There was nothing to complain about with this apartment. The staff were helpful and nice and we were upgraded to a water view apartment. Everything about the apartment was luxurious - wonderful thermal tub on the balcony and heated pool in the complex. Direct access from the apartments to the lake walk. Can not fault Sacred Waters.

Fantastic accommodation, everything you needed for a stay in Taupo, including a swimming pool & exit onto the lake front. What impressed us though was that we booked a three bedroom apartment (as that was all was available) but when we checked out, without asking, the receptionist reduced the cost to reflect that there was just 2 of us -...

It's probably a bit unfair but I think the greatest impediment to an excellent rating was our short stay. Circumstances resulted in our arrival to Taupo at about 6pm and departure the next morning at 7:30am. The apartment was outstanding but didn't get a sense of Taupo at all, Sacred Water location, hotel amenities or service, etc. That said, based...

We stayed in a ground floor 3br apartment at the front. Excellent accommodation with stunning views. Double garage. Pool was 28 degrees and while only small was great. Only concern was limited WiFi and apartment above a little noisy. Highly recommend

As the saying says 'you get what you pay for' , this property is just mind blowing! We were upgraded to apartment 2, which was directly on the lake. The rooms were huge & the views from the large sliding doors were amazing! Did i forget to mention the thermal hot tub! Well.....i think we had died & gone to...

We chose an apartment right on the beach. Fantastic vista and great access to the beach and hot springs and the walking/biking track . Managers could not be more helpful and did everything and more for us. Highly recommended

Lovely apartment with good facilities Very disappointing at the end - what appeared to be the manager gave me and the kids an unnecessary glare as we moved a brand new kids bike from our room, and without saying anything to us laminated a sign and put it next to the lift saying 'absolutely no bikes' in the apartments ......

Thank you for your review. I do apologise if you felt I gave you and your children had an unnecessary glare, but as I'm shorted sighted and didn't have my glasses on, I was just trying to focus on who was above me on the landing by the lift, I did give a second glance as I did notice that...

This is #1 for direct right on the lake views. We stayed in a lakefront 3 bedroom apt literally 15 steps from the waters. It was very very quiet as the main road is behind the hotel unlike most of the oldet hotels in Taupo which actually faces the main road that runs along the lake. From here, it is...

Stayed in Taupo for one night at Sacred Waters. Booked a two bedroom apartment and got upgraded to a lake view apartment which was magnificent. The premises are of an extremely high quality and meticulously clean. They are fitted out with everything you could possibly need. Highly recommend.

Quick stop in Taupo and wish we stayed longer. This place was by far the best experience of our NZ tour. We always heard stories of 'kiwi hospitality' and Sacred waters was a prime example of this. Even though this place is sold as serviced apartments its run more like a 5 star resort! We arrived late and were greeted...
