• A fabulous location overlooking Lake Taupo
  • One of New Zealand’s best golf courses
  • A superlative spa and beauty treatments

Lying pretty on the shores of Lake Taupo, Kinloch is delightfully luxurious. Sweeping views take in the lake, the lodge’s own golf course, and plenty of peace and quiet. The grounds are vast, and almost as elegant as the rooms. The suites and villas at the Kinloch Club are spacious, with outdoor patios, freestanding baths and lovely handmade New Zealand rugs, and some of the villas have fireplaces. The public rooms are just as well designed.

In more detail

The name might be Scottish castle, and the golf course could be in the glens, but The Kinloch Club is lined with contemporary chic and immersed in a beautiful part of New Zealand’s North Island. Local stone was used in the building of the main lodge, and texture is a key theme throughout, from the handmade rugs in each bedroom to the brass, copper and velvet touches in the welcoming Great Room to the silver and gold tones and slate floors in The Den and the leather and rock and burnt wood flooring in the stylish bar. Gleaming oak features in all the bedrooms, which range from junior suites to two-bedroom villas, all with expansive views and freestanding baths. The emphasis is as much on comfort as it is on style, and the spa offers a wide range of treatments. A tennis court serves as an alternative to the glorious golf course, and a pool and spa are due to open soon. The spectacular volcanic vistas of the Tongariro Alpine Crossing are close by, stunning to hike through before returning to the Kinloch’s firesides and fine dining.
