Welcome to BEST WESTERN Sails!
Located in the main tourist area of the region, this Taupo hotel is midway between Auckland and Wellington, offering travellers a slice of the good life.
As an event town, there's always something happening nearby. Entertainment options are endless, whether you prefer to be close to the mountain for skiing or taking in a festival. A lakefront motel, the possibilities for summer recreation are many. Enjoy a day of fishing, a picnic along the shore or swimming in the refreshing waters. Book a tour to truly see the area and depend on the helpful staff at your Taupo hotel to take charge if and when you like.
Sky jumping is an adrenaline-packed adventure offered nearby. However, if you prefer to keep your feet on firm ground, golf is also popular and there are world class clubs and courses a short drive away. At Lake Taupo, take advantage of jet skiing or birding. Mother Nature is at her best in this part of New Zealand, attracting a number of photographers who achieve their once in a lifetime shots.
The Iron Man and Half Marathons take place here, with Cycle Challenge bringing in cyclists from around the world. It's easy to stay fit when there are so many opportunities. If you're here for a big event, this Taupo hotel offers blocked rooms at very competitive rates. Spacious guestrooms mean groups are welcome and comfortable. Close to the Taupo Township, guests are never far away from the center of it all but can relax in a rejuvenating region.
Hospitality is at its finest here, with staff members fully committed to making your stay the best it can be. As local ambassadors, each staff member knows the area well and is happy to recommend the best restaurants, recreation and shopping.
Reserve your next stay at BEST WESTERN Sails and enjoy the best of Taupo!

The rooms were clean, comfortable, quiet...but too warm and humid. I would never consider buying one of the apartments because of the total lack of air conditioning. I left the windows open the entire time I was there...it helped but did not
solve the problem.
The staff was wonderful.
