Huka Lodge

Long considered one of the top destinations in the world, this iconic luxury lodge located in the heart of the North Island

Set on 17 acres near some of the best rivers on the North Island, and known throughout the world as a top international location, Huka Lodge is the original luxury accommodation in New Zealand. From its humble beginnings in the 1920s, it has dramatically transformed itself into a standard of luxury within the country. 

As one would expect of an accommodation with Huka Lodge's reputation, the grounds are beautifully maintained and all guests have use of a swimming pool, spa, tennis, croquet and pétanque courts. Located on the Waikato River, the Main Lodge has a library and a study for quiet relaxation.

Choices for rooms range from 18 Junior Suites and one Lodge Suite.  The Lodge Suit offers a super king bed, large walk-through dressing, and beautiful en suite bathroom. This room connects to a well-appointed lounge with dining area that features a gas fireplace and en suite bathroom in the same style. An Owner's Cottage and the Alan Pye Cottage are also available on property for additional exclusivity and privacy. All Junior Suites are a short distance from the Waikato River and have french doors that open onto a wooden terrace.

Customer reviews

From all of us, thank you for a fabulous trip to New Zealand! We cannot begin to tell you how much we loved everything you put together for us! Every detail ran like clock work and each lodge was better than the last! A highlight was our daughter’s engagement at Cape Kidnappers where we were spoiled by the staff to a lovely wine cellar dinner! But add that to all the heli fishing and fine golf everywhere, we could not have had a more memorable, special trip! Many thanks for a great job on the part of you and your team.

I thank you for our wonderful trip to NZ. You and Bill are special people, and we look forward to keeping you as extended family! You are certainly welcome back anytime, and we will look forward to seeing your wonderful family if/when we get out to LA-- maybe Clippers in the playoffs? Blessings to your family.

I will get with Debi, and see which pictures make us look the youngest! If you need any "references or testimonials" that I could share, just let me know how I can help.
