Special Attractions and Activities Nearby

The Coastal hamlet of Awakino is peaceful and picturesque; as soon as you arrive in this remote location, with just fifteen houses and a hotel - you feel worlds apart and ready to slow down and relax. The lodge itself is open plan and spacious, with large leather couches and puzzles, games, DVD's, and a good supply of reading material. Sometimes the best way to relax is to do nothing at all, take in the view, read a good book or spend the day in the spa. On a clear day, why not take a stroll on the wide open black sand beaches, picturesque with Mt Egmont in the background and a picnic basket to enjoy lunch in your new secret spot. World-famous in New Zealand for its whitebait fishing, or try your hand at fishing for kahawhai at either the Mokau or Awakino river mouths and snapper and gurnard from the beach (we can point you to our favourite fishing locations). There's also great kite or kontiki fishing, with large snapper landed for those who know where to go. With plenty of history to experience in this historic little town, maybe make a day of it with a visit to nearby Mokau Museum, and the Mokau river cruise on the big blue boat. The famous White Cliffs tramps is only a short drive away, or take a walk to see the Three Sisters rock formations at low tide. If you’re feeling adventurous, the world-famous Waitomo Caves are just a drive away where you can experience the magical glow worms by boat.

Had a very pleasant stay, a very romantic setting and great attention to detail, noticed something different each time I looked around. Was very warm and cosy despite how cold it was outside, so perfect for a winter escape! Spa was amazing! Kitchen has everything you need and more, will be back when our family visit from overseas! Thanks Garry :) Samantha Dyson The batch has a real wow factor, awesome kitchen! Love the space, fire and style of the place. Beautiful surroundings! Teales and Kirkham, Auckland Awesome place to stay, great night! Will be back. Tu Meke, thanks! T and J Rice Relaxing weekend, fantastic peaceful place for a break away from city life. No phones, no mobiles – GREAT!!! River cruise definitely worth the trip, fresh snapper at Sparky’s – Yummy! A real hideaway. Gibbs Crew, Auckland One very stylish lady has directed this project. Great ambiance, fine quality bed linen, excellent kitchen equipment, a lovely garden plan too. We have really enjoyed our stay here. Thank you.
