Rural riverfront retreat.

Huka Lodge has enjoyed a location of great natural beauty, on the banks of the mighty Waikato River since it was founded as a simple trout fishing camp in 1924. The rustic-chic riverfront lodge is enhanced by 17-acres of lush park-like grounds and extensive, manicured gardens.

Insider Tip

Be sure to take a scenic helicopter flight over the magnificent Kaimanawa Ranges, the World Heritage site of Tongariro National Park.

Where You’re Staying

Huka Lodge offers 19 suites and two cottages. All suites feature French doors, a wooden terrace that overlooks the Waikato River, and bathrooms with deep soaking bathtubs, heated floors, and twin basins. Select cottages boast high ceilings and a spacious living room with an open fireplace.

Where to Dine

The Main Lodge building offers over 20 elegant private dining venues where hearty breakfasts and five course meals can be enjoyed in various indoor or outdoor settings. Authentic New Zealand cuisine can be served in The Library, The Study, by the Outdoor Fireplace, or in the Trophy Room.

Where to Relax
