Te Koi, The Lodge at Bronte

Perched on the crux of the beautiful Bronte Peninsula, surrounded by flowering gardens, apple orchards and a boutique vineyard, Te Koi is more akin to an elaborate guest house than a hotel. The estate is comprised of just five beautiful villas that nestle on the edge of the Waimea Estuary and offer spa baths, sumptuous beds and private plots of manicured gardens. The estate also boasts a heated outdoor pool, private tennis courts and free hire of mountain bikes and canoes which allow you to forge your own exploration of this picturesque area.


A scenic 30-minute drive from Nelson airport will take you halfway between Nelson city and the Abel Tasman National Park. The central location of Te Koi makes it the perfect destination to get your adventure on as you swim, kayak and dive at New Zealand’s only coastal national park. More of an urbanite? The close proximity to Nelson City will allow you to uncover some of the local boutiques and sample the delicious café culture.

Your room

Whatever you choose between the suites, villas or residence, you can be assured that you’ll be privy to spectacular views and luxurious touches that all come back to the lodge’s home-from-home ethos. For a more romantic stay, book into a shoreline suite and fall asleep to the sound of the sea.

Why we like it

Aside from the hand-made chocolates and friendly service, Te Koi is the definition of charm and intimacy. A family run establishment, you can expect to be welcomed into the lodge with the warmth and hospitality as you relax and unwind in the tranquil surroundings.
