The Resurgence, Abel Tasman National Park, New Zealand

Our rating: First Class

Located on the edge of the Abel Tasman and Kahurangi National Parks, The Resurgence offers comfort and tranquility in a beautiful native bush setting. The main lodge building, as well as the separate guest bush chalets and lodges, have been carefully created to blend in with the setting, providing great views as well as peace and privacy. Each room is a wonderful combination of natural wood finishings together with touches of luxury such as underfloor heating in the spacious en suite facilities. The Bush Chalets and Lodges are designed for guests to be self-contained, with excellent kitchen facilities and barbecues on the decks.

Breakfast provisions are provided each morning, as well as a few basics to get you started if you cater for yourself. The rooms within the lodge are booked with breakfast and dinner included. There is also a pool and spa pool for guest use, and the extensive grounds offer numerous walking trails, from a short stroll through native bush to hear the birds, to longer hikes. Your hosts, Peter and Clare, are keen naturalists, and are actively involved in a number of conservation projects including Friends of Flora, working to release kiwi's back into the local area. They will be more than happy to share their passion for the native flora and fauna with you.
