Only one night here at this amazing lodge. Every attention to detail was thought of and the rooms were extremely comfortable, tastefully decorated and with lots of amenity. The spa was great and the lap pool, sauna and jacuzzi felt like we had them to ourselves. We both had a massage, which was good, but not great and I would...

If you became a multimillionaire and could afford one of the best locations on the planet to build your dream home , then you would build it here overlooking the beautiful bay of islands and you'd call it Kauri Cliffs . If you were the generous type , you might allow some guests to stay and to occupy them you'd...

Had a wonderful three night stay at Kauri Cliffs with my daughter. Only negative....our stay was too short. Property is beyond beautiful and the décor and furnishings are amazing. Pink beach is so amazingly beautiful and great for shelling. Great food and wonderful wine make this a top choice for discriminating travelers.

What an amazing place the lodge feels like you are entering someones home, a very nice one. The staff are beyond fantastic and clearly have great pride in working there and seeing you enjoy yourself. The actual cabins, rooms, (I struggle to think of a suitable word) are fantastic. You deserve to spoil yourself occasionally and this is a great...

My wife and I stayed 4 nights in May. This was our second visit and it remains our favorite resort. Not the easiest to find in heavy rain which magically cleared on arrival so the rest of the day was sunny and warm. Our visit coincided with a Domperignon 4 course dinner set up on a long elegant banquet table....

Wonderful service, amazing food, lovely facility and grounds. And the sunrises are incredible! This property is absolutely special. I felt like I was staying at a friend's house. It could have been very romantic if I had not been alone, but they made sure I did not feel lonely. Highly recommend!

Having taken short breaks to Matakauri Lodge in Queenstown for the last couple of years running, it was time to mix it up and head north to the Bay of Islands and The Lodge at Kauri Cliffs, the first of the Robertson properties. The reviews I wrote for Matakauri could equally apply to The Lodge. The only reason it gets...

Gorgeous weather upon arrival, which was lucky because we were able to grab a golf cart and do a tour around the golf course, which borders some of the most spectacular scenery anywhere. We took a walk down to Pink Shell Beach where we found oodles of lovely shells and a safe, sheltered and extremely private swimming spot. Even when...

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
