We arrived after stopping in Motueka at the Smoking Barrel for dinner which was delish. The Kimiora staff had left the key exactly where they said they would, upgraded our room, turned on the lights and heating so we walked into a cozy lovely room...More

Thank you for taking the time to write your review. We are glad that you had an enjoyable stay and hope to see you again in the future.
We booked this last minute and were very pleased with everything. The rooms lovely and views good. A small kitchenette and big bathroom. Floors a little creaky and could hear the neighbours walking around too. Complimentary brekky was simple but tasty (fruit, yoghurt, cereals, pastries,...More

There are bus/shuttle services that go from Nelson to Kaiteriteri. I didn't use it as we had a car when staying there, but they are daily and most likely more than 1 a day from various companies. Once you've booked your accommodation, I would suggest you contact the resort directly and ask them to either advise you which company to use, best way to get to them or they may even be able to organise a transfer for you from Nelson. They were very helpful and lovely to deal with when we stayed there.
Its a short walk from the main beach up to the resort although not the easiest with luggage.
A beautiful part of the country and you can get water taxis from the main beach up into the National Park for day trips if required. So you can see a lot without needing to have a car (as long as you are able to walk short distances).
I can recommend sea kayaking in the area and an overnight stay at the Awaroa Lodge near the top of the park if you want to spend a bit of time walking some of the tracks. There are plenty of day trip options too where you can visit some lovely beaches, and seal colonies and do some walks.

Hi. Kimi Ora Resort is about an hour from Nelson I am unsure of the buses that go to Kaiteriteri as we have never had to use them. The other alternative is to hire a car for a couple of day's. That will give you the freedom to look around a bit & you will want to as it's a beautiful part of the country.
