HUKA LODGE

UNRIVALLED LOCATION

Set amongst a sprawl of verdant gardens, Huka Lodge is an iconic New Zealand retreat with an unrivalled location on the banks of the surging Waikato River.

Huka Lodge began life some 100 years ago as a humble fisherman’s camp, complete with white canvas tents strung along the riverbank. Today it’s one of the country’s most acclaimed luxury lodges, boasting impeccable standards of hospitality and a fabulous setting just 300 meters from the cascading Huka Falls. It has an exclusive feel with just 20 suites and two owner’s residences, each opening onto rolling green lawns just steps from the burbling river. Expect thoughtful amenities such as spacious dressing rooms, terraces and underfloor-heated bathrooms with sunken baths. Communal areas are beautifully adorned with antique furniture, historical portraits and interesting objets collected from around the world.
