I loved every minute of my stay here! The property is breathtakingly gorgeous with plenty to see and more grounds to roam than you would ever expect. The perfectly manicured lawn, the personalized welcome sign, and the hosts Ralph and Letizia are what begin your experience here (and it is an experience rather than a stay). All the rooms are well decorated, luxurious, and very spacious, which would be enough to make this an excellent listing, but it is the grounds, the food, and the hosts that make it an experience. The paths through the nikau forest took me by complete surprise, as it seemed to go on forever. Do not pass up the opportunity to use the spa in the midst of this amazing scenery. I did, and I truly regret it (especially after listening to another in our party who made the time). The food was delicious - every single course. My "best for last" are Letizia and Ralph. They are a fun and clever couple that made my stay seem like I was visiting old friends rather than a lodge. I laughed my way through my meals and left knowing I wanted to return as soon as the opportunity presents itself again. It will be certainly be one of my high points in my travels through New Zealand!
