Taupo offers something for everyone who comes to this wonderful region. Ideally situated in the Central Plateau approximately 2500 feet above sea level our location is such that our guests can take advantage of staying in the one area and doing day trips to many of the other Tourist attractions of nearby regions. Executive Motel is a great base for both the tourist and those wanting an enjoyable retreat.
Destination Great Lake Taupo has at its doorstep " Lake Taupo" the largest lake in New Zealand. Here you can fish for Trout, swim, kayak, parasail, fly above us all in the Float Plane or simply enjoy a relaxed river cruise to see the wondrous Huka Falls or a fun and informative lake cruise out to see the renowned Mine Bay Maori carvings; towering 14 metres above the lake.
A short drive from the Town takes you to those incredible Huka Falls; the 11 metre high waterfall boasts a flow of 220,000 -yes thats right 220K litres of water over the falls every second - truly something worth seeing.
Thinking of Walking and Cycling - we have a wide range of cycling trails from relaxed ( e bike friendly) to the more adventurous trails for those who like a challenge. If walking is more your thing then a gentle stroll along the Lake front ( stopping for coffee, gelato, pizza or just to dabble your feet) is ideal, and then we offer the 2 hour loop track in the Tongariro National Park, or closer to home a climb up our own Mt Tauhara (1,088m) where you can rest and enjoy the beautiful panorama looking down over Taupo and central North Island
Golfing - Taupo caters for all levels of golfers, the casual 9 hole player or those who wish more of a challenge we offer Taupo Golf Club with 2 separate 18 hole courses plus of course the world renowned" The Kinloch Club" course and the Waiaraki Golf & Sanctuary designed by Jack Nicklaus - then to top it off of course there is always the "Hole in One" challenge right here on the Lake frontage
