If you choose an outdoor ceremony, the rugged landscape, manicured Kinloch Club Golf course & impressive Lake Taupo create a natural and unique backdrop. Indoor ceremonies have the choice of our "great hall" or lounge areas, all set with luxurious furnishings & a grand interior tastefully designed by the award winning Virginia Fisher.
Following your ceremony, your guests will be free to enjoy our impressive modern uber-luxury lodge, with stunning schist stone exteriors feature dramatic framed vistas of the sensational views of the golf course and the ever changing Lake Taupo. A commanding gateway entrance to the lodge leads to the lush central courtyard to greet you and your guests, with an outdoor fireplace and reflection pool.
On arriving into the "Great Room" (pictured), a baronial feel of lush textures - Velvet, Fox Fur, brass and copper then lead to the Bar area, which harks back to a time of leather and rock surfaces, cowhide, goat fur and burnt wood flooring is masculine and intense.
Cocktails and Canapes can be served in variety of locations throughout the lodge.
Our stunning dining room is the ideal place to hold your reception. From your small intimate groups of 40-50 guests up to larger groups up to 100 guests. Views are to die for as you watch the sunset over the Western Bays of Lake Taupo.
Our experienced and professional in-house hospitality staff will take care of your every need in a friendly, non-intrusive way ensuring that your guests have the most amazing time with us. The adjoining "Grand Hall" is the perfect place to have your entertainment set up for the first dance and Cake cutting. This goes very well with our "Cheese Table" to unwind into the later hours of your evening.
You and your guests will be enchanted by our luxury accommodation. One and two bedroom villas, which are "quiet" in design and harmonize with the magnificent natural setting. Dark stained exteriors lead from outdoor patios with furnished terraces to interiors of calm and sophistication. Experience expansive views of our golf course and lake, carbon neutral fire places, oak floors, sumptuous handmade NZ rugs and luxurious bathrooms with stand-alone tubs in all ensuites, enveloping you with a feeling of piece.
