (our son loved running around here)
* Private, central and lovely hosts :-)

Thanks Renee and Liz, we had a lovely Christmas at Sacred Waters !

We stayed three nights with my son and his girlfriend over Christmas 2012 and we cannot praise it highly enough.Renee gave us an upgrade to a three bedroom Lake View appartment as we had not seen our son for almost two years, this was so kind of her.
The kitchen had everything you could possibly need,and more, and everywhere else was SO comfortable with lots of space for the four of us.
The deck had a wonderful hot tub and 2 tables and chairs for 12.The views were amazing over the lake and we really didnt want to do anything else except enjoy being in the lap of luxury.
Renee and Liz could not have been more accomodating.. they even let us park our campervan in their own outside area as it was too tall for the underground garage.
We highly recommend a stay there.

Room Tip: The Lakeview appartments at the back are better as the front ones are overlooked by passers by on a...

We (family of 2 adults + 1 baby) stayed at Sacred Waters in January 2013 and wanted to pass on our extremely positive experience.

Despite arriving late after reception opening hours, we were still greeted in person by Rene who helped us set-up a travelcot for our baby and checked to make sure we knew how everything worked in the apartment.

The apartment itself had stunning views of Lake Taupo and was both luxuriously furnished and equipped with all mod-cons including laundry, fully equipped kitchen, complimentary WiFi internet, car parking space and direct access to the lakeside. Sacred Waters also has a pool (we did not use it but it looked very nice) and gymnasium (unfortunately had baby in tow so also did not use).

Having lived in Asia for the past 10 years we have high standards for our holiday accommodation and Sacred Waters surpassed all our expectations.

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.
