Founded in the 1920s, Huka Lodge is considered to be the iconic New Zealand retreat. Sought by the world’s most discerning travellers – enjoying an unrivalled riverside location, offering superb hospitality and an attentiveness as palpable as the force of the Waikato River itself.

These comprise 18 Lodge Rooms, one suite and the two exclusive Huka Lodge Cottages. The Owner’s Cottage provides secluded accommodation for a maximum of eight guests within four bedrooms and the superb new Alan Pye Cottage has two bedrooms for four guests.

Cuisine continues to define the iconic nature of the hospitality experience at Huka Lodge. Over the years Huka Lodge has been fortunate to have had many outstanding chefs, cooking superb food for its guests.
