Awaroa Lodge is a delightful little peaceful oasis and a perfect base for trekking Abel Tasman in comfort. I couldn't fault it - the rooms were spacious clean and modern with lovely balconies overlooking the bush. Service was exceptional - very friendly and helpful. Food was delicious - though maybe a tiny bit overpriced. Though considering the remoteness and the efforts they make to ensure minimal visual and environmental impact to the area this is understansable. The main building had a number of great little spots both inside and out to relax over a glass of wine of beer. Getting there is easy - aboard one of the many daily ferries. And it is easy to do different parts of the track and get ferried back to the Lodge at the end of each day. Highly recommended! (And in regards dying insects on teh floor in the restaurant - yes there were a few - but you're in the middle of the bush and insects fly about and into the building. I don't think this is at all a reflection of the cleanliness of the Lodge).
