Tauhara Sunrise

Tauhara Sunrise, Lake Taupo, New Zealand

The magnificent views to the east across Lake Taupo give rise to the highly appropriate name of this luxury lodge. The contemporary construction of the building is complimented by highly original artwork and smart modern furnishings. There are three guest suites, all with spectacular lake views, and all enjoying excellent en suite facilities. A full breakfast menu is served in the dining room or al fresco on the deck and guests are welcome to book for dinner in the evening. Before dinner, enjoy drinks from the complimentary bar, and afterwards soak in the six person hot tub with views of the city lights shining in the lake.
