The Lodge at Kauri Cliffs, Bay of Islands

Kauri Cliffs is a stunningly beautiful 2200-hectare estate set on a remote plateau high above the sea in New Zealand’s far north. It is home to one of the world’s most renowned golf courses with most holes offering amazing views of offshore islands and the magnificent Pacific Ocean. Besides golf, the estate provides many other activities, including tennis, swimming, mountain biking, hiking, horseback riding, hunting, fishing and sailing; to name a few.


Kauri Cliffs is located in the bay of islands, in the north island of New Zealand, set on 6,500 acres near the beautiful Matauri Bay. The lodge boasts stunning views of the Pacific Ocean and is home to a par 72 PGA championship golf course. Cape Brett and the offshore Cavalli Islands can be viewed from the verandas, lounge, card and dining rooms of the lodge.

Your room

Kauri Cliffs consists of eleven outlying guest cottages, each with two guest suites which makes twenty-two rooms on the estate. Every suite has its own private porch, open fireplace, walk-in closets and a luxury bathroom. The cottages are nestled on the edge of a sylvan forest overlooking the Pacific ocean and the green, green grass of the golf course.

Why we like it

It’s not every day you get to combine 5-star luxury and stunning ocean views with one of the top 100 golf courses in the world.
