The villas are built with a lot of recycled materials, & so much thought they look great & space wise are very well designed with plenty of windows to capture the view of the ocean & sunsets with the beach just a stroll away!

We stayed at the Ahu Ahu Oraukawa Lodge from the 6th - 8th March and were not disappointed. The location is absolutely stunning with panoramic views of the ocean. Nuala was a very welcoming and attentive host. She made sure we had everything we needed and ensured everything was in order for a fantastic stay. The Lodge is luxurious with... More

Thanks to David and Nuala who were very welcoming and attentive hosts. The cottages have lots of character with interesting architectural details. Ours was well appointed and had everything we needed. Gorgeous views. Very cozy and clean. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend Ahu Ahu Villas to other travelers

We stayed at the Ahu Ahu Beach Villas during the WOMAD Festival of 2015 and enjoyed every moment of it. So much so that we made a special trip back from New Plymouth (where the festival was held) every afternoon to spend a few hours relaxing and soaking up the beauty of the surroundings and the vistas of the sea....

Recently stayed at the studio villa and couldn't have asked for better accommodation. Included with our stay were beautiful, sweeping vistas of the sea from a perch a couple hundred feet above the beach, a spacious French-inspired villa with its own table, wooden slat-style windows that open on all sides of the villa to let the breeze and views in,...

We recently had the pleasure of staying at this beautiful lodge for 3 days. Every attention to detail was perfect. The views are outstanding and the owners go out of their way to welcome guests. Would highly recomend a visit to the gardens and zoo in New Plymouth. Thanks for creating and sharing such a beautiful place.

I recently facilitated a workshop on behalf of a local company at Ahu Ahu and it was fabulous. Catering was wonderful and service couldn't be faulted. Not only were all the facilities there you would imagine but the location is superb. Great views, peaceful and inspiring, perfect as an informal, relaxed workshop venue.

I had a really amazing stay here. It was honestly one of the best experiences of New Zealand hospitality I've ever had and I am from this country. I've already recommended it to anyone who would listen. Not only was the hospitality amazing, the villas themselves were incredibly designed and the vistas were to put it simply: breathtaking. The sound... More

My wife and I stayed 3 nights at the Ahu Ahu Beach Villas. The villas were situated on a cliff overlooking the ocean with views across the beach to New Plymouth. Stunning location and not too far from activities like Mount Taranaki and New Plymouth. The villas were very clean and set up for all you need. Hosts David and... More
