Nestled on 2,500 acres of native old-growth forest, the picturesque Treetops Lodge and Estate invites you to relax in this natural wonder. Trout-filled lakes, chilled streams and cascading waterfalls dot the grounds - a haven for local birds and wildlife.
Named by Conde Nast Travel + Leisure readers as one of the best lodges in the world, Treetops Lodge welcomes you to their uniquely New Zealand lodge. The main lodge is the heart of the estate, housing a spacious dining room, games room, lounge and sunny conservatory with tall glass windows perfect for enjoying the scenery from indoors. Details like hand-carved overhead beams and copper lighting fixtures bring a touch of elegance to the main lodge, accented by local artwork and handicrafts that reflect the Maori culture and history of the region.
Four cozy Lodge Suites each include en suite bathrooms, plush bedding, warm wood finishes and a light, airy decor that evokes the atmosphere of an intimate guest room at an old friend’s home. In the Lodge Wing, groups and families may make use of the attached common area with a full kitchen, living and dining areas and views out onto the estate. For travelers looking for privacy, the secluded Valley and Forest Villas are each available for exclusive use.
The sprawling acreage of the estate is a playground for nature lovers. Streams chock full of rainbow trout run throughout the property, feeding into the many relaxing waterfalls that drop lazily over the rocky ridges. Endless trails are yours to cherish by foot, horseback or via safari vehicle, as guides take you through the virgin forests, past geological marvels and the timeless beauty of the Mamaku Plateau. Take a drive to Lake Taupo, the largest lake in New Zealand, for sightseeing and fishing, or visit the Maori Center for a glimpse into the lives of these original inhabitants of the island nation.Request Information
