Outdoor dining and relaxing area at boutique lodge

Listen to the bird call from the spa, hear the kiwi’s call at dusk, delight in the fairy lights of glow worms on a Maungatautari night walk, test your mettle on the full day hike, or cycle the nearby River Trails to discover the many moods of the mighty Waikato river.

There is as much to do as you wish.

Nature at your doorstep for a restful stay

We like real food and real flavor in a relaxed dining experience. We love slow food, meaning food that doesn’t come from a packet or a tin. Food that is prepared with love and care for your enjoyment and pleasure.

All our meals are served buffet style.
