Towards the end of the 1920s, a young Irishman called Alan Pye discovered a very special place in Taupo and established Huka Lodge. In 1984, the present owner fell under the same spell. His resources and passion have added luxury to the location and taken Alan Pye's dream through to today's reality. We invite you to explore a luxury lodge and surroundings, offering an elegant and welcoming haven where the guests enjoy the highest standards of comfort and hospitality.
