Alan Pye Cottage at Huka Lodge draws on architectural elements from the 1920s and 1930s with strong reference to the sophisticated elegance of the English Arts & Crafts movement. This influence, in a contemporary re-interpretation, clearly pervades both the exterior and interior design. The living/dining room has an open fireplace and features a very high ceiling and decadently comfortable furniture. Floor-to-ceiling opening doors feature on both sides of the room facing the river and the infinity style swimming pool on one side and the enclosed courtyard garden and outdoor pavilion, on the other.
There are two large and stylishly appointed suites, bathrooms with deep baths and separate showers and generous walk through dressing rooms. A well-equipped kitchen is set up for use by guests or take the shor stroll over to the main Lodge and dine there. A study is tucked away with desk, plasma flat-screen television and sound system. This room also has its own separate bathroom and can be readily converted into a single room, should it be required to accommodate an accompanying party.
Outdoor Living: A heated infinity-style swimming pool and a separate private spa pool have been integrated into the outdoor landscape. There is also a fabulous stone outdoor pavilion within a private courtyard garden, featuring a magnificent fireplace.
The tariffs for Alan Pye Cottage always include pre-dinner drinks and canap's, a five-course gourmet dinner with the menu changing daily, and full country breakfast. Guests have use of all Lodge amenities and we offer complimentary return Taupo Airport transfers if required
