When a property charges double that what the world's most highly regarded and luxurious resort chain (amanresorts) charges for most of its properties, things better be out of this world. Kauri Cliffs is excellent - staff were friendly, the room was nice, food was good and the location is very beautiful. We also really enjoyed the spa. Is it worth... More

We had the good fortune to stay at the Lodge at Kauri Cliffs from September 17-20, 2014...after staying at its sister property, The Farm at Cape Kidnappers three days earlier. These two resorts have much in common with the high level of service, attention to detail and exquisite dining options they offer. They both rank at the top of all... More

Second time to Kauri the Julian Robertson masterpiece. The scenery is stunning, unspoilt and remote. The golf course is up there with the best. I have played there twice and both times we were the only party on the course. Accommodation and food are all first class and the entire site has a very special feel to it, eco sensitive,... More

Thanks to the fundraising generosity of friends, family and colleagues, my darling husband and I enjoyed the most memorable weekend at Kauri Cliffs in late August 2013. At the time, my husband was under the darkest cloud of a terminal cancer diagnosis, with his doctors giving him only weeks to live after discharging him in late July. We informed the... More

We came back to Kauri Cliffs to celebrate our 16th wedding anniversary and, as usual, it was magical! On arrival to our beautiful suite, there was an anniversary gift from the Lodge, which was so lovely. The many spa treatments were divine and we were fed the most amazing food!

We stayed at Kauri Cliffs in February 2014 and the lodge is very luxurious, it is beautifully appointed and boasts one of the best golf courses we've ever played. The pro shop staff were wonderful and very helpful. We enjoyed the special Maori performance before dinner and the Valentine's Day dinner on pink beach was a highlight. The overall service... More
