We paid $476 a night, well more than we would have paid for Westin in Fiji or similar. We were so disappointed. The location really is primo, but the rest; cabinetry in bathroom stained and damaged, hair on the walls, pillows are awful. One of the small pools was empty and surrounded by traffic cones. Apparently they couldn't fill it because of the drought. Yes there is a drought and so that's fair enough, but put a board over it! looking at dirty old traffic cones ruins the whole outlook. I discovered there's not duvet cover on the duvet. They double sheet the beds and put a duvet in the middle. And it was stained. I certainly don't stay in one place when I sleep so the thought of a non covered duvet on me is gross. I asked the house keeping staff but they said "no, we don't have any and yes, it's a bit weird". I also walked past rooms where the duvet was on the floor while they were making the beds. We ditched the duvet and thankfully it was warm so we only needed the sheets. We thought we'd stay by the pool and have nibbles or lunch at the house restaurant. Nope. Not open. We were offered free breakfast. 4 items on the menu. So we said no thanks and walked down to the village where there are some nice options. And yes, you can walk to the village easily. The location of this place is great. We did get a small per night refund with no arguments which was good.

Dear Guest, Firstly, I would like to thank you for your online review about your stay. I do see some concerns and i will certainly address them. During last two months , we have hosted over two thousand guests staying with us. Most of these guests have enjoyed and appreciated the world class experience at the resort. During a severe drought phase in the lives of a twenty five plus team are still working diligently around the clock to deliver a quality hospitality experience. This is also true for every Tourism operator in our region & this displays our resilience . I have a received brief note about your expectation gap as a traveller coming from Fiji islands. Having worked very closely with some of the luxury properties located in Fiji myself, We admire them & understand that there are some lovely properties. However, if a traveller compare and critiques an individual property with another across the globe, inevitably, there will be product proposition & its perceived value gaps. Your submission of very dismissing comments at the check in regarding dried gardens & our inability to use hoses to wash off the building despite your knowledge of the severe drought conditions that prevail in the Northland region is very disappointing. Our rooms, facilities,qualified staff, & our resort function are in line with high hospitality standards. We will accept your feedback & improve our response to critical process improvements in the future.

Stayed two nights, I found the place to be dark and dingy, no air conditioning. I am sure must be better places to stay in Paihia that are better and closer to the town. I would not rebook this place.

This review is written bearing in mind that the cost of this hotel is high and it is promoted as luxury boutique. On the positive side the room we were allocated was a good size on the third floor with a large balcony overlooking the pool (and busy road!). On the downside we were woken at 8 on the first morning by the cleaning staff chatting outside our room (301) and collecting cleaning equipment from a cupboard next door. The jacuzzi was fenced off and empty and the featured heated pools were not operating due to a water shortage. I understand why this was needed but there was no notification in advance and no reduction in cost as a result. When we used the main pool the large parasols were not in use and there was no one on hand to put them up. We ate on two nights in the restaurant and on the first the food was excellent and the service adequate. On the second there were only four customers including us. The waiting staff were inattentive spending time in the kitchen chatting - they also had a pc linked in playing loud music which I had to ask twice to be turned down. I suspect that the chef was also distracted because the food this time was overcooked! Overall a disappointing stay bearing in mind the price - would not stay here again.

We had a comfortable room with a balcony but the bathroom was a little dated. The staff were friendly & the breakfast was good. A good place to stay whilst exploring the area. There was ample parking overnight.

We had a beautiful room with small kitchen area, huge balcony and fantastic views of the ocean! Great breakfast service although only a reasonable selection. All staff were friendly and helpful. Parking underground was limited but plenty of roadside spaces available. Very good location for visiting Waitanga, Cape Reinga and taking a cruise around the bay!
