Rooms at The Lodge at Kauri Cliffs

11 outlying cottages sit nestled among native beachfront forest, with views over the golf course and ocean. From your private porch you’ll spot Cape Brett and the offshore Cavalli Islands, while inside the cottage you’ll enjoy light interiors, floor-to-ceiling windows, walk-in wardrobes and open fireplaces for the chillier evenings.

Food and facilities

Dinner is a formal affair, where the menu changes daily for a nightly gourmet feast. Choose between a la carte or a five-course meal, and sample delicious local produce, including seafood and NZ lamb. Later, utilise the lodge’s superb spa facilities, where private treatment rooms open out onto private courtyards, set against a verdant fern garden and native forest.

Alternatively take a scenic coast hike or cycle ride along the cliff-top, or practice your racket skills at the lodge’s Astroturf tennis courts. Not forgetting, of course, going for a round of golf at the world-renowned course on your doorstep.
