“Nice coffee, friendly staff, great views”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 May 2014 via mobile

Called in for a coffee, this is the only place for coffee in Te Kaha at this time of year, the coffee was great and staff friendly. The view from the restaurant was beautiful, a very picturesque setting. Will be back.

Stayed May 2014, travelled with family

Travelled to Te Kaha to see a friend (Musician-David Hiakita) play at the local RSA. Stayed here for the night & had a great time. The view is stunning. The facilities such as the Hotel/Pub & the restaurant are great. The staff are friendly & leave you to your own thing. The Dishwasher didn't work (no major) & the heated spa supposedly was out of order? Not true it was working & was brilliant. Although some rooms are in need of minor maintenance, in progress. Loved it! Would stay again!

We stopped here for a couple of nights to catch up with friends and what a lovely time we had. The apartment was spacious with outstanding views of the bay, the food was excellent (the pork belly a must!) and the staff delightful. Great place to spend some "down time"

Stopped here for two nights on our honeymoon. Couldn't have picked a better place to relax in and forget that the rest of the world existed… Our studio apartment was extremely comfortable and had everything we needed. Really friendly staff, delicious food at the restaurant, beautiful views out over the bay, and relaxing by the pool in the sunshine with a book just couldn't be beaten!

We had a superb time - lovely setting, very friendly and helpful staff, the restaurant food was excellent - a great place for a very relaxed wind-down. The room was a great size and very well-equipped. We are keen to return!

FACT: Te Kaha Beach Resort is virtually the only modern resort styled hotel on the Pacific Coast Highway tor travellers going round the East Cape.

The location on a promontory overlooking the bay and beyond to the Pacific Ocean, is unbelievably beautiful. And our top floor studio enjoyed the best of this view. With the coastline in front, a narrow strip of coastal land, and the ranges sheltering the region from the south it was reminiscent of Fiji.

The staff were friendly, considerate and very helpful – a real asset! Nothing was too much trouble.

The studio was well-equipped with an excellent kitchen and full sized fridge/freezer. Not to say that we really needed to bring very much as the in house shop has all the basics plus there is a local store. There was even a clothes washer/dryer.

The resort has the usual range of bars, cafes, restaurants plus a pool complex – it is very well appointed.

While a modern hotel there are several design faults that reflected on our stay. The recent financial difficulties that the management has had to face must have prevented the polishing of this tourist gem. For Te Kaha Beach Resort hotel is a key element in the whole East Coast/Pacific Highway tourism market. We wish them well in the future.

Stayed at the Te Kaha Beach Resort over the Christmas period. Booked well in advance in a large group. Location was great and overall was a relaxing holiday. A few things let the experience down. Spa pool wasn't functioning, dishwashers in several rooms weren't working, the air conditioning in all rooms wasn't working. We especially booked for Christmas where the Christmas Lunch didn't offer anything like ham or turkey. On two occasions we walked over to the bar for drinks where on both occasions it was closed for private events. Would definitely park in the upper car park as the main entrance became a bit of a gathering point for locals not staying at the Resort and drinking. Did have one encounter whilst filleting fish caught on the beach. Not sure if it was a Resort staff member or local but got a lecture for filleting fish on the beach. It is 2014, the Foreshore and Seabed is clearly property of no one where everyone has the right to do what they want on the beach.
