Another Highlight, the most impressive landscape combined with great hospitality

The Lodge itself is stunning. The Golf just incredible. We did a lovely scenic Quad Tour and a Held excursion which was just the best. But even the tour around the property is worth while a visit. Aperitif on the Terrasse is a must like the incredible Restaurant. Great personal service

Felt a little bit like heaven

This was a mind-blowing vacation. Everything was amazing here - the scenery, the activities, the food, the people. It's a little far from everything but you pay for exclusivity. Shout outs to Thomas Gueridon and John Lewis for looking after us so well here. An experience you must have at least once in your lifetime. We can't wait to try the other Robertson Lodges!

We visited Kauri cliffs 15 years ago and it was such a pleasure to return to this beautiful coastal lodge with friends for a night after fishing in the Bay of Islands.
The rooms were exquisitely decorated, quiet and a joy to inhabit.
The golf course was challenging for the players but the views were outstanding.

The staff couldn’t have been more pleasant or helpful on al levels.

Golf very good, views fantastic

This is small golf resort with only 20 suites and incredible service. The employees are very hospitable even for New Zealand. The food is good, but could be better. The wine person is very good and goes is very good at matching the local wine with the menu.

Worth a lot more than 5 stars

My wife and I stayed for two nights in room 1. We were blown away by how nice the whole facility was and how amazing the attention to detail in every part of the operation is. Our room was so warm and comfortable. It was big and had everything you could possibly need in it. The staff were very friendly and our meals were fantastic. My wife had a facial massage and said it was brilliant and I played golf on the tough layout with the best views ever. This is a special place and one if you get the chance to visit you must do so.
