About The Lodge at Kauri Cliffs

Relax in one of New Zealand’s most exclusive and luxurious lodges which enjoys outstanding coastal views. Kauri Cliffs, a Relais & Chateaux boutique property, is set on a 6,000 acre estate and provides a homely retreat in a stunning location.

The main lodge has lovely views over the golf course, a dining room, veranda, card room and cosy living room. Accommodation comprises 22 suites located in 11 lodges plus there’s the expansive Owner’s Cottage which is popular with families or groups of friends.

Of course, you’ll want to explore this beautiful region and there’s plenty of ways to do so; take a nature walk or explore on a Quad bike, take a surfing lesson, experience a helicopter ride on the Cape and Tane Mahuta Tour, learn more about the island’s history and culture on a heritage tour or take it easy with a barbecue on Pink Beach.

Golfers will appreciate the par 72 championship golf course which has dramatic views of the Pacific Ocean. The golf complex also includes a practice range, putting and chipping greens, golf shop and locker rooms.

Relaxation awaits at the luxury spa which is nestled on the edge of a Totara forest. Each of the four treatment rooms has floor to ceiling views and open out onto a private outdoor patio. The spa also has a sauna, Jacuzzi, spa pool, indoor heated lap pool and a fitness centre.
