Huka Lodge

TAUPO, NEW ZEALAND

GQ (Australia) - - GQ TASTE + TRAVEL -

The grand­daddy and pi­o­neer of New Zealand’s world-renowned su­per lodges, Huka is prob­a­bly the most chic back­woods res­i­dence you’ll have the chance to call home for a night. Perched on the banks of the Waikato River, this sprawl­ing prop­erty com­prises mul­ti­ple lodge suites, a cou­ple of pri­vate ‘cot­tages’ (though, don’t go ex­pect­ing a hum­ble log cabin) and 20 dif­fer­ent pri­vate din­ing rooms – should you call for a change of scenery. All open fire­places, taxi­dermy, white­washed tim­ber and rolling lawns. BEST BIT More than enough on of­fer for the out­doorsy types. For every­one else, we sug­gest a good book and glass of pinot noir. HOW MUCH? Rates are sea­sonal, but dur­ing spring they hover around $820 per guest per night – all in­clu­sive of meals, ac­tiv­i­ties and lodge ameni­ties. hukalodge.co.nz
