We loved our stay in Fantail Lodge! The villa is very nice and clean, with a beautiful view on the garden. You've got a good privacy and everything you need to relax. The owner is a chef so food is excellent and the service is very nice and warm. Really, if we come back in Katikati, we'll definitly book a... More

Fantail Lodge Pros; New units with nice chattels. Tastefully decorated  Main building is beautiful with character and charm.   Cons; The Estate room makes you feel like you are in the back room of the main unit with no view or privacy. There are no net curtains on the windows which face the walkway and carport to both units. Curtains... More

The location of this venue was astounding, hidden away in the quiet town of Katikati. We were privileged to stay in the new villas completed mid last year. The villas nestled in the trees gave a superb, quiet atmosphere. The villas were very cosy, warm, spacious and private. We went for both dinner and breakfast at the restaurant and the... More

Just arrived home after an excellent two nights at Fantail Lodge where we were well looked after and fed. We stayed Friday and Saturday night in a villa, one of several new and very pleasant self contained units in the grounds of the lodge. Beds were very comfortable and the units themselves warm and clean. Two minutes walk to the... More

Nearly new villa style stand alone,high quality finishes with heaps of outdoor areas for the kids. Drive to town or eat at the resort which is excellent. You need a car. A quite stay.

Plant was covered in ants, rug hid thread bear stained carpet, beds very hard. Rolled up carpet outside an upper level room, had step over to leave room. Very expensive for... More

This function referred to was more than a month prior and was a very smooth and succefull celebration. This 'group' insisted on having all rooms next to eachother which only could be done in the old lodge rooms, also the cheapest option. Some of these rooms are in the proces of being renovated. Indeed there was a roll of outdoor... More

We spent two days at Fantail Lodge in one of the Villas for our first wedding anniversary. It was the perfect getaway, with beautiful surroundings and top quality customer service. The Villa was very comfortable, private and spacious. We were warmly welcomed and looked after throughout our stay. Unfortunately we did not go up to the restaurant in the main... More
