To wake in the morning and go onto the verandah and watch the fledged Californian Quail foraging in the early morning sun whilst... More

The Resurgence provides for a wonderful escape. We stayed at the Resurgence for our honeymoon, Peter and Clare provided a very romantic environment. The Bungaloos are extremely clean and have been constructed with every idea thought out. It felt like home for the time we stayed. Popular restaurants and beaches are just a short drive away. We were left with... More

Peter and Clare advertise The Resurgence as '5 Star Nature' and it truly is: Stunning location - hidden delightfully in the bush. In fact here you don't even mind being woken early by the Tui and Bell Birds. Great accomodation - clean, luxurious finishes and still retaining a connection with local history. Even better hospitality - Peter and Clare have... More

Do go to Takaka and see Waikoropupu Springs,they are amazing and so beautiful and do as much of the Able Tasman coastal walk as you can. For us this was probably our favorite area of the whole trip which included Austrailia and much of New Zealand.

The venue was gorgeous as the lodge is tucked into the very mature bush so you are removed from all distractions. The lodge is very conveniently located near Abel Tasman National Park and its environs. Peter and Clare are first rate hosts!

Peter & Clare provided us with ideas of what to see and do based on our likes. They also made all our arrangements both while we stayed with them as well as called ahead to other places they thought we would enjoy. Each evening there was a cocktail hour where we could meet the other guest. This was followed by... More

Of all the placeswe stayed in new Zealnd I was the most concerned about staying at the Resurgence since I knew it was a rural setting and after two days I was so upset that we had to leave. This was luxury in an amazingly peaceful setting. We arrived on a Friday when Peter and Claire had taken a well... More

Stunningly beautiful location and superb accommodation. Stayed in a bush chalet for 3 nights which was fantastic. This place costs a little more than your average accommodation but then its an exceptional place and is worth every penny. Peter and Claire were great hosts, extremely friendly, helpful and dedicated to thier conservation work as well as the The Resurgence. Ate... More
