“Absolutely outstanding. A first-class knockout.”
Reviewed 30 September 2004

I have stayed at several of New Zealand's 'superlodges,' and Kauri Cliffs is by far the most spectacular. I visited with my partner, who was equally as spellbound by the standard of rooms, service, food and golf course. This is truly a special place that easily superpasses many other lodges on the North Island. Worth every single dollar. We can't wait to return.

The Lodge at Kauri Cliffs is one of the most spectacular places we have ever stayed. The location is undescribably beautiful - overlooking the Pacific Ocean. It is miles from the nearest town and you feel as though you are on your own little island. The service was the best I have ever experienced. Every single person who worked at the Lodge remembered our names. My husband mentioned in passing that he might hit some golf balls. When we went down to the Golf shop a good hour or so later, the pro had a cart and water waiting for us. Our every need was anticipated. I went for a walk in the morning and was given a bottle of water and chocolate bar. The suites are huge and it is beautifully decorated. We will definitely be back.

We had the most wonderful time at the Lodge at Kauri Cliffs. The most wonderful golf course I have played. The staff was the friendliest and most thoughtful I have had the pleasure meeting. Flawless!

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
In the far north of New Zealand lies an unspoiled peninsula. High cliffs and a few ranches on this welcoming island which won the hearts of Julian and Josie Robertson. After designing a magnificent 18-hole golf course, the couple created a splendid colonial residence with outlying cottages. Space is the real luxury, the suite an apartment, the bathroom a spa. The epitome of refinement in a distant corner of the world. ... more   less
