From the moment you arrive, you are truly on Holiday.

Forget the day-to-day, as soon as you arrive at Lake Taupo Holiday Resort you'll be in holiday mode.

Take a dip or relax beside our thermally heated lagoon pool where the kids can splash in the warm water for hours; it's warmer than the water in Fiji year round!

Throw in the apron, take a break from cooking and simply float to the swim-up cafe and bar for a delicious bite to eat or a cheeky cocktail. With our giant poolside screen, you can even catch a movie from the luxury of our thermally heated water.

With a full adventure playground, kids FUNZONE and a whole raft of other onsite activities, everything you and your family need for a fun-filled and memorable holiday is right here.

We have a range of accommodation for families, couples or adventurers as well as large tent and caravan sites.

Lusty's Lagoon

New Zealand's First Thermally Heated Lagoon Style Pool With Swim Up Bar & Cafe!

Named after Lloyd and Trish Lusty, who have owned and run Lake Taupo Holiday Resort as a family for 21 years, Lusty’s Lagoon is the tropical heart and soul of Lake Taupo Holiday Resort. Lounging at the swim-up bar with a cocktail in water that’s thermally heated up to 35°C year-round (which is 93°f) you could easily be forgiven for thinking you were in the tropics.

Lusty’s lagoon will be a hit with the kids, who can safely swim and splash away hours in the warm water. There’s even a swim-in grotto cave to explore and a giant poolside movie screen for enjoying family movies.
