Dinners are delicious and we loved meeting and chatting with the other guests at the end of each day. Claire and Peter are amazing hosts, nothing was too much trouble. Interesting activities were sorted...

Unforgettable experience being here for Christmas 2016 as part of our honeymoon adventure around New Zealand. Peter and Claire were the best hosts and made our stay even more memorable. The day we arrived it was a monsoon, and we were met from the car with brollies. Our little bush chalet was a dream, incredible comfy and so well equipped....

My 2 days at The Resurgence lacked sunshine but the location is still spectacular when rainy and covered with clouds. My lodge was very comfortable and it was wonderful to take a morning bath or shower in outdoor bathhouse ! Meals were excellent and hosts were excellent

When we first arrived, we thought this was far away from everything but ended wishing we had a day or two more! We were greeted by Claire, the host and quickly checked into our secluded lodge. It was such an amazing change from staying in hotels. Claire and Peter go above and beyond to ensure they meet all the needs...

Claire and Peter were great hosts, welcoming their guests at 7pm with wine and delicious canapés, followed by a delicious and imaginative dinner. Despite some rain we had some interesting walks in the nearby Abel Tasman park and really enjoyed our stay - good company, comfortable and well equipped rooms in a secluded and peaceful location...

We stayed here for three night as our first stop on South Island . The accommodation was excellent . It was very well equipped so we prepared all the meals we needed.
