Featured Terrific in Turangi is set right on the southern edge of Lake Taupo and is the perfect place to get away from it all. Choose from one of ten lakeside 1 bedroom apartments located in one of the most amazing spots on Lake Taupo. Complete with onsite restaurant, you will find plenty to do or if you prefer to do nothing at all, relax and read a book lakeside. It’s the perfect place to ride, ski or catch the big one, whether it’s on the lake, in the river, or down the mountain. Perfect for boat owners who can sail right up the front door (almost). Less than 5 minutes from thermal hot pools and close enough to the mountains to ski in Winter, this getaway is a slice of paradise. Packages can include learning to fly fish, spotting native birds on a guided walk around the Tongariro National park or relax on board a scenic cruise. Please enquire about these additions.

  • On arrival we jumped straight into the Spa, chilled out for a wee bit, had our Romantic 3 course dinner and then back into the Spa we went! Much needed body recovery. It sure did exceed expectations. We knew there was going to be a view but I really had no idea how amazing it was going to be. The spot was perfect, the cottage was perfect. It couldn’t have been more enjoyable. The contents of the box were useful for sure! The chocolates were a yummy treat after dinner. We used the bath salts in the bath on Sunday morning which was great with our sore bodies and we used the body oil for massages last night back at home. We LOVED it thank-you.  Tyrone & Maxine

  • We had such a wonderful time away, it was exactly what we were hoping it was going to be and more.  The service was amazing, so friendly but professional and just all round fantastic.  We thoroughly enjoyed our honeymoon and it was the little things that made it romantic, the spa, candles, meals being delivered to our room and flowers in every room.  Thank you for everything, it was truly fantastic.  Thomas and Hannah Connolly – Taranaki

  • Our time in Taihape was amazing.  I don’t think we have slept so well in so long.  We enjoyed the spa and the food was plentiful and amazing.  I can’t rave about it enough.  It was truly worth it.  Thank you.  The best thing I loved about it…..no cellphone reception!  Exactly what we needed!!!!!!!  Duncan & Leigh – Taupo

  • I chose to use Romantic Gestures because of the professionalism and experience they have in organizing special weekends away.  This proved to be a fantastic choice because everything went smoothly, the venue and hosts were great and Hannah and I now have wonderful memories of the weekend which we will cherish forever.  Andrew Gray – Hamilton

  • The stay was very lovely and relaxing.  Absolutely beautiful spot with breathtaking views.  The cabin was awesome.  Thank you so much for everything.  Zoe Sargent – Palmerston North

  • I had looked at doing something amazing for my husband two years ago but went with something else!  So googled within New Zealand for something romantic and something with activity and Romantic Gestures with some other sites popped up.  This wasn’t my first choice and I had picked something else, but a year later I came back to this site and my emails with Natasha and went with it this year!  Wow! Such an awesome site for us romantics!  Great family made us feel so welcome without intruding on us, the rafting was amazing thanks to Mikayla and lunch was so yummy, lovely 3 course meal, good home cooked food, accommodation top notch and every detail looked after!!  Everything was top notch!  Would highly recommend and will do!  Thanks Romantic Gestures!

  • We loved the one in Taihape.  Alisha – Wellington

  • Booked through Romantic Gestures.  What an awesome place to come and relax, dinner, wine and breakfast all prepared.  It was wonderful.  And my happy place was the spa, what a view straight down to the canyon.  Also a record player for a lovely Romantic dance in the evening.  All thanks to my darling Paul.  We had a wonderful time, thank you.  Huia & Paul van de Laar – Taupo
