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.

Experiences while staying here
The following activities are designed to give you the most authentic experiences of the area where you’re staying. We work with local guides, who use their knowledge and often a resident’s eye to show you the main sights and more out-of-the-way attractions. Our specialists can also suggest outdoor pursuits and activities, such as cooking classes, that will introduce you to the traditions of the area’s inhabitants.
The first part of the excursion starts with a cruise up the coastline, passing golden beaches and secluded bays, to Onetahuti (Tonga Bay), where you visit Tonga Island, which is home to the largest seal colony in the park and has many species of sea bird and sometimes Penguins.
