I walked off the Queen Charlotte Track to discover this lovely resort- buildings and huts lead up the hill from the blue waters of the waterfront, including a pool, grassed area, hammocks, sun chairs, spa and restaurant. The view from my Tui Chalet was beautiful- through the palms and greenery to the water below. I could see the view from...

Christine and I (Shaun) were the sole walkers on the track in late August, although there were a number of cyclists. It rained most of the trip but that was OK as the scenery was spectacular. Our stay at Punga Cove was excellent and the best on the trip. The young Argentinian couple managing the resort were extraordinarily helpful. They...

Very nice unit with a great view over looking the sea. Unit was very tidy. The lady who was at reception and the restaurant was very helpful, she also arranged for my bag to be picked up. Dinner at the restaurant was good.

The Punga Cove Resort was one of the highlights on our Queen Charlotte Track walk. The staff were fantastic and special mention needs to go to Sebastian and his partner (sorry can't remember to pronounce her name, but she was awesome). They couldn't have been more helpful during our stay, only wish we could have stayed longer. The food in...

For an overnight stay after a day of walking, these chalets were great. The staff did all they could to satisfy our needs. Food was delicious , small but local menu. Like most of our stays, Internet available only in common areas. Would definitely return!

Well, the weather wasn't on our side yesterday when we walked from Furneaux Lodge at Endeavour Inlet round to Punga Cove and we arrived like two drowned rats. But we were embraced by Punga Cove like a warm hug. Their accommodation in the Tui Lodge was airy and quirky and the drying room, a Godsend. .. but it was the...

I had 24 hours here before starting a walk on the Queen Charlotte Track. It was a winter's day, so there were very few guests, and staff were very attentive. Amenities-wise there was a bar/cafe at the water level with stunning views of the Sounds. When I took my drink outside, staff followed with cushions for the seats and insect...
