Founded in the 1920s, this iconic New Zealand retreat is consistently ranked amongst the very finest in the world.

Every last detail for guest comfort has been considered and service is both solicitous and seamless. Cuisine continues to define the legendary hospitality of the property along with over 20 private dining venues, both indoors and outdoors, which are truly sublime and deliberately romantic.

The Lodge nestles amongst 17-acres of mature and manicured gardens on the banks of the mighty Waikato River, upstream from the Huka Falls. All 18 Jnr Lodge Suites, one Lodge Suite and the two private cottages enjoy views of the hypnotic and powerful deep turquoise-green waters as they flow by.

Butler service and a personal chef are both available.
