The Alan Pye Cottage defines the fine tradition of generous hospitality and elegant living.

The Best Luxury Accommodation In Taupo

The Alan Pye Cottage defines the fine tradition of generous hospitality and elegant living established by Alan Pye and his wife at Huka Lodge 90 years ago. A legacy that drives us to this day to continue to find more ways to enhance the Huka Lodge experience for our guests, and to make it truly extraordinary. Look no further for the best luxury accommodation in Taupo.

Alan Pye Cottage takes every advantage of a superb location and sits above lush rolling green lawns and manicured gardens on the banks of the Waikato River, where the powerful and hypnotic turquoise green waters surge downstream on their way to the Huka Falls.

Where Elegant Style Is At The Heart

Built to exacting standards and utilising the finest quality heritage materials – cedar, heart timbers, stone and brick, the cottage draws on architectural elements from the 1920s and 1930s with strong reference to the sophisticated elegance of the English Arts & Crafts movement. This influence, in a contemporary re-interpretation, clearly pervades both the exterior and interior design of the Alan Pye Cottage.

Whilst spacious and faultlessly generous in execution, the Alan Pye Cottage boasts a cosy and intimate atmosphere due largely to an extraordinary level of attention to detail, combined with a deliberately eclectic style of furnishing and interior decoration. Rustic antiques overlay with museum-quality Maori antiquities, wonderful paintings and textiles rich in texture, with the colour palette drawing together stunning combinations of deep teal, lime and turquoise for moments of bold punctuation.
