Snow-blanketed winter ski fields and alpine deserts. Ancient forests alive with birdsong. Trout-filled rivers and the thundering Huka Falls. Steaming geothermal valleys with rejuvenating hot springs. Three towering volcanoes in the awesome and otherworldly landscape of Tongariro National Park.

Wairakei Resort Taupō

Address: 640 Wairakei Drive, Taupō

Wairakei Resort Taupō offers excellent service, comfortable accommodation and plenty of leisure facilities amid the forested slopes of Wairakei Thermal Valley in the centre of New Zealand’s North Island. You can enjoy golf on our 9-hole course, play tennis on floodlit courts and visit the fitness centre for a game of squash. Two geothermally heated swimming pools and 6 outdoor hot tubs are complemented by an on-site spa.

The resort dates from the late 19th century when travellers were drawn to the region by its therapeutic hot springs and dramatic scenery. A short hike takes you to the geothermal pools that power the hotel, while many of the rooms, suites and villas offer panoramic views of Wairakei Tourist Park. A few minutes’ drive away, the Waikato River flows out of expansive Lake Taupō, creating the dramatic Huka Falls when it narrows to thunder through a 15-metre-wide canyon.
