The Lodge

Bay of Islands Lodge is a two-level, cedar-clad guest lodge surrounded by native bush and overlooking the Veronica Channel between Paihia and historic Russell. Every major room enjoys uninterrupted views of the bay as far as Moturoa Island, Black Rocks, and beyond.

Design and Style

The design is contemporary and the colour scheme and materials are natural and earthy (native and imported timbers feature); the style is sophisticated simplicity.

The lodge features an expansive, open-plan lounge and dining area, floor-to-ceiling windows and large decks to showcase the captivating views – of nothing but sea, native bush, and sky.

Special Features

To provide a luxurious and relaxing environment from which to enjoy those therapeutic sea views, the lodge also features a central wood-burning fireplace, rich dark-brown leather sofas, and four spacious guest bedrooms.

Separating the bedrooms on the lower floor is an ‘infinity’ swimming pool and surrounding deck. There is also a guest library, guest laundry, and games.

Aotearoa – the land of the long white cloud – was settled around the 9th Century by Maori explorers who crossed the Pacific Ocean by wooden canoe, arriving not far from our idyllic location in New Zealand’s renowned Bay of Islands.
In ancient Maori legend the Koru – the uncurling new leaves of the Ponga, New Zealand’s Silver Fern – symbolises new life and well-being of extended family and of all those with whom hospitality is shared. This richly-endowed symbol, together with rippling waters that represent the all-important sea
(the revered source of daily food), aptly form the lodge’s emblem.
