We were looking for time out from a busy life and we found it at the Flying Trout Boutique Lodge. The unit was so quiet and comfortable (the bed was great). We gave the spa on the patio lots of use... it was so relaxing. Rob and Karen are the perfect hosts, making us feel welcome. The breakfast is not to be missed, definitely five star, including a good gluten-free selection.

On arriving we were warmly greeted & shown our respective suites, & presented with with a bottle of wine. Location & views were amazing, the entire lodge is beautifully decorated & there was nothing that was too much trouble for the hosts The all inclusive breakfast was next level from the fresh fruit to the amazing cooked breakfast selection. The two suites we had were superb, having a spa on the decking under the stars was lovely. On arriving back at our rooms we found them fully serviced & restocked (including the complementary chocolates) after a day exploring was much appreciated.

The most relaxing, peaceful place to stay, the attention to details was exceptional. The most comfy bed and room with all the items you would ever need (air con, tv with sky and Netflix, fridge). A spa outside your room with seating area with views of Lake Taupo. An amazing breakfast spread which will keep you full until the evening and there is something for everyone’s taste. Oh and a full sized billiards table and chocolates and wine on arrival. An amazing hosts, so kind and full of helpful local information. We will be back to stay again!
