Sacred Waters Taupo Luxury Apartments

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 30 December 2013

Me and a group of my friends stayed at Sacred Waters in October 2013 to celebrate my 40th Birthday.
Upon arrival we were all upgraded, which was an amazing experience - my immediate party was actually upgraded to the Penthouse Suite. To say it was amazing is an understatement! The apartment was absolutely beautiful, spacious and everything you would expect from the 'Penthouse'.
We were greeted by one of the managers who made us all feel like nothing was a problem, friendly, helpful and just generally added to our excitement of being away in such wonderful surroundings.
I will definitely be coming back to Sacred Waters and can seriously find nothing to fault about our entire stay.
Make a booking in any of these apartments and I can assure you, you won't regret it. I know I can't wait to go back again.

Room Tip: If there is a group of you, try and splurge on the Penthouse - truly amazing experience and well wor...

We loved our 2brm-apartment in this beautiful town, and the 2 managers were very welcoming and helpful. The apartment had everything (incl laundry facilities), and the furnishings exuded calm and comfort. Air-con in each room was welcome. Will gladly return. A lift to the 2nd floor was a bonus, and the private garage for only our vehicle also a bonus.

We had an excellent celebratory weekend at Sacred Waters recently - it was a great place to stay for a treat. We booked a two bedroom apartment without a view (because I didn't expect the weather to be great in October and it wasn't). We were delighted to be upgraded to a four -bedroom apartment on the Lake edge. Although we didn't get to use the hot tub (which is filled with fresh water for each use) we did enjoy the outlook from the lounge. The bathrooms were well-appointed, with one ensuite bedroom. The hosts welcomed us warmly and our guest used the heated lap pool. Happy to recommend it for those who like a little luxury and being able to do some self-catering with a full kitchen.

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
