Cindy and Chris were great hosts.Sacred Waters is a lovely place to stay. We had a fabulous family weekend there combining it with the Taupo cycle challenge. Unfortunately we left some luggage in our apartment,however Cindy ensured it was returned to us promptly.This was greatly appreciated and I would recommend the lakeside apartments to anyone contemplating a luxury weekend in Taupo.

Nothing but the best
Amazing facilities, outstanding service and a brilliant location - couldn't be faulted!

Fair 4.0
Overpriced and underwhelmed.
A disappointing experience. There was no view of the lake, and the unit felt strangely unwelcoming. The manager, Cindy, was not at all accommodating. Despite the high cost of the unit, she refused to give us extra coffee pods or milk, although she did offer to sell them to us!
Anthony, us2 night trip
Good 6.0
This is stated and priced as a luxury apartment but be warned that not all the rooms have air conditioning ie no central air conditioning/ temperature control in the apartment which is really quite unacceptable. The beds and bed linen is of poor quality. Also, beware that you may be booking a 2 or 3 bedroom apartment which is supposed to sleep x number of people but there is an additional charge for each person.

Very good 8.0
Great but....
The apartment was clean, modern and well equipped with great accessibility to the lake. My one tiny complaint was that they don’t replenish your coffee capsules! We were given 6 at the start of our 2 night stay. We liked the place so much that we extended it for another night but they wouldn’t top up for free our coffee capsules nor would they even replace the tissue paper in the room even though we only started with a half-filled one. Strange to be stinging on such small items.

Great stay
Booked the four bedroom unit. The unit was well maintained. It had a jacuzzi on the balcony and a working kitchen. View of the lake is also magnificent. Owner Cindy is also very helpful.

Top Notch!
An AMAZING accommodation. We weren’t there nearly long enough to enjoy it properly. The apartment was spacious, the pool beautiful, and the walk to the lake stunning!
