This has to be one of the prettiest places I have ever been for lunch. My husband took me here for a three-course lunch at the end of March. The food was excellent, but the setting and the decor meant that they are the main things I rave about. I still can't believe somewhere so beautiful exists and you can access it for lunch. The food and service were excellent and the dining experience was very private. I understand there were three lunch tables to choose from on the day we went, two outside on the verandah and one elsewhere. We had our own private waitress and even though there was another couple having lunch that day, we were well distanced from them, so it made for a very private/luxurious lunch.

We loved everything about our 3-course lunch, from the service to the scenery to the fact that we were not rushed and were given 3 hours to enjoy our al fresco dining experience!

How can you describe Paradise in words? Huka lodge is an experience of excellence with their luxurious cottages and great spreads at dinner with the best of worldwide wines something that is created for the best of best. Tucked away in a private estate against a fast flowing river and extensive lawns and landscaping it takes away from the body into the senses. Tried a massage therapy in the room and it washeavenly. Clearly a treat in the senses for any discerning person.
