Another Great Stay!

"This is a wonderful place- well managed immaculate apartments, beautifully appointed and an excellent management team. Sadly we only stayed a night passing through but are planning a longer stay in the not too distant future. Cindy and Chris are wonderful hosts- they run a great place and are very helpful and approachable. I wouldn't consider staying anywhere else in Taupo! This is the best!"

Excellent stay in 3 bedroom penthouse apartment with private spa

"We stopover in Taupo on our way back home from Hastings and stayed a night in Sacred Water Apartments. We stayed in the 3 bedroom penthouse apartment. The apartment had 3 bedrooms, a family area which could turn into the 4th room, an ensuite in the master room and a family bathroom with bath tub. The kitchen had everything we needed to prepare our meals. The living area was huge and the dining area was next to the living and had a big table. There was an outdoor spa at the balcony overlooking the lake view. It had washer and dryer to use. The apartment was air conditioned. There were gym and swimming pool if you feel like using them.

At the price of $700+ we think that it was worth the money but a night stay was too short for us to enjoy the facilities"

A wonderful place to stay when you're in Taupo

"We stayed in the 2-bedroom penthouse. It had very big rooms with fantastic lake views. The penthouse was very warm with underfloor heating, so we didn't bother with using the heat pumps. The outdoor hot tub on our own rather large balcony was great and super clean. Absolutely recommended!
p.s. normally we dine out a lot while on holiday but this place was so special we ate in the whole time we were there!"

Ultimate Family Holiday

"We stayed in the 3/4 Bedroom Lakefront Penthouse and we loved it! It was spacious and had modern amenities with a functional kitchen. The penthouse has spectacular panoramic views of the lake from the balcony which also featured a hot tub which we all enjoyed. The location is very accessible and close to the lake with its own closing gate leading directly to the lakefront; perfect for walks around the lake or using their complimentary bicycles. Bedrooms were also spacious, well-thought-out and beautifully presented with 2 of these featuring ensuites.

Cindy and Chris were very welcoming and made our stay effortless from the moment we arrived. We definitely look forward to returning to Sacred Waters!"

Perfect holiday and accommodation

"We stayed in the three bedroom apartment. The location is in the heart of Taupo. The views of the lake are perfect. The apartment was so comfortable, clean, had everything we needed. The hot tub was our favourite. The apartment was warm which was perfect in the cold weather. We will definitely be back to stay here. We loved every moment. Thank you Cindy and Chris for your hospitality and warm welcome. Definitely worth every cent. Thank you. "

Excellent Place to stay

"We had a family get together for my Big Birthday, 23 people plus a baby and just had a wonderful time. Great location, great apartments & staff. We all enjoyed the location and the layout of the Apartments. Excellent for these gatherings or just a get away."

Amazing penthouse with excellent service

"A group of four friends staying one weekend in Sacred Waters Penthouse suite. It was safe to say the place was amazing and clean. Both Chris and Cindy were always willing to help us with any queries we had, and were always happy to tailor our requests. Great attitude and always served us with laughs and smiles. There was also free bike hire available, which we utilised the most we could. Great way to promote healthy and environmentally transport."

Highly recommended for a Holiday

"Love the Hot Pool.. it's got a shallow area for my 4 year old daughter to swim. The rooms are very tidy. Our room got private access to the pool and lake. It even has a hot tub but got no time to use it. It has beautiful outdoor furniture for a family to enjoy. They also have free bike hire. Got free garage parking. Highly recommended. "

"Love love love Sacred Waters!!! Definitely going to be the place we book every time we go to Taupo! Bed was super comfy, spa and pool were amazing, we had SPECTACULAR views of the lake and mountain. I just don’t think you can get any better. Cindy was very lovely and welcoming such a lovely lady to talk to. Thank you Sacred Waters we will be back!"

Go Penthouse!

"Right from when we arrived to when we were farewelled, the service was spot on! We had a family celebration and we were adequately housed in the Penthouse with more space than we knew what to do with. The kitchen was well equipped and the rooms were cosy despite the noise of the traffic.

The heated pool and the hot tub were much appreciated by our family as were the amazing views!

Cindy and Chris are great hosts and we certainly hope to stay again sometime soon."

"Sacred waters is a beautiful accommodation spot! We were a group of six and got a ground floor apartment. The apartment is well laid out with all the living/entertainment areas at the front, soaking up the sunshine and views of the lake. It was clean, warm and spacious. The staff were friendly and great at showing us around. We would definitely stay here again!"
