Awaroa Lodge

Abel Tasman National Park, New Zealand

Awaroa Lodge is located in the heart of the Abel Tasman National Park. Inaccessible by road, you must leave your vehicular transport behind in order to walk, kayak, fly or water taxi to this little haven.

All guests stay here to enjoy the peace, the scenery, the remoteness and the sheer beauty of the Abel Tasman, so there is a degree of camaraderie to be found in the general atmosphere of the place. If you want to enjoy the National Park without the hassle of having to drive to Marahau every day to get the ferry/water taxi, then Awaroa offers the most comfortable place to base yourselves.

Despite its remoteness, the lodge is extremely comfortable and has been placed among the best small boutique properties by one or two of the many guidebooks covering New Zealand.
