Thanks for your review and your nice compliments Bev. Much appreciated. Glad you like the new setup.
So peaceful and relaxing here, close enough to Taupo to not miss out on the action but far enough away that you can relax without any crowds. Amazing sunsets! Kayaks and row boats to use along with life jackets
Thank A TripAdvisor Member

Thankyou so much for taking the time to review the Lodge. I really appreciate your positive feedback.
So close to the lake, beautiful view, extremely clean and comfortable, Sue is so friendly and helpful.5 minutes out of town, it is peaceful and right by the river. A Kiwi treasure. We will be back again and again.

Hi Robin, thanks for your enquiry. Anytime's a good time to stay at Waitahanui Lodge! Jan, Feb and March are all good months here during summer. You could all be accommodated in Rooms 3, 4 and 5 which are available together in early February.
The tariff for 10 people in those 3 units would be $547 per night. You can see photos of all those rooms on the Rooms page of our website.
