5 Reasons Why Taupo is for Lovers

For an incredible romantic getaway, Taupo has you covered.

Looking to put a little extra spark in your relationship? With its collection of experiences, activities and accommodation, Taupo is the ideal destination to reignite your flame.  Here’s why:

Plan a pretty picnic
There is ample opportunity for a lover’s stroll in and around the Taupo CBD – from the Lake Terrace to Spa Thermal Park and more. This means plenty of chances to set up a relaxing spot for snuggles, snacks and selfies. Stop by the Merchant of Taupo or another of Taupo’s artisan foodie stops for gourmet nibbles and a couple bottles of the local microbrew.

Treat yourself
With a great selection of local spas, Taupo is rife with opportunity for pampering. Try a beauty treatment to get looking sharp for date night, or book a massage in the couple’s room at DeBretts Living Waters Spa and you can relax side-by-side.

Woo’d over wine
Nothing heightens the senses like a fine wine tasting. There are several wine-tasting and vineyard touring opportunities in the Taupo area, but for a full sensory experience, The Floating Rock Winery and Café (Kuratau River Wines) takes the cake.  They also have a delightful little café and double as a wedding venue if you’re so inclined…

Beating hearts
More commonly associated with adrenalin junkies, don’t discount the benefits of extreme sport on your love life.  There’s nothing like staring death in the face to make you appreciate the one you’re with!  Take advantage of Taupo’s famous bungee over the Waikato River or jump out of plane with SkyDive Taupo; you’ll hold each other a little closer at night.

Set the mood
At the end of the day, retreat back to your Taupo luxury lakefront accommodation to unwind with a view. The Cove Taupo is perfectly placed for this, and their Premium Spa Suites offer incredible uninterrupted views overlooking Lake Taupo and Acacia Bay.  Enjoy a spacious one-bedroom apartment with a Super King bed, plus your very own thermally heated spa pool located on your private balcony.
