ABC's Hit Romance Reality Series The Bachelor
The episode, which features Bachelor Juan Pablo and the final eight girls in the competition, is expected to air to millions of viewers through the major US network ABC, and reflects a successful collaboration between Tourism New Zealand, Huka Lodge and a range of local operators wanting to jointly promote the region.

Set amongst 17 acres of park-like grounds on the banks of the Waikato River, Huka Lodge has a global reputation for providing outstanding service to guests in its 25 luxurious suites, offering a truly romantic place for couples and honeymooners.

Huka Lodge offers a haven of privacy and romance for the world's A-list on many an occasion and is also chosen by those seeking a memorable place for one of life's defining moments – the wedding proposal. This exclusive and elegant property has also been selected as the venue for many stunning and spectacular wedding events.

The Huka Lodge guest experience has been refined over the past 90 years to deliver extraordinary hospitality, complemented by unique and truly authentic outdoor activities. The romantic Time Together and Honeymoon packages are amongst the offering of special experiences created by Huka Lodge to showcase the amazing beauty and recreational resources of the surrounding area – which includes one of New Zealand's magnificent World Heritage parks.

After a day of exploring, guests meet for pre-dinner drinks followed by nightly five-course degustation menus, featuring the finest local produce and New Zealand wines prepared by the Lodge's own talented chef. It's a chance to mix with other guests, many who travel from around the world regularly to return this magical place. For couples that want the intimacy of dining alone, there are over 20 romantic indoor and outdoor locations available, all guaranteed to create a memorable evening.
