On Lake Taupo on the North Island, the lodge is remote, but it is definitely worth staying here. Even the Queen of England enjoys staying at this relaxing outpost. Normal guests are treated the same royalty and can count on excellent accommodation and service. You can even fish on the lake during the day before you join your party in the restaurant for a meal to remember.
