We had three nights at Awaroa Lodge and loved every minute. The setting is so beautiful with lots of shorter walks if you don't want to venture too far. We used the lodge as a base and headed out for day walks from there. Not our plan initially but a nasty storm had done some damage to the track south of Bark Bay and luckily for us the lodge could accommodate us for an extra night at very short notice. The rooms are really well appointed, giving a feeling of luxury whilst still being relaxed. The staff were all wonderful, especially Ashley and Dajana, who went out of their way to ensure we had a fabulous experience in the restaurant also. If you have any food allergies nothing is too much trouble for the staff here as we were told that meals could be modified. One of the nicest meals I had there was a lamb dish which had been slow roasted, melt in the mouth stuff! My only criticism is that the breakfast is way too pricey, as there is really no other option you have to pay so did feel a little held hostage on that one. The front desk staff were also fabulous, booking all our water taxis for us and making sure all luggage was taken down to them for us.
