We have been travelling the North Island with another couple, sometimes staying in apartments and sometimes in hotels. So far this is the best by far of the accommodation. It was convenient and close to the town centre. Renee was particularly helpful when we arrived, but the best aspect was the view over the lake to the snow capped Mt Ruapehu.

Sacred Waters location, swimming pool and quality of apartments is outstanding. Liz and Renee are great hosts. Kids spent 4 hours in pool one day, heated with thermal waters of Taupo it was warm even with 13 deg outside temp that we had in October.
A great escape from city for parents and kids.

The apartments have fabulous views, great facilities and a brilliant outside steel tub for relaxing in. The views are great up the lake but do have prevailing wind so had to had to have the door to balcony shut most of the time. Is also some distance to the town centre so needed a dedicated driver, taxi or car to go out for dinner if drinking. The inside small third bedroom room is windowless and stifling to sleep in as is the back bedroom which receives virtually no airflow - but has a standing fan in the room and for this we marked sleep quality lower.The master bedroom is superb though. Need to also mention the service of the lady at the counter who seemed quite passive aggressive. Maybe not a happy fit for the hospitality industry? A rather odd experience in such great apartments (and price) and would visit but only as a couple.

Room tip: Outside bath takes only minutes to fill

We where travelling across nz with a party if 5 and booked in for one night and stayed on for 3 nights. A magic spot and the best accommodation. Excels on all levels. The under floor heating was perfect and the balcony bath filled with thermal waters direct from the lake was so healing and relaxing.
The service was brilliant and staff so helpful and happy
See you again soon

Simply the best place to stay in Taupo, no contest. Just had our third stay here and as usual made to feel very welcome by the helpful staff. The apartments are stunning, really comfortable with incredible views of the lake- we always book the same apartment which opens directly onto the lakefront path. I wouldn't stay anywhere else in Taupo.
