We travelled to NZ to visit family and to get married. We have a young daughter and could only manage child care for one night therefore the wedding night had to be really special.
The people at isite in Whitianga recommended Wairua Lodge without hesitation but no amount of pictures or descriptions could do it justice.
We had the river deck suite which was truely awsome. We arrived later than expected and TAM and Charles were waiting for us with Champagne on ice as they knew it was our wedding night.
They were truely lovely, the food they served us (privately in our suite) was first rate and their contribution topped off a truely maghical day.
They have what they call the 'bath house' which is basically an open sided hut in the middle of the bush with nice deep bath in it. You can lay in the bath surrounded by candles, listening to chill out music accompanied by the amazing night time stars with the perfumes of nature enhacing the mood!
There is also a crystal clear river with ice cold swimming holes to cool yourself down if the NZ sun gets too much. I'm looking forward to the wedding anivesary in December 2010!
