Huka Lodge is located just 300 metres up stream from the famous Huka Falls. It started as a simple fishing lodge on the banks of the Waikato River some 60 years ago, attracting anglers from around the world. Today, the now-luxurious lodge lures anyone seeking the very best in New Zealand accommodation.

The main Lodge has an understated elegance and is a welcoming haven where, in the evening, guests gather in front of the blazing log fires with a drink or two and share stories of the day. The rich warm floors and antique country furniture and complemented by woven wool fabrics and carpets designed to reflect the richness of Huka Lodge's surroundings. The intense deep greens and blues echo the river and forest and touches of red mirror southern sunsets.
