Highly recommend. Friendly hosts offering exceptional service. Ratanui is a beautifully furnished lodge with outstanding attention to detail, feels like you have stepped back in time! The lounge and restaurant setting is a rare treat and the set menu was delicious. Thanks for having us!

Spent another relaxing weekend at this amazing property. The rooms are so comfortable and clean and nothing is too much trouble for the hosts Steve & Pete. Would highly recommend Ratanui Lodge as THE only place to stay when in Golden Bay.
