About This Hotel
New Zealand's Lodge at Kauri Cliffs boasts an exceptionally wide range of on-site activities, but in a place as tranquil as this, you might want to skip them altogether.
The Lodge at Kauri Cliffs presents guests with an enviable dilemma: to relax, or not to relax?
On one hand, the view is remarkable - all jutting green islands and sparkling ocean as far as the neck can swivel. The accommodations, too, are on the side of repose, with open fireplaces, king-size beds, and private porches in each of the lodge's 22 suites. And of course there is the spa, where guests can enjoy al fresco treatments overlooking a gurgling stream surrounded by lush ferns.
Impressive, but so is the array of activities available here in northern New Zealand. Game fishing, scuba diving, snorkeling, and sailing are all options. So is hunting for boar and pheasant. The main attraction, however, is the Kauri Cliffs championship golf course, which overlooks the Pacific Ocean and spans entire ecosystems, from marsh, to forest, to farmland.
So, to relax or not to relax? Probably best to do both.
