The Lodge at Kauri Cliffs
Set on 4,800 acres of rolling green hills and providing spectacular panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean and outlying islands, the dramatic landscape of this intimate property is a feast for the eyes. This is one of the world’s most exclusive lodges and one of New Zealand’s most famous retreats.
Guests stay in eight cottages nestled on the land but are encouraged to spend time at the impressive main lodge, where an elegant restaurant, beamed living room, card room, and fitness center are located. Cottages are perched on the edge of a forest and overlook the ocean, and each one has a private porch, bedroom, open fireplace, and sitting room. While at Kauri Cliffs, guests can enjoy boating, diving, deep-sea fishing, hunting, or tours to nearby attractions like Rainbow Falls and Ninety Mile Beach. The property also has a championship golf course with holes that overlook the Pacific Ocean and wind through marsh, forest, and farmland.
