I experienced an extraordinary stay at Huka Lodge last week with my girlfriend and son. I was truly blown away by the property and staff. The GM Kerry and the entire team could not have been more wonderful, caring and attentive. We got caught in the rain one afternoon while out exploring and Kerry himself came to pick us up....

This is a beautiful lodge to spend you time. The staff is welcoming. The views everywhere are outstanding. Just breathing the air is a delight. Huka Falls are just a sort walk away. The food is wonderful, they will prepare anything for any type of diet. A exsperince worth having.
