Not just a golfers heaven!
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

We like staying at lodges but never really considered this property because we don’t play golf. We ended booking when they had the Gin weekend. Best decision! Without giving too much away it’s is a piece of paradise away from the hustle and bustle. We felt guilty doing nothing when there was so much to do but we were just so relaxed! So if you want a relax unwind destress then do it in style. I would suggest a minimum of 2 nights to really soak up the atmosphere. But if you play golf then definitely come. You have got to!

Luxury Stay

An amazing small luxury lodge - wonderful suites, beautiful views across the golf course, native bush walk, great spa treatments, incredible food and warm and professional service. I can not recommend Kauri Cliff enough - if you have a few days and wish to experience luxury in a mist beautiful part of New Zealand make your way to Matauri Bay and Kauri Cliffs. Martin and his team will take care of everything.

A very special experience

An amazing night at this lodge with beautiful surroundings gorgeous room and backdrop.Wonderful views from our room.The service was exceptional from all involved and nothing was a problem.
The 5 course degustation was mouth watering with every course and the selection of wines was welcome. The lodge was warm and the huge bed and the linen made me want to stay in it for ever.
Unfortunately not enough time to experience the spa but beautiful concept and very welcoming.Love the infinity pool and the gorgeous views and country side .
We don't play golf but had lots of fun racing around(well the cart didn't go very fast)around the course and enjoying the fresh country and sea air.
A memory never to be forgotten and cherished.

Treat yourself!

A superb weekend - 2 couples for a special event. Cannot fault the attention to detail at Kauri Cliffs. The staff are fantastic, the Lodge and setting are stunning and you really feel like you've been away for days after only a 2 night stay. Food and wine are exemplary and the facilities are excellent - whether it's golf or a massage you are after. Can't wait to return!

Magnificent Kauri Cliffs

Kauri Cliffs is simply spectacular. Breathtakingly beautiful and romantic—a dream for golfing couples but a great stay for non-golfers as well. Setting, service, food and beverage all top notch. Be sure to take a cultural tour with Michael.
