This award winning lodge is a designer's delight, inspired by the Frank Lloyd Wright designs, it is set within magnificent landscaped gardens overlooking beautiful Lake Taupo and the mountains.
Lake Taupo Lodge reflects owners Gary and Shirley Akers love of beauty and quality. The focus is on gracious living and the six guest suites are luxurious examples of world class accommodation. All are en-suite, are superbly appointed, each with their own balcony or terrace and stunning lake or garden views. The three new executive suites "Frank" "Lloyd" and "Wright" and newly renovated "Pines" Suite have all been inspired by the same Frank Lloyd Wright architectural design (hence the original names!).

All the executive suites have a King sized bed or two single beds, telephone, writing table and chairs, fridge, mini bar, tea and coffee facilities, alarm clock, iron and ironing board.

The ensuite bathrooms have under floor heating, luxurious bathrobes, toiletries and hairdryer. Four of the executive suites have large baths as well as walk in showers. The others have large walk in showers.

Fresh flowers, seasonal fruit, milk and homemade cookies are in the room every day along with a selection of teas and coffee.

Lake Taupo Lodge prides itself in the care and attention that we put into our guests. From the moment you arrive you can relax and let us look after you in style and comfort. From the breathtaking lake and Mt Tauhara views to the gorgeous gardens that surround you there is an overwhelming sense of peace and tranquility.

Sink into the soft furnishings in the library in front of the fire or recline on a sun lounger in the seclusion of the gardens where native birds abound.

Enjoy a glass of wine in the main lounge with the lights of Taupo twinkling in the distance or share fascinating stories with fellow guests in the main dining room overlooking the beautiful Lake and mountains.

We stay in touch with the world in a special way through the perspectives of interesting people who stay overnight with us to share stories, dine, drink and sleep well. Here are just a few of the lovely comments that we have received along the way.

You will then cross the Waikato river at which point you will need to take a left hand turn into Norman Smith St (watch out for the Acacia Bay signs) follow this road until you reach the T section and turn left onto Acacia Bay Road (once again keep an eye out for the signs) follow this road for about 4-5 minutes. Once you arrive into Acacia Bay you will see a sign Welcome to Acacia Bay and a set of shops on the left hand side. From this point take the second road on the right, which is Mapara Road. We are the third driveway on the left up Mapara Road. We have a wood and stone fence with four large trees right on the road side.

Directions from Auckland / Rotorua are as follows: When Lake Taupo comes into view watch for the Acacia Bay signs, once found you will be turning right and then you will turn left into Acacia Bay Road 300mtrs later. Follow this road for about 5-6 minutes. Once you arrive into Acacia Bay you will see a sign Welcome to Acacia Bay and a set of shops on the left. From this point take the second road on the right, which is Mapara Road. We are the third driveway on the left up Mapara Road. We have a wood and stone fence with four large trees right on the road side.

We offer complimentary transfers from Lake Taupo Airport.
Parking Lake Taupo Lodge offers secure on-site parking free of charge.
Things To Do When taking into account the violent volcanic history of the region and the size of the lake, it is no surprise that the ecology of Lake Taupo is unique. In addition, the lake is land locked by the Huka falls, about 4 kilometres downstream of the lake outlet into the Waikato river, which acts as an effective upstream barrier to migratory fish. This means the biodiversity in the lake is limited to a few original species and those that man has introduced.

The following activities can be arranged and priced for you on application for conference groups and they make great work incentives for staff!!

FISHING
The first trout were liberated into the waters of Lake Taupo, New Zealand's largest lake in 1887. They were the Tasmanian Brown Trout and the Californian Rainbow Trout. With few natural predators, an enormous food supply and hundreds of kilometers of prime spawning streams and rivers flowing into the lake, they thrive. Today, with a self sustaining population of Rainbow and Brown Trout, the Taupo region has cemented its name as one of the world's premier fisheries

GOLF
Choose from the world-renowned Wairakei International Golf Club, Taupo Golf Club, Centennial or Tauhara Golf courses - all within a 15-minute drive from the township of Taupo.

HIKING
There are literally dozens of hikes available including around the lake, along the rivers, native bush and mountain trails. Maps for these hikes are available form the Taupo Information Centre on Tongariro Street.

LAKE CRUISES
There are several boats that cruise the lake on a daily basis (weather and sometimes numbers permitting) for sight-seeing trips. Some offer lunch or a romantic dinner on board.

SPAS
Taupo Hot Springs and Spa offers a truly unique experience. Enjoy a massage or facial, or bathe in the natural hot mineral pools. There are also natural pools at Spa Park on the Waikato River.

PRAWN PARK
Experience the world's only geothermal Prawn Park, a true New Zealand success story. Informative guided tours introduce you to their unique way of farming prawns in Taupo. Enjoy a wonderful meal relaxing at the riverside restaurant.

DAY WALKS/HIKES
Tongariro National Park, a World Heritage Park and home to three volcanoes and many beautiful hikes, including the Tongariro Crossing, one of the most spectacular one-day hikes in New Zealand.

GEOTHERMAL PARKS
Taupo is at the centre of New Zealand's volcanic plateau. The area contains numerous parks where you can wander among geysers, mud pools, and colourful pink and white terraces formed by the silica in the thermal water. 'Craters Of The Moon' is free to walk through, although a donation will be gratefully accepted.

HORSE TREKS / FARM EXPERIENCE
There are several horse-trek companies operating in Taupo. Whether you are an experienced rider, or keen for a gentle walk, they will have just the horse for you. Trek through native bush and pine forest with lake, mountain and township views.

DAY TRIPS
Waitomo Caves. Famous for its black water rafting and glow worms.

Hawkes Bay, famous for its wine as well as the art deco architecture of Napier and several beautiful beaches.

Rotorua, New Zealand's version of Yellowstone, with active geysers, mud pools, mineral spas and Maori culture.

Whakatane, where you can take a boat out to the active volcano on White Island, charter a fishing boat for the day, or enjoy swimming in the Pacific Ocean at Ohope Beach.

WINE
One of the finest wine cellars in New Zealand is Taupo's own 'Scenic Cellars'. The Wishart Winery is less than a 5 minute drive from town. The Hawkes bay is only a 1.5 hour scenic drive away with stunning wineries and Art Deco architecture.

SHOPPING & CAFES
The town of Taupo is relaxed and friendly, offering a wide range of restaurants, both outdoor and indoor cafes, art galleries and shops.
