This is #1 for direct right on the lake views. We stayed in a lakefront 3 bedroom apt literally 15 steps from the waters. It was very very quiet as the main road is behind the hotel unlike most of the oldet hotels in Taupo which actually faces the main road that runs along the lake. From here, it is...

Stayed in Taupo for one night at Sacred Waters. Booked a two bedroom apartment and got upgraded to a lake view apartment which was magnificent. The premises are of an extremely high quality and meticulously clean. They are fitted out with everything you could possibly need. Highly recommend.

Quick stop in Taupo and wish we stayed longer. This place was by far the best experience of our NZ tour. We always heard stories of 'kiwi hospitality' and Sacred waters was a prime example of this. Even though this place is sold as serviced apartments its run more like a 5 star resort! We arrived late and were greeted...

We arrived around 4pm without a booking. I was a bit surprised to be told there was nothing available other than the Penthouse which was $540 per night. It was mid week and not school holidays. I was told 'well if you had of phoned first we would have told you we had nothing available' which I thought was a...

A mid week escape from reality, upgrade to lakefront was welcomed and the hot pool on the deck was a highlight. Fixtures & fittings were top rate & the service at check in was friendly but professional. Great place to recharge your batteries.

My sister and I wanted somewhere special to stay for a few days and we certainly got that! Our apartment was truly gorgeous, lovely decor, furniture and the layout worked so well for us and my nieces - 3 generous bedrooms and 2 luxury bathrooms. The view was to die for and the thermal hot tub on the decking was...

The location, layout and facilities of these apartments are superb but I do not think the furnishings are up to 5 star standard - the main bed was not good quality - roll together - old springs , shower didn't work properly but was being fixed - furniture OK but not special

If you've ever gone somewhere on vacation and checked into where you're staying and thought, "You know, I could just stay here my entire time" -- that's what we experienced. With a stunning view of Lake Taupo, big balcony with a private tub, easy access to the waterfront and cafe nearby -- we just hung out and had one of...

We stayed at this stunning lakeside apartment complex for 2 nights and were blown away by the views and location. Our 3 bedroom unit was fitted out immaculately and the views of Lake Taupo and beyond from our living area were breathtaking. Liz made us feel welcome from the moment we arrived and we had a fabulous time exploring Taupo...

Stayed here last night after a weekend in Wellington. We decided to break the drive back to Tauranga up by staying a night in Taupo on the way home and Im so pleased we booked this place.
