A tranquil riverside lodge in the wilderness of New Zealand’s North Island.
Dating back to the 1920s, this peaceful lodge sits on seventeen acres and borders Wairakei Park Reserve. Guests here will enjoy the area's leisurely pace and diverse landscape, including snow-capped volcanic mountain peaks and the clear blue waters of the Waikato River. Junior Lodge Suites, a Lodge Suite, the four-bedroom Owner’s Cottage and the two-bedroom Alan Pye Cottage comprise the property’s 25 rooms. Recreation comes in many forms: tennis, a heated swimming pool, spa pools and petanque and croquet lawns. Off-site, kayaking, hunting, fishing, hiking, horseback riding, golf and local tours can be found nearby. Of note for foodies are the more than twenty indoor/outdoor private dining venues, where guests can enjoy dishes from executive chef Michel Louws.
