This award-winning luxury lodge combines boutique ambience with retreat-style tranquility. Two hours' drive from Auckland, the secluded property is set amidst 25 acres of native bush on the slopes of Mount Pauanui, shaded by tall trees and towering ferns. Elegant chalet accommodations survey the idyllic natural landscape, and the stargazing from your private furnished deck in the treetops is unsurpassed. Deluxe chalets feature rustic wood ceilings and natural touches, a king-size bed (which can be converted to two twins), and a lavish bathroom with sleek modern design features. Soak in the deep porcelain tub or enjoy an indulgent shower with Amiki Botanicals toiletries. Though you may prefer to unplug and listen to the melodious birdsong outside, a 42" LED television is provided. And you can make your own coffee or tea in your room. Head to the spa for a swim in the heated outdoor pool or enjoy the sauna. Dining at the acclaimed Miha's restaurant is a special event, where al fresco meals on the large outdoor deck have the Pacific Ocean as a backdrop. Miha’s menu reflects Pacific Rim flavors with a modern European twist, with menus changing seasonally. The head chef brings a wealth of international culinary experience, innovation and flair and uses the freshest and highest-quality produce.
