One of the most beautiful, lush, green, environmentally conscious, pampering, homey, spots I have ever stayed at. (besides Cape Kidnappers) What a wonderful experience at the Lodge, grounds, golf course, restaurant.

I had read all the reviews - but no words can describe this place, the amazing views, the beautiful room, the tranquility but most importantly the most attentive staff which make every penny spent worthwhile.

However far away it is, it is worth the effort. Amazing place, amazing setting, great bedroom, great bathroom, great staff, this is a Relais & Chateaux you need to experience. The Bay of Islands is one of the most beautiful places, and The Lodge at Kauri Cliffs matches it perfectly.

The best service I have ever experienced and I have travelled extensively for work and leisure. A level above others. From the moment we were greeted til we departed we were part of the family and made to feel special. Nothing was too much of a problem and we were sad to leave but we will be back.

Make sure you play and stay at Kauri Cliffs, it is all of the highest standard. We traveled from Auckland by car staying at Mangawhai on the way North. The second hole from the back tee at Mangawhai G.C. is a great par 4 and will test the best.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
In the far north of New Zealand lies an unspoiled peninsula. High cliffs and a few ranches on this welcoming island which won the hearts of Julian and Josie Robertson. After designing a magnificent 18-hole golf course, the couple created a splendid colonial residence with outlying cottages. Space is the real luxury, the suite an apartment, the bathroom a spa. The epitome of refinement in a distant corner of the world. ... more   less
