Wairakei Resort Taupo offers excellent service, comfortable accommodation and a wide range of leisure facilities amid the forested slopes of Wairakei Thermal Valley in the centre of the North Island.


The resort dates to the 19th century when a hotel was erected to accommodate the travellers that were drawn to the region’s therapeutic hot springs and dramatic scenery. Since that time the original building was replaced with a purpose-built resort in the expansive landscaped grounds, with many rooms offering views of the tourist park.


The ample facilities  https://www.wairakei.co.nz/fitness-wellness/ include a public 9-hole golf course, two outdoor heated pools, six spa pools, fitness centre and sauna, tennis courts, squash court and sauna.


Enjoy multiple on-site food and beverage  https://www.wairakei.co.nz/food-drink/ options with the airy Pavilion Restaurant, our Fairways café (open seasonally) and Geyser House Bar offering a range of eating and drinking experiences.


The resort is located a convenient distance from numerous landmarks and outdoor activities including mountain biking, fishing, kayaking, boating, and in the winter months, skiing and snowboarding.  The mighty Waikato river flows directly from Lake Taupo over the thundering Huka Falls, while the Tongariro river feeds into the lake and is famous for its’ trout fishing.


Wairakei Resort Taupo is the perfect base for all your outdoor adventures.
