Travelers' Choice 2019 Winner
Certificate of Excellence
Come and enjoy Golden Bay's warm and friendly lifestyle...Perfectly situated at the entrance to Takaka Township, next door to the Golden Bay Visitor Centre, bus stop and supermarket. Ideal for the traveller arriving into Takaka by bus. The motel's ambience is one of restful colours, warmth and serenity, enjoying rural views and the ranges in the west from a sun-drenched patio. Mohua Motels makes an ideal base from which to explore all this wonderful region has to offer. You really need to spend at least a week or more in Golden Bay; time to visit the rugged beauty at its northern most tip and the numerous beaches that stretch from Farewell Spit to the golden sands of Totaranui at the gateway to the Abel Tasman National Park.
