Step inside this 5-star, award-winning lodge, and immediately feel at home. Staying at Tauhara Sunrise Lodge is like staying with friends and family, yet with all the luxuries of lodge accommodation: Luxuries like 600 thread-count sheets and Egyptian cotton towels; sumptuous bathrobes; exquisite toiletries; hairdryers; complimentary beers, wines, sodas and mineral waters; complimentary in-suite ethernet access; and complimentary laundry service. Engage in good conversation, and partake in complimentary drinks & hors d'oeuvres with Rob & Becky and other guests. (Or, if you prefer to enjoy your privacy, your wishes will be respected.) A lovely bar and restaurant is located just 2 minutes away, and a wide selection of restaurants, cafes and bars are less than 8 minutes away in Taupo. Tauhara Sunrise Lodge is the ideal honeymoon retreat in Lake Taupo.

Since 2002, Tauhara Sunrise has been hosting honeymooners from around the world, drawn to Taupo by its exquisitely romantic setting amid mountains & lakes forged by volcanic forces, its plethora of adventure activities, and its central location which enables easy day trips to Rotorua, Waitomo Caves, the World Heritage Tongariro National Park, Hawkes Bay wine district, and the active volcano on White Island. Our New Zealand honeymoon guests now have a new choice in luxury accommodation: Chalet d'Amour, a romantically appointed cottage, located in the rear garden of Tauhara Sunrise, offering all the luxuries imaginable, plus breathtaking views of majestic Lake Taupo and the glistening city lights at night.

Facilities: Each of the three guest suites at Tauhara Sunrise Lodge has its own en-suite, and floor-to-ceiling windows to capture the lake and mountain views. The downstairs suites (White Cliffs King Suite and Lake Taupo Queen Suite) have access to a self-contained kitchenette, with a fully stocked refrigerator and facilities for making tea and coffee. The upstairs Glimmering Lights suite includes a double spa bath and also has private access to tea and coffee facilities and a fully stocked fridge. All guests have access to the lounge/reading room, with log fire, computer with high-speed internet access, and a library of books to browse. All guests also have access to the extensive patio - a great space to relax with a good book and perhaps a glass of wine - as well as the rear courtyard which is surrounded in native plantings and features a soothing water feature. And speaking of soothing, why not enjoy the ultimate in pampering - a relaxation massage from Becky, who received her qualifications from the prestigious Lauterstein-Conway School of Massage in Austin, Texas.
