Four days was not long enough. The lodge and room were extremely comfortable however nothing was better than sitting on our balcony watching dusk fall over the vineyard. Watching the kingfishers and the kookaburra returning home for the night and waiting until the light faded on the sea in the distance and first stars of the evening came out.
All this while drinking some very good wine made from the vines you are looking at.There’s something special about doing that.
Takatu Lodge is discrete, refined and understated and with just 4 rooms more a country house than a hotel. We keep wishing we were back there.
