Bali Hai was the perfect place to start our two week trip of New Zealand Nth Island.
Very modern, clean and well maintained. Barbara was so helpful and it is a credit to her as she does it all on her own, she could not have been more helpful....nothing was too much trouble.
We found it the perfect place to stay as it was close to everything and only a short walk or drive to main shops etc.....we loved every bit of our stay and the cars travelling past were only a few and not a problem at all considering it was peak time too straight after xmas. The hotel is set well off the road so traffic noise was not an issue and where we live in Melbourne is a very quiet street so if traffic was going to be an issue it certainly wasnt for us. I can honestly say that after travelling from Auckland to Bay Of Islands, Taupo, Rotorua, Napier and Wellington that staying at BALI HAI PAIHIA BAY OF ISLANDS....was the best stay out of all and the one we miss the most now back at home.
Thank you Barbara....we will never forget your hospitality and the lovely room we had. Very private and perfect start to our trip. The kids aged 10 and 15 loved it and the fact there was no pool did not bother them as there were so many lovely beached areas to swim and they actually commented on how nice it was staying there and how quiet it was. The garden out the back was lovely and it was all set out lovely and considering there were others staying there it was so peaceful and the perfect relaxation that we needed considering we run our own business back home and life is busy. If we are ever in Nth Island again we will certainly be staying with you and will highly recommend you to anyone we know that is travelling to NZ.
Two bedroom was perfect for us with our two kids aged 10 and 15, we each had a tv in our rooms as we...

Thank you, for such a lovely and detailed review. It is truly appreciated. It is a difficult call when guests leave, telling us how happy they have been, and we have to mention would you mind posting a review on Trip Advisor...this is the trend at the moment. We are impacted by all reviews, good and bad. Thankfully, the bad ones are rare, and that is something we continue to strive towards. I do not want unhappy people staying, it is not fair on me or them. People have to make choices based on an array of information and it is important to get it right. I am glad that for you choosing the Bali Hai was just right for you all:)
