In a word “idyllic”. My wife and I spent two nights here at the end of December. We couldn’t believe how perfect the location. The lodge itself, quite small really, was nevertheless spacious and really gave the sense of living in the rainforest. Beautiful accommodation, simple, comfortable, built into the landscape, eco-friendly. Delicious food. Excellent bar. Welcoming wood fires by night (it was chilly outside). But what really made it was the team, headed by manager Suzanne Wells, Rene, Ben, Theo, Leo were able to turn their hand at anything and were an incredible team. I can’t praise Awaroa too highly. Sea kayaking, treks, (tramps in New Zealand) through the forest, transportation, conveying the baggage, everything to order. A word about some of the earlier reviews. Management of Awaroa was taken over by Peppers some time in 2012. Before then evidently service was ho hum. It’s completely different now. A must visit if ever there was one.
