Sharing one of our latest guest reviews with you 😊

The Flying Trout Boutique Lodge - An amazing place to stay in Taupo.

The most relaxing, peaceful place to stay, the attention to details was exceptional. The most comfy bed and room with all the items you would ever need (air con, tv with sky and Netflix, fridge). A spa outside your room with seating area with views of Lake Taupo. An amazing breakfast spread which will keep you full until the evening and there is something for everyone’s taste.
Oh and a full sized billiards table and chocolates and wine on arrival.
An amazing hosts, so kind and full of helpful local information.
We will be back to stay again!

Come and chill out!

The lake was so calm last night after a shower of rain - beautiful cloud formations too. These photos were taken from the terrace 🌦


Did I get an almighty surprise a few days ago. We feed the birds everyday in the courtyard but this day to my surprise I stumbled across at least 30 quail - parents and babies - milling round eating the last of the bird seed. I had to snap quickly as they don't enjoy being disturbed by us humans and so I only captured those I could - you can see they are already starting to adios out of there. They were back this morning too but refused to hang around for a photo shoot 😄.


I was lucky enough to be sitting in our garden courtyard recently with phone in hand when a Tui flew in for a quick dip and sup at the bird bath on one of our hot, hot days. Not the most perfect video I know but just happy to be able to capture this beautiful creature. I hope you enjoy watching as much as I did ☀️.


Happy New Year everyone.! We are very lucky to meet so many amazing guests. Please see our latest guest review.

"Rob and Karen were the most amazing hosts. We hired the Kiwi Suite, had the most amazing views, with a spa pool just outside our door. It was fabulous. The room was just beautiful and the bed was super comfortable. We indulged in breakfast every morning, which was big and kept us going all day, no lunch was needed. Breakfast was cooked and also came with fresh muesli, fruit and yoghurt, a real treat. Karen and Rob had excellent local knowledge which we used to plan our daily adventures around Taupo. We really loved our accommodation and were looked after so well. Highly recommend the flying trout as a place to stay, it had everything we wanted. Privacy, comfort a beautiful quite place to put your feet up and relax."


We wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and a wonderful New Year. 🎄

The weather yesterday in Taupo was beautiful for a stroll along the lake shore. Isn't nature wonderful, the trees just look glorious. I took these photos along Two Mile Bay foreshore less than a 15 min drive from the Lodge, and in some of the photos you can see Acacia Bay standing out in the background right across the lake.
