My 12 year old son now has memory that he will carry with him for the rest of his life . We had an outstanding time with exceptionally warm friendly staff and an outstanding guide. Our guide Chris was brilliant, but also it was not too easy so my son learnt a lot from him. The safety aspect was well... More

I visited Poronui over Easter with my 13 year old son to hunt under instruction of one of the guides. Everything about the place works well; Eve runs a good show - but that is also evident in the fact that all the staff work very well. The food is superb and the cabins are very comfortable. Dinner in the... More

My husband had been to Poronui previously with my eldest son and they really wanted to share their magical experiences with the rest of the family. It certainly didn't disappoint. From the very first communication with Eve (to call her the Manager completely understates her amazing all encompassing role at Poronui) to reluctantly bidding them all farewell, our family had...

If you're a fly-fisherman (or woman), Poronui is paradise. It's pretty close to a paradise even if you're not a fisherman. Accommodations are as good or better than any other similar lodge I've stayed in. The food is outstanding. Service is about as good as it gets anywhere. Eve and her staff go out of their way continuously to ensure... More

This has been our third year in a row of experiencing Poronui's hospitality. Eve and her staff are always welcoming and makes your stay, exceptional. The accommodation is first class and the food always fresh and "local" (Venison, honey). They have experienced Guides to help you hunt, fish and horse ride. For those who want to relax, a massage is... More

It is really difficult to describe a place as unique as the Poronui Lodge. Our visits (two so far) to the lodge certainly rank very high in our “best holiday” list. And there are many reasons: accommodation is lovely, just the way you would expect it for a high class fishing and hunting lodge. The dining and lounge areas are... More

This November will be our 3rd trip to Poronui, our favorite New Zealand fishing lodge. Eve, her staff and the guides sole goal is to insure that you have an outstanding experience at the lodge and streams that’s truly memorable in every aspect. This is a quality fishing lodge with excellent food, accommodations, and ambience without being pretentious. Informality is... More

My wife and I have now been coming to Poronui for the past four years. It truly is the gold standard by which all lodges in NZ should be judged. We have stayed at many different lodges and nobody works harder to ensure your expectations are met by customizing the needs of your outing. All this is done without the... More
