With the best location in the city, amazing views of Lake Taupo and modern premium facilities in a clean and safe place, you'll definitely enjoy your stay at Tiki Lodge. It's truly a hidden gem!
Our new secure and modern facility is purpose-built with all our guests in mind. If you want to avoid the 'tourist bus crowds' then this is the place for you - relaxing and quiet but also very close to the centre of town if you would like to have a night on the town.
We're a two-minute walk to the town centre for great shops, cafés, restaurants, nightclubs and a mere two-minute walk to the shores of our famous Lake Taupo.
After experiencing the local adrenaline-pumping activities, a day's shopping or a night on the town, come home to the comforts of our clean, warm rooms. Relax in a lovely outdoor spa or sit on our large deck to watch the sunsets over our beautiful Lake Taupo and the Central Plateau mountains or enjoy a good book by our cosy fire.
With our large, well-equipped kitchen, free onsite undercover car parking, clean showers with hairdryers, BBQ on the deck, large quiet lounge and comfortable beds, your stay with us will be a memorable one.
Experience what the Maori good luck charm, The Tiki, means to the kiwis and learn a little of our culture.
The Tiki Lodge Whanau look forward to welcoming you to our lodge.
