It had been a few years since I’d stayed at The Hilton, Lake Taupo, but you have to admit the place is as reliable as ever when it comes to service, dining, relaxation and location.
Hilton Lake Taupo is just a few minutes from ‘downtown’ Taupo and only 15 minutes from Taupo Airport. All within a short distance you can explore the natural cliffs of the Huka Falls, tour the area’s mountain trails on horseback or mountain bike, go parasailing or just lounge poolside and marvel at the surrounding beauty.
Room with a view:
Choose from 113 contemporary rooms, suites and apartments in the Heritage Wing, which boasts spectacular lake and thermal valley views or, in their newer wing you’ll enjoy sweeping vistas of Lake Taupo or Onekeneke Thermal Valley.
For your leisure:
Hilton Lake Taupo has everything you need for a relaxing stay. Hit the fitness centre for a workout or play a match on the tennis courts. Personally I always head to the sauna, steam room and heated spa pool…great places to unwind at the end of the day.
Dine in style in the elegant Bistro Lago at the Hilton Lake Taupo. Choose from a selection of delicious dishes from the tempting menu, created by celebrity chef, Gareth Stewart, with an emphasis on quality, internationally sourced ingredients. Absorb the ambience created by the Bistro’s unique decor with welcoming open fires and leather furnishings in winter or dine outside in summer on the sweeping balconies where you can enjoy the spectacular view. This place is popular with guests and locals alike.
Feel at home in your contemporary 30 sq.m. Guest Room, which benefits from a terrace overlooking the thermally heated pool, and offers a spacious desk, a 32-inch LCD TV, WiFi access (available on request) and a bathroom with a walk-in shower. Enjoy your stay in the elegant Deluxe Room situated in the Heritage wing of the hotel with complimentary use of the tennis courts, sauna, thermally heated swimming pool and spa. Unwind in the spacious 35 sq.m. Guest Room Plus with stunning lake views, 24-hour Room Service and a marble bathroom with a large walk-in shower.
Spoil yourself with a choice of contemporary Suites and Apartments, which are perfect for a short break or long stays, featuring extra space and personal touches of home. The fully self-contained Apartments offer sweeping views across Lake Taupo, a fully equipped kitchen and your own private terrace. Relax in front of one of the two 32-inch LCD TVs located in the living room and bedroom and luxuriate in the spacious bathroom.
