The Lodge at Kauri Cliffs
Set upon 6,000 acres near Matauri Bay in Northland, The Lodge at Kauri Cliffs combines incredible views of the Pacific Ocean with a championship golf course that’s any player’s dream.
With three private beaches, 22 suites and one cottage, a stay here calls for warm afternoon swims, barbecue picnic lunches and – of course – a good round of 18 holes. Looking out from the lodge, you’ll feel entirely in awe of the location.
Cape Brett and the offshore Cavalli Islands are all part of the panorama, and the views can be enjoyed from most points along the property.
Enjoy a meal in the dining room, read a book on the veranda or order a cocktail in the lounge – the sophisticated ease of The Lodge at Kauri Cliffs never ceases to follow suit.
THE LODGE AT KAURI CLIFFS LOCATION
Situated on the top of the North Island in New Zealand, The Lodge at Kauri Cliffs is best accessed via Auckland. Air New Zealand operates scheduled daily flights from here, and charter flights can also be arranged. The transfer from the airport to the lodge is a mere 25 minutes, and Kauri Cliffs staff can meet you upon arrival and request.
Should you choose to make the journey another way, you can do the drive yourself in just under four hours or take a helicopter for one hour. Winding along the roads or flying over the dramatic coastline, you’ll enjoy panoramic views of Cape Brett and the Cavalli Islands even before you arrive.
The Lodge at Kauri Cliffs has a total of 22 suites: 14 Deluxe Suites, 2 Deluxe Family Suites, 6 Suites and one Owner’s Cottage. Each overlooking both the golf course and the ocean, the suites have been outfitted with a private porch, comfortable bedroom with in-suite fireplace, walk-in wardrobe and spacious bathroom.
The par 72 championship golf course can be the focus of your stay, or you can partake in other on-property activities. If the challenging cliff-side holes don’t speak to you, perhaps tennis in one of the two Astroturf courts will, or swimming in the heated outdoor infinity pool. A spa rounds out the rest of your stay, catering to guests with four treatment rooms, a sauna, Jacuzzi and fitness center.
Suite Nestled into the hillside overlooking farmland, the golf course and ocean, the six Suites are thoughtfully-designed rooms with open fire places, east-facing balconies, king-size beds and elegant bathrooms with twin vanities. Linked by a pathway surrounded by luscious foliage, you’re just a short walk away from the main lodge and have all the privacy that you could wish for. These rooms are 601 square feet.
Deluxe Suite The beautifully-designed, open-plan Deluxe Suites are slightly larger at 750 square feet and are just a short distance away from the lodge, spa, tennis courts and pool. A luxurious seating area looks out to magnificent views of the Pacific Ocean, while an open fireplace, armoire with flat-screen television and sound system are contained in the suite. Just outside, a large private balcony overlooks the golf course and offshore Cavalli Islands.
Deluxe Family Suite The Deluxe Family Suites offer the same Deluxe Suite layout for the master bedroom, but with a second adjoining bedroom that is perfect for children or a nanny. A beautifully-appointed sitting area boasts a fireplace and private balcony, and both rooms have their own separate ensuite bathrooms.
Owner’s Cottage Expertly designed to comfortably accommodate four guests, the 4200 square-foot Owner’s Cottage has ample space to relax. An open lounge opens eastward to the private infinity pool, Jacuzzi and sun-drenched patio, while the master wing includes a Deluxe Suite bedroom with king-size bed, seating area with open fireplace, twin vanity bathroom and a patio. An adjoining study can be converted to sleep children or a nanny, and the guest wing has a second Deluxe Suite bedroom with the same well-appointed features. A kitchen, outdoor barbecue and cooking facilities are fully equipped for in-house dining, and one of the lodge’s chefs can come to cook for you if you wish.
