This is a special place almost at the end of the Karikari peninsular consisting of a hotel complex, 10 villas, a 18 hole golf course and a winery. Very impressing is the panorama view of a very beautiful scenery. Quiet and pleasant.
The hotel complex consists of three buildings: Reception and shop, a building with lodge rooms and another with restaurant, bar, lounge etc. , the last two buildings framed with a roofed veranda. There also are 10 very well equipped villas (semidetached) also with stunning outlooks.
We had booked a superior room, approx 35 square meters with sitting area, desk and view to golf course, dunes and ocean. Everything very nice, with sliding door and mosquito protection. Internet is available at very reasonable rates.
Breakfast and dinner are served in the restaurant, lunch is available at the winery (short walk across the street). At the winery the only possibility to sit protected from the constant wind was in a big gazebo with limited view through the plastic windows. Hopefully only an in-between solution.
Quality of the food was good, somewhat restricted offer at the Continental breakfast, special dishes could be ordered. The service quick (almost a bit too quick) and attentive.
The wunderful pool area is protected from the wind by well arranged plants and provides a perfect place to swim and to sunbath.
We felt very comfortable and will probably go back there for a few more days and will then stay in one of the villas.
