  • Visited Huka Honey Hive today and had an awesome time, such a interesting place. The staff were lovely and very helpful. We bought a selection of different products and feel they were great value for money. Most definitely a place we shall be visiting again and will also try out their online shopping. Thank you so much Huka Honey Hive.
  • Excellent place for shopping honey and it's products. Very large selection of cosmetic products including skin care, sun block, facial care, and body lotion. Nice selection of spirit and wine which is based on honey. Brilliant sets of honey sweets. End your visit with assorted tastes of ice cream. Love this place with its outstanding presentation. Kids and family would love visiting this place and see real life bees hives.
  • A good place for shopping honey and its goods. The staffs are friendly and helpful. We can taste the different honey for free. It's also a good place to understand how the bees collect the honey.
  • GREAT place to buy honey! They have a free tasting of almost every honey they sell (got a good range of selections as well). They also have a small education corner about honey (there is a live honeycomb with real bees that you can see through). Got kids corner as well. And the best is you have to taste their honey ice cream! Superb! The staffs are also informative and friendly.
  • Nice place to stop over on the way to huka falls to learn more about bees and honey. They offered free tasters of all their honey at the back which is really nice. The honey ice cream is tasty so worth a try. And they sell all sorts of honey products including drinks and hand creams. There's also a window into where all the bees are which is cool yet a little bit icky. Also, if you're coming here - check out rock and ropes next door, it is awesome fun for all ages!
