We booked two apartments for my parents 80th birthday, there were 10 of us. We were accommodated with having them next to each other, there was also no problem with us cooking on a webber on the deck (can be quite smokey/smelly as they start). Both apartments had a thermal pool on the deck and views of Lake Taupo, the...

Sacred Waters is a luxurious hotel a few minutes drive from the town of Taupo. We were expecting the apartment to be right on the water, unfortunately it was behind another building which was a bit disappointing. As the price was premium. However the apartment was well appointed and beautiful. I did enjoy the thermal spa on the balcony!

I booked this online as a birthday treat. We stayed in a thermal 2 bedroom apartment which actually ended up being a very roomy and plush 3 bedroom with a lake view from the balcony and wo bathrooms. Thoughtful details made our stay great. Ice in the freezer, underfloor heating turned on, four different types of glassware, Nespresso coffee maker...

This place is the best accommodation we have for our New Zealand trip. Right next to Lake Taupo where you can stroll along the shore or use the bike available at the apartment to cycle around. The apartment is located 1 or 2 km from the town centre. We made use of the kitchen and laundry facilities during our stay...

We stayed here for two nights for Anzac weekend on our way to Wellington and it was worth every cent. We are a family of six and stayed in Penthouse A which was not just a serviced hotel it was a 300sqm luxury apartment, 3-4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms (can sleep 8) with an incredible balcony and views to die for....

Just a stunning apartment. Our family loved our stay here - felt very spoilt! Worth the extra expense. Well equipped with perfect views, comfy beds and convenient outdoor private bath. Lots of space both inside and on the outdoor terrace. Friendly staff. Easy parking.

Sacred Waters is a luxury apartment complex on the water's edge of Lake Taupo and a pleasant 20 minute lakeside walk from Taupo's bars and restaurants. We had a two bedroom (one en-suite, one not) one level apartment which directly looked onto the lake with only a footpath between our garden and the water. The apartment has a large lounge...

There was nothing to complain about with this apartment. The staff were helpful and nice and we were upgraded to a water view apartment. Everything about the apartment was luxurious - wonderful thermal tub on the balcony and heated pool in the complex. Direct access from the apartments to the lake walk. Can not fault Sacred Waters.

Fantastic accommodation, everything you needed for a stay in Taupo, including a swimming pool & exit onto the lake front. What impressed us though was that we booked a three bedroom apartment (as that was all was available) but when we checked out, without asking, the receptionist reduced the cost to reflect that there was just 2 of us -...

It's probably a bit unfair but I think the greatest impediment to an excellent rating was our short stay. Circumstances resulted in our arrival to Taupo at about 6pm and departure the next morning at 7:30am. The apartment was outstanding but didn't get a sense of Taupo at all, Sacred Water location, hotel amenities or service, etc. That said, based...
