My friend and I did the 'ready for the wild challenge'. It exceeded our expectations in every way. We had an absolute blast and will be buzzing from it for a very long time.
The staff at Poronui were exceptional. They were so warm & friendly - even fun. They did anything they could to make our time at Poronui a great one. The food was great, as was the wine. The lodge was very homley. The rooms were warm and the beds were comfy.
The countryside was stunning. It was such a treat to wake up in the morning and look out over the river and the hills from the comfort of my warm bed and the fire.
