The Lodge

Set in the tranquil 254ha grounds of the Kinloch Club course, on the shores of Lake Taupo, the scenic hub of New Zealand’s North Island, this modern uber-luxury Lodge has been designed by multi-award winning Andrew Patterson of Patterson Architects. Perhaps New Zealand’s best internationally known and published architect. The Lodge interiors have been masterfully designed by Virginia Fisher who is renowned for her work involving luxury lodges and hotels both in New Zealand and around the world.

Their brief was to emulate a version of the Kinloch region namesake Scottish castle, but with a truly modern 21st century design concept. The main lodge, with local schist stone exteriors features dramatic framed vistas of the sensational views of the golf course and the ever changing Lake Taupo. A commanding gangway entrance to the lodge leads to the lush central courtyard on guest arrival, with outdoor fireplace and reflecting pool. Arriving in the Great Room, a baronial feel of lush textures – velvet, fox fur, brass and copper then lead to The Dining Room, a bold but modern calm of whitewash, light and airy with seating of banquettes and lush sofas. The Bar which harks back to a time of leather and rock surfaces, cowhide, goat fur and burnt wood flooring is masculine and intense. For private dinners or meetings, The Den is regal – soft and warm with silver and golds, slate floors and lush New Zealand designed wool rugs.


Come and experience for yourself the extraordinary natural beauty of Taupo, only a 45 minute flight from Auckland. A short stroll from the lodge are the luxury 1 and 2 bedroom villas and 1 bedroom junior suites, which are ‘quiet’ in design and harmonise with the magnificent natural setting of this 18-hole lakeside links course. Dark stained villa exteriors lead from outdoor patios and furnished terraces to interiors of calm and sophistication. Experience huge views of the course and lake, carbon neutral fireplaces, oak floors, sumptuous handmade New Zealand rugs and luxurious bathrooms with stand-alone tubs in all ensuites, enveloping you with a feeling of peace. Patterson and Fisher have applied their formidable skills on the exterior and interior design creating expansive accommodation spaces.
