Amongst this 800-year-old forest, there are plenty of opportunities for families to make memories that they can cherish for years to come. Activities in and around the forest include archery, clay bird shooting, horse-trekking and mountain-bike rides. Children who wish to stay indoors also have plenty to discover, including traditional Maori crafts such as flax weaving and even music classes.
Located in a natural paradise, Treetops Lodge and Estate offers the perfect spot for a romantic getaway. Exclusive to the estate, take part in the 'Waterfall Wilderness' dining experience - a table-for-two next to a breathtaking natural waterfall. Dine on a five-course meal, based around produce home-grown on Treetops Estate and matched with New Zealand wines. Enjoy a twilight stroll back to the comfort of your accommodation - relax in a lodge, featuring architecture inspired by the country's past, or choose a Valley View or Forest Villa to experience a secluded feel alongside your partner.
Spa & Wellness
Combining the energy of New Zealand's native forest with indigenous therapies, Wilderness Spa aims to provide an experience of total relaxation. Located amongst the forest, enjoy a range of treatments from the Manuka Honey Body Scrub, utilising Manuka Honey sourced directly from the estate, to the traditional 'Mirimiri' massage. Even after the spa closes at 10pm, guests have 24/7 access to its two outdoor Jacuzzis, using water sourced from a dedicated deep spring, to continue enjoying their wellbeing experience.
Guests at Treetops Lodge and Estate are welcomed at, Treetops-owned, The Kinloch Club golf course. Designed by Jack Nicklaus, the 18-hole course provides panoramic views of New Zealand's largest freshwater lake, Lake Taupo, and features a design that aims to enhance the natural beauty of the area, allowing the landscape to shape each hole. The course is only a short helicopter flight or one-hour drive away from Treetops Lodge and Estate and tee-off times can be booked in advance.
Explore the local environment on foot or horse-back, or in 4x4 vehicles (with the aid of experienced guides). Alternatively, why not try your hand at fly-fishing in the 'trout fishing capital of the world'?
