This was our 3rd or 4th time staying here and we absolutely love the Lodge at Kauri Cliffs. The rooms and grounds are impeccably maintained and beautiful. The staff is superior and the food is perfection. We love the spa and golf course. Both are magnificent. We call our stays at the Lodge as turbo holidays as we return from...

I can't praise The Lodge at Kauri Cliffs enough. Spent a fabulous 3 nights there at the start of March. It was our first stop ( after Auckland) on a tour of the North and South islands and it set the bar extremely high. Everything from the welcome onwards was 5 star. The views, scenery and beaches were to die...

What can you say when a place exceeds all of your imagined expectations? Kauri Cliffs is beautiful, with views that over gorgeous green mountains, going down to an azure sea. There are huge ferns growing by your room, and majestic pines as well. In the distance, there are sheep and cattle grazing, beyond the golf course, and you think you...

Huge and gorgeous house in the middle of nowhere. The perfect place to admire the fantastic landscapes from north island in NZ. The dinner was superb ( one of our perfect restaurant in NZ), service friendly and efficient, a little bit expensive. The road from russell is scenic...go go go

We spent two nights at Kauri Cliffs after having spent two night at Cape Kidnappers. While both of these resorts are absolutely stunning in every respect (they are owned by the same company), they are completely different kinds of property. While Kidnappers presents a cool and misty microclimate (even at the peak of summer), Kauri Cliffs gives off the vibe...

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
