Kiwis think of experiences in nature as “high end”. To be in the middle of untouched beauty is to us the best buzz you can get. What is extraordinary is how our lodges and retreats combine nature, and sophistication in such a way that it all feels good for the soul. It’s not just the location that makes it all so amazing, it’s this region’s absolute dedication to providing the ultimate experience for all who visit.

There is no direct road access to Awaroa Lodge. It is the Abel Tasman’s sole, luxury wilderness lodge.

The Lodge offers 26 deluxe and spacious suites, including superior studios with private decks. Rest in nature, or enjoy a range of activities including guided walks and kayaking. This exclusive destination, in the very heart of untouched nature, is as good as it gets anywhere in the world. It really is one of the supreme Abel Tasman experiences that get right into your bones.
