Amazing dinner venue selections--- many locations to choose. The gazebo by the river, the outdoor nook, the library, etc. were all wonderful. The staff were friendly and always helpful. The grounds are so quiet and peaceful. My fishing was great. My wife enjoyed reading, walking, tennis and other activities, while I was off fishing. Mark Aspinall was my guide. Mark...

Three nights at Huka Lodge. Bliss!!! My wife and I have a great time. The suites are facing the river with a deck to watch the world...or river go by. They are quiet and private. Service was just brilliant. Dining is unusual in so much as there is not a dining room as such but a number of areas both...

Everything is perfect at Huka ... Apart from one thing! Dinner took far too long to serve on our first night! With five courses plus various teaser canapés it can take nearly 2 hours! At one point we waited early 30 minutes between courses and with an excellent wine standing by in the glass this was poor! The following day...

From the moment of landing with the helicopter at the lodge, the caring and nice staff greeted my family and I. The lodge offers lots of activities which are extremely fun. The food is absolutely amazing which you can choose between a five or three course meal every night. After fishing, the chef would gladly prepare my trout for me...

From the moment we arrived we knew we were somewhere special. The lodge is very comfortable in an old worldy fashion, with dark wood, open fires and comfortable lounges. The service was very good. Just being at the Lodge is an experience, on the banks of crystal clear water above Huka Falls! Our guided fly fishing experience saw plenty of...

Everything about Huka is memorable, from the welcoming at arrival, the lunch, the chalet, the pre-dinner drinks which is an event in itself, dinner and the post dinner wines ports and cheeses. Absolutely outstanding - staying here is something truly special indeed. The service is spectacular, the grounds and location world class, the food even more so. A bucket list...

We love places like this as you get absolutely everything that you want. Friendly, discrete service. A beautiful room with all the space and facilities you need. A wonderful view from your terrace. Tremendous food served in any number of beautiful places around the property. Everything had been thought of. It's true, there isn't a TV in the room or...

We spent 4 nights at this amazing lodge in late October 2015 and had one of the best travel experiences ever. Every dinner was an event and absolutely delicious. Service was impeccable. Lodge rooms were well maintained and very relaxing. The best: catching a nice 1lb rainbow trout (catch and release only) with a fly rod right behind our room....

The setting is really quite special and the gardens are perfectly manicured. Everyone is super friendly, and genuinely so. The food (5 course menus every evening) is really quite good and they will accommodate to any diet. Really loved how you can choose different locations around the lodge and estate to dine, and love how many real wood fireplaces are...
