Re­sort starts its own jour­ney


Aca­cia Bay’s Lake Taupo Hol­i­day Re­sort is leav­ing the TOP10 hol­i­day park um­brella to fo­cus on cre­at­ing the ‘‘clas­sic’’ Kiwi hol­i­day park.

Own­ers Tr­ish and Lloyd Lusty ran the busi­ness with TOP10 for 21 years, but are ready to be­come in­de­pen­dent.

‘‘We are ready to stand on our own two feet,’’ Tristy said.

Lloyd said the new brand will of­fer a ‘‘trop­i­cal is­land’’ take on Ki­wiana.

‘‘When we opened our ther­mal la­goon pool and swim-up bar last year, it was clear that Lake Taupo Hol­i­day Re­sort had evolved into a cat­e­gory of its own; a des­ti­na­tion for the clas­sic Kiwi hol­i­day that we all know and love, but with a trop­i­cal is­land twist,’’ he said.

‘‘It’s a big step for us, but we are so proud to be of­fer­ing a des­ti­na­tion where so many mem­o­ries will be made.

‘‘A hol­i­day at Lake Taupo Hol­i­day Re­sort will be about the nos­tal­gic mem­o­ries we all have; run­ning around as kids, spend­ing qual­ity time with fam­ily and friends and mak­ing new ex­pe­ri­ences,’’ he said.

The re­sort will con­tinue to de­velop its brand.
