Come and Relax in our Private Paradise; take the Tiaki Promise


Te Moenga Lodge is a special place to stay located high above Acacia Bay, Lake Taupo. Following extensive renovations, the lodge offers guests a peaceful place to relax and enjoy the incredible Lake Taupo region. From hiking the Tongariro Crossing, visiting the iconic Maori Carvings or biking the trails nearby, there are plenty of activities on offer. If relaxing is more your style you can enjoy a soak in a natural thermal pool, a quick visit to Huka Falls or maybe a stroll along our beautiful lake front. The options are endless and right here on our doorstep.

The bed and breakfast accommodation provides the comfort and relaxation you'll need after a day of action and activity around The Great Lake area. 

We have suitable accommodation for weekend travellers, couples on a getaway, right through to families who want somewhere to base themselves and explore.

Meet your Hosts


Te Moenga Lodge has been our home for the last four years and is a place we enjoy sharing with both our own family and visitors from New Zealand and all over the world. Having travelled extensively ourselves, we are pleased to be able to offer people a place to stay in our own country that we think is really something quite special. We love meeting people and are proud Kiwis – passionate about our beautiful part of the world and all that it has to offer.

After living in Auckland for over twenty years, where we raised our three sons, we escaped to Taupo seeking a more laid-back, outdoor lifestyle and a place where we could have friends and family come and stay. We found Te Moenga Lodge by chance and it was the peaceful location and the incredible views that really captivated us. At that time the lodge needed a great deal of rebuilding and restoration. We spent the first twelve months of our time here reconstructing and modernising the main house and have recently completed painting the exterior and renovating the bathrooms in each of the accommodation spaces.

Te Moenga Lodge as a wedding venue came about after a request from a friend who wanted to be married here and has since evolved into a very popular and unique place for couples to celebrate their special day. Our venue enables brides and grooms to design a wedding day in their own style with the stunning backdrop of the view of Lake Taupo thrown in! Demand for our venue is growing each year.

We’re proud of the results of the years of hard work and it really is a pleasure to welcome guests to our home and see them enjoy and appreciate it as much as we do. The feedback and comments we receive from people who spend time here really affirms for us that ours is a place worth sharing. 

We look forward to welcoming you to our special place soon, Cheryl and Phil London- your hosts.
