Relax in the magical Oreti Village

Oreti Village is located on the South Western shores of Lake Taupo and is the perfect place to escape, relax and recharge.

A property rich in history and boasting magnificent lake and mountain range views, Oreti is a hidden gem. Tranquil native bush and gardens laden with native birds, and home to 26 fully self-contained superior apartments and houses.

Part of the original Reverend Thomas Samuel Grace’s “Mission station” in the 1800’s Oreti, aptly meaning place of many catches, was once plentiful for trapping, and is now part of the success story of the Pukawa Wild life Management Trust, whose sole mission was to bring back the birds to Pukawa Bay.

Sit and enjoy your morning cuppa on the deck of your apartment and listen to the bird song, just one of the many attractions of the property.

Alex and his wife Cheryl started the Oreti property in the mid 80’s. Alex first arrived one winters day to view –hidden in thick fog with only a fantail to keep him company, he wondered what he was doing. He perched on a log and day dreamed, the 180 degree panoramic lake views slowly revealed itself and suffice to say still has him mesmerised today.

All cedar-clad apartments blend perfectly into the hillside and face north east, allowing a magical addition to your Oreti experience with the most beautiful sunrises. When you wake up at Oreti you know it won’t be an ordinary day!

Most apartments have drive-to-your-door access, and minimal or no stairs if needed – just let the team know when you book.

Be as active as you like, take a local walk, simply relax with a good book or sit on your deck and you, too, will be quickly mesmerised by the moods of the lake.

All apartments have full kitchens to allow self-catering. Perfect for a weekend away with family and friends, or an extended stay to recharge.

The atmospheric onsite restaurant, bar and function centre can cater for your dinner five nights a week with modern Kiwi cuisine and an iconic New Zealand and international wine selection.

Enjoy breakfast at your leisure with an in-room breakfast hamper by request.

The facility is available for family functions and special occasions. Oreti has hosted many fairy-tale weddings and precious memories for those that have used it for their own special events.

Oreti is the perfect place to reconnect with loved ones, celebrate and make cherished memories or simply relax and relish the magic of this stunning location.
