Luxury hotel holiday Poronui Ranch Lake Taupo

Poronui Ranch in the Taharua Valley is a secluded haven, recommended for the rustic luxury of its rooms and the beautiful wilderness of the estate. Spend days hiking, horse-riding and cycling or perhaps try you hand at angling, for which the estate is renowned. Return to the cosy luxury of the cabins and enjoy their elegant and traditional style. The fresh local produce served at the restaurant is also a highlight. A good choice for a rural retreat as part of our touring holidays of New Zealand.
