Kauri Cliffs, North Island

(4.8/5 based on 20+ reviews on the web)
Kauri Cliffs is located in the Bay of Islands region of Northland, NZ. Set on over 6,500 acres near Matauri Bay, The Lodge at Kauri Cliffs features spectacular 180-degree views of the Pacific Ocean and overlooks the championship golf course. The beautiful lodge is built in the grand colonial style, with a range of gorgeous and spacious living and dining rooms, many opening on to covered verandahs providing options for alfresco dining next to outdoor fireplaces and taking in the mesmerizing views.

Just eleven outlying guest cottages, each with two guest suites, provide the spacious accommodation at this Relais & Chateaux hideaway, nestled on the edge of native forest overlooking the ocean and golf course. The 2 bedroom Owner’s Cottage is another step above, and it recently graced the cover of American design bible, Architectural Digest (December 2008). The world-class championship golf course with many holes overlooking the Pacific Ocean is highly acclaimed, and in 2009 Golf Digest named it #1 International in its World’s 50 Best Golf Hotels.

Non-golfers, do not despair, Kauri Cliffs is home to a fabulous spa beautifully nestled amidst a totara forest with indoor/outdoor treatment rooms featuring outdoor fireplaces and was recently named in Tatler Magazine’s 101 Best Spas. Other popular activities are beautiful walks to the giant Kauri Tree, relaxing at Pink Beach, exploring the Cavalli Islands and much more.

  • This place is absolutely stunning and no surprise to be in top 100 golf courses in the world. The views are mine blowing and the course is pristine. From the moment you are welcomed at the gate you feel very special and are treated like you're the only people playing three that day. A stunning experience.
