Sacred Waters Taupo Luxury Apartments

The apartment had the most amazing view, was big, all the mod cons, and an efficient heat pump for the cooler weather. The hot tub on the balcony was a real treat to relax the muscles and body after dinner. Beds were comfortable, the gym worked off the overeating, and a secure covered carpark. We had a lakefront, three bedroomed apartment which we enjoyed with our daughter and son-in-law

We were lucky to get upgraded to a penthouse room with an amazing view across the lake. Sitting in the hot tub on our private balcony enoying the view was a highlight of the weekend. The 2 bedroom apartment was huge and very well appointed. Definitely a place we will return to.

My mother and I stayed for a couple of nights in late April.

When researching for a place to stay in Taupo, I thought that Sacred Waters looked good, and was certainly not disappointed. The apartment was beautiful, with wonderful views over Lake Taupo. It greatly exceeded expectations. The upgrade to a Lakefront apartment was also sincerely appreciated.

We would like to return and have other family members accompany us. We'll certainly give glowing reviews of Sacred Waters to all our friends and family. Thank you Liz and Renee!

Great place to stay! The service was fantastic, and when we rang to ask about dropping off a hamper we were up-graded to the penthouse. It was our Dads 80th birthday and there was plenty of room for us all to be together to celebrate. Highly recommend

Absolutely magnificent views when the weather cooperates (and even when it doesn’t). This really is a lovely and comfortable place to stay and we found it friendly and quiet. We got a good deal by contacting the apartment manager directly and stayed in a Lakefront apartment. We were glad that we made this choice. Heated floors, spa tub on the balcony, free wi-fi, ice-maker in the fridge, skylights, heated towel rails – lots of luxurious touches. Good kitchen if you are planning to self-cater.

Our three-year-old son enjoyed feeding the ducks and seagulls down by the lake. We didn't find many dining choices close by – but if you go out of the gate towards the lake and turn left, you’ll find the Edgewater restaurant and Beach Bistro of the Millennium Resort just a few doors down (look for their jetty). The Edgewater Restaurant cooked the best meal we had during our time in New Zealand and a great dessert tasting platter. I highly recommend it.

There is a Countdown supermarket in the town centre and heaps of dining options there. The Body Fuel Café opposite the tourist centre has excellent coffee and sweet treats.

We loved the space of this grand apartment. As a family of 5, it was great to spread ourselves out in the luxurious surroundings. The apartment was very well equipped and made washing and cooking a pleasure! The children loved the pool, which was fantastically warm despite the cooling autumnal air temperature.
Just a couple of pointers, one for guests and the other for the owners. As a guest, it was well worth paying the extra for a lakeside view. For the owners, all of us found the lack of blinds/curtains on the smaller windows in the bedrooms quite a problem. Early waking is one thing but, in our bedroom in particular, the night light from a neighbouring property created a light room all night long. One to sort out I think. Despite this we loved our stay. Many thanks.

Room Tip: Lake view rooms are well worth paying the extra for.

I just can't think of a single criticism? We stayed in a 3-room lake-view apartment. It was quiet so the staff upgraded us from a 2-bedroom apartment. Good location, killer view, beautiful apartment, nice staff. What more can I say?

Room Tip: The lake view rooms obviously are more scenic - but all the apartments looked pretty good to me
