- Welcome to Awahuri, Taupo Garden Lodge; Lake Taupo New Zealand. This Lodge is a small, elegant, fishing Inn, beside the mountain-fed Waikato River, surrounded by a beautiful 2.4acre garden and only 2k from town. The Two-Suite accommodation each with ensuite bathrooms is private, generous and has very comfortable beds, with Persian rugs and oil paintings in a restorative atmosphere. The Lodge theme is traditional; incorporating original paintings, NZ 'rimu' wood trim and panelling, a lovely collection of hand knotted oriental carpets, and a superb Danemann baby grand piano. A massive fireplace is used every night in cold weather. William and Suzanne Hindmarsh started planting the garden in 1964. Some of the trees are more than 60 feet high now, with masses of birds, Rhododendrons, Camellias and perennials around ponds and a waterfall - all creating a palpable, stunning tranquillity. A warm welcome awaits you!
