We spent the last few days of a month-long honeymoon at Kauri Cliffs, and I'm so glad we did! The resort is absolutely amazing and I dream of going back again. The food was absolutely delicious, staff was friendly and helpful, and the property was to die for! The resort itself is on a working farm, and the area surrounding...

Another stunning afternoon dining out at what must be the best restaurant in Northland... The menu was a 3 course treat - check it out the images. A fabulous place to take a loved one and share a special treat or just a group of friends for a lovely relaxing afternoon. We started with a Pelorus Bay pink bubbles sitting...

My daughter and I had a much needed 21/2 day get-away at The Lodge at Kauri Cliffs and it was by far the best vacation we have ever had. The setting is absolutely beautiful with stunning vistas, gorgeous private beaches, breathtaking views with spectacular sunrises- so peaceful and fun. From the personal greeting when we arrived by the manager to...

After a long excursion across the ocean, the warm greeting by the staff helped us to feel at home straight away. The landscape is breathtaking - in every direction. Our room was charming, perfectly appointed and all windows overlooking the open view over the golf course to the ocean. The staff are well trained, and see to every request. The...

This is an absolutely spectacular lodge. The views are breathtaking. What a feeling to wake up in the morning to sunrise over the sea. Absolutely unbeatable scenery. The guides the hotel organized were excellent - sailing, fishing, horse riding and atvs were all excellent. The staff is very friendly and tries very hard to make sure every need is accommodated....

We spent 2 nights (including my birthday) and were warmly welcomed at arrival. The place sits in a stunning surrounding that just takes your breath away. We spent hours looking at the views. The staff is very professional and friendly, and the highlight was the sommelier, Valeria. She advised us each night on wine options and was just amazing. She...

Kauri Cliffs looks fabulous in the professional web site photos and, unusually, this matches reality. The resort is spectacularly positioned overlooking the eastern seaboard of New Zealand’s North Island. It is located on a large farming estate which has been carefully and very thoughtfully put together by the Robertson family (Julian Robertson, Tiger Fund). The hotel and lodges reflect careful...

This surely must be one of the most beautiful golf courses in New Zealand. We are not golfers per se, but enjoyed every moment from the warm welcome to our final departure. We feel three nights is a minimum you should stay to get a good feel of the hospitality, food, surrounds, walks and golf( if you play). The weather...

Huge, beautiful lodge just like picture on internet. But MUCH MORE!!! The lodge is surrounded by a gorgeous lush green 18-hole golf course with AWESOME views of Matauri Bay*s turquoise blue waters. We are NOT golfers, but we scheduled a golf CART and drove the entire golf course as SLOWLY as possible to make this experience LAST as LONG AS...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
In the far north of New Zealand lies an unspoiled peninsula. High cliffs and a few ranches on this welcoming island which won the hearts of Julian and Josie Robertson. After designing a magnificent 18-hole golf course, the couple created a splendid colonial residence with outlying cottages. Space is the real luxury, the suite an apartment, the bathroom a spa. The epitome of refinement in a distant corner of the world. ... more   less
