On a extended holiday in New Zealand and Australia with my wife, brother, and sister-in-law, we stayed in six deluxe accommodations. This was the second best of them all, by common agreement. Claire and Peter could not have been better hosts, and the happy hour and dinner company was more than pleasant.

Peter and Clare have been the most wonderful hosts...appropriately solicitous without being intrusive...caring and concerned in a situation of minor crisis and generally wonderfully kind and considerate. In addition their Eco hotel is in a fantastic setting within the Abel Tasman National Park with all creature comforts provided and superb food and drink. We had not intended to stay here...

We've had two fabulous nights here despite the weather! Arrived in the rain before the storm and quick check in got us down to our Bush Chalet. Found a dry spot on our terrace to enjoy some local wine and craft beer. Booked our evening meal in the main house and enjoyed a four course meal with three other couples...

The Resurgence has really raised the bar for me. I've stayed at some wonderful places around NZ, but this is now my favourite. The seclusion and tranquility during the day, spending an afternoon drinking red wine in the bath while looking out at the bush, and then topped off with a lovely, social evening. We were there two days (not...

We spent 3 perfect days at the Resurgence Eco Lodge. The lodges are clean, with all the luxury and conform you need and perfectly equipped, the bed is fantastic.

From the moment we arrived, Claire and Peter made us feel at home! We stayed in the main house, in a large bedroom overlooking the pool.

Claire and Peter and their team have created a truly 5-star lodge in one of the most beautiful valleys near Abel Tasman. We stayed in one of the bush chalets, a one-room cabin on their property. The room was perfect in every way. We also had two wonderful four-course dinners cooked by Claire and served family-style - a great way...
