This might be the most romantic hidden-gem in Pukawa Bay; perched perfectly on the hillside looking out over the lush native greenery and blue waters of Lake Taupo. Welcome to Pukawa Country Lodge.

With the breathtaking, unobstructed views streaming in the east-facing windows, it will be hard to find a corner of this home that isn't drenched in natural light and blessed with a beautiful backdrop.

The contemporary decor here at Pukawa Country Lodge echos the stunning surrounding scenery and offers a warm and welcoming space to call your own. On a warm summer's day, open the doors and windows and feel the cool breeze off the lake, or if it's a little cool outside, get cosy by the wood burning fireplace.

Wake up to a freshly brewed morning coffee, best enjoyed from the spacious sundeck or the comfy lounge area. Plan your day as you stare out at the view, or simply free your mind and find your happy place.

A fully equipped kitchen awaits to prepare all your holiday favourites. Put together a few side dishes to go with your fresh BBQ feast, then head out to the deck to dine alfresco long into the evening. You'll stay warm thanks to the outdoor fireplace.

Whether you've been out exploring, or simply relaxing here at your home away from home, you'll love a relaxing soak in the large cedar spa pool with a glass of wine in hand. You know you deserve it.

When the day has come to an end, retire to the two bedrooms, each with its own bathroom.

Pukawa Bay, Omori and Kuratau are all a short five-minute drive away. Bring the boat, launch it at the nearby boat ramp, and spend the day out on the water. Or why not let the stress melt away at the Tokaanu Thermal Pools, less than 10 minutes drive away.

For a winter escape, Whakapapa is just 50 minutes drive and Turoa is 90 minutes away, making this home an ideal base for your next ski trip.

Discover a special spot to make extra-special holiday memories, here at Pukawa Country Lodge!

Stayed December 2021

This place was an awesome home away from home. Peaceful and great views.Lovely outdoor area and gardens. Very clean and tidy.

Stayed July 2019

Beautiful property out in the countryside with an expansive view of the lake, kitted with thoughtful touches throughout the entire space. Our Bachcare manager was responsive and helpful. We really didn't want to leave! Only issue was that the hot tub wasn't fixed as promised, and we weren't able to use it at all during our stay.

Bachcare replied

We're glad you had a lovely stay at Pukawa Country Lodge Henry and we're sorry that spa wasn't available for you. The spa is now working again so this won't be an issue in future and our team have been in touch with you to find a suitable solution. We do hope you'll come back and experience Pukawa Country Lodge again soon!
