Hotel Overview


20 minutes’ drive from Abel Tasman, and about an hour from Nelson.

Rooms at The Resurgence

Choose from four queen-sized en suite rooms in the main lodge, three stand-alone Chalets or three Bush lodges, all with comfortable rustic-style furnishings and private balconies that overlook the National Park. The Chalets and Lodges are ideal for couples who want more privacy, or for those who wish to indulge in some self-catering. We particularly love the Kiwi Saddle Lodge for its separate bath house that looks out onto the Abel Tasman wilderness.

Food and facilities

Before dinner is served, evenings start with a wine hour at 7pm in the main lodge. A mixture of Clare’s French training and her love of New Zealand cuisine, Clare amends her menu according to guest’s preferences. Dine with other guests and the hosts, or in complete privacy with your loved one.

Activities at The Resurgence

Spend the day hiking along one of the National Park’s many nature trails, or take a trip to Golden Bay. There are also plenty of wineries nearby, and if you’re an art fan, the Nelson Art Studios make a fascinating day trip. After a day’s hiking, cool off in the outdoor pool or ask Clare to arrange a private massage to iron out those aches.
