With its park-like grounds and array of activities for all ages and interests, Huka Lodge is the perfect place for families to spend time together, uniting them for delicious feasts at night after days spent having fun trekking, whitewater rafting, horse-riding or just playing board games by the fire at the Lodge.
Now Huka Lodge has created a two-night Family Time package to make it even easier to take the family away, including entry to popular local tourist attractions and a romantic dinner date for parents on one of the nights, courtesy of the Lodge’s team of babysitters.
The package, priced at NZ$1,071.62 per adult, per night for a two night stay, is available for two adults and two children (between 5 and 10 years of age) travelling together. Accommodation is in a Junior Lodge Suite, with an adjoining Escort room, subject to availability, and the package is available from 1 May to 13 September 2013.
The program includes the following: –
• Day One: Fun educational activity gift on arrival for children, after which the family can settle in and then depart for a guided walk at Opepe Historical Native Bush Reserve. At 6.30pm the family will dine together in one of Huka Lodge’s unique dining venues. A children’s menu offers favourites for the youngsters, while parents are indulged with gourmet treats.
• Day Two: Following a generous country breakfast, visit Taupo’s famous Prawn Park, followed by a picnic lunch at popular tourist spot Liliput Farm where children can hand-feed over 25 different species of animals and birds. In the evening a babysitter will entertain the children for four hours, while parents enjoy pre-dinner drinks with fellow-guests followed by romantic private dining for two.
The package includes GST and entrance fees for the family to all outside activities and transfers to and from the same. This same package is also available for families who elect to stay in either of the Lodge’s exclusive cottages, the Owner’s Cottage (with four bedrooms) and the Alan Pye Cottage (with two bedrooms). For these, it is priced at NZ$2,284.87 per adult, per night, for a two-night stay.
