Lodge | Pukawa Bay | #30426
This beautiful property is a tranquil and luxurious retreat. Spacious and elegant it features 5 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms, state of the art kitchen, large dining area that opens up to the wrap around decks, 2 lounges with open fire, mezzanine snooker room with open fire, fenced outdoor pool and beautiful landscaped gardens.
Pukawa Lodge is located just off SH41 on Pukawa Road.
Pukawa Bay is one of the most beautiful bays on Lake Taupo. It is completely private and has wonderful clear water. The beach of volcanic black sand means it is ideal for families and safe swimming. There are a couple of seating areas, an open space for sports and traffic is kept to a minimum.
This is the perfect base for fishing the Tongariro River, white water rafting, walking the Tongariro Crossing, skiing Mt Ruapehu, relaxing in the natural hot pools of Tokaanu or simply exploring the southern end of Lake Taupo.
The main village road takes you all the way to the boat ramp for easy access to the water. Essentially you need a car here, however there are lovely signposted walks through the native bush to neighbouring bays of Kuratau and Omori, where there
is a village shop and cafe.
The beach is great for swimming from, or taking out your boat, or kayak.

* 35 Minutes drive to the snow slopes of Whakapapa
* The hot pools of Tokaanu are 9 minutes away and the restaurants and supermarkets of Turangi are 12 minutes away

WOW!!! Is all I can say! What a spectacular property! Apart from the fact that it’s totally stunning, it was the little things that made our stay even better. We were greeted at the property and given all information needed. It made us feel like royalty lol. Comfy beds, gorgeous linen and towels HIGHLY recommend this place and really great value! The property was even better than the photos. Thanks so much for having us ?
Was a very private property with absolutely stunning views of Lake Taupo. All rooms had their own bathroom and there was everything you needed for your stay - just bring your toothbrush and some food! It was a bit too cold to use the pool but the spa pool was a welcome break after attending a wedding and reception.
