About
Description
We are located opposite the main swimming beach just 1.3 Klms, a short pleasant stroll along the shores of beautiful Lake Taupo, to the main Shopping Centre, Restaurants and Vibrant Night Life. Our spacious Spa More Studios, Family Studios, One Bedroom and Family Apartments are tastefully decorated and furnished for your comfort. Our Studios and Apartments are quiet, without any road noises, making them suitable for Corporate or Free Independent Travellers wishing to have a quiet nights rest. They have been built to capture the warm Sun in Winter and to keep cool during the Summer months. The main Swimming beach is opposite our front door and, from our BBQ Area and Picnic Tables, there are wonderful views of the 3 Volcanoes and all the splendour of the lake with yachts sailing, fishing boats and water sports. Come alone, with your partner, bring your family or friends and request an interconnecting room. Stay for a night or for a week. Stay here while on a Business Trip or for Pleasure and Relaxation.
