The Lodge at Kauri Cliffs
Bay of Islands, New Zealand
Elegant and refined, The Lodge at Kauri Cliffs is a country club style resort offering one of New Zealand's top golf courses and not one, but three private beaches!
In the Far North lies an unspoilt peninsula where high cliffs plunge to the sea and meet three private, pristine white sand beaches. Set on 6,000 acres near Matauri Bay, The Lodge at Kauri Cliffs affords spectacular 180 degree views of the Pacific Ocean with panoramic vistas encompassing Cape Brett, the famous ‘Hole in the Rock’ and the Cavalli Islands.
A splendid plantation style lodge hosts elegant living rooms and a beautiful dining room with outdoor decks overlooking the ocean. The magnificent spa facility nestles at the edge of a native Totara forest along with twenty two guest suites. Outstanding cuisine reflects abundant local produce combined with the very best ingredients and wine from around the world. The David Harman-designed championship golf course is ranked as one of the best in the world.
Opportunities abound for on-property outdoor pursuits including hikes to the waterfall, tennis, picnics on Pink Beach, guided bird watching, fishing, surfing and farm tours.

We have been blown away by everything - hotels, food, people, golf, wine - the list is endless. You did an amazing job
Planning a 7 week trip is daunting enough without the complications of COVID cancellations, rebookings, and closures. Yet every connection, every transportation detail, every accommodation, every meal, everything was flawless.
From our arrival in Sydney .. to our last stop in Queenstown .. we will carry with us the best memories of our trip and all of your efforts. The incredible private boat tours .. the bespoke wine tours with the best guides .. our accommodations .. and the excellent itinerary and pacing, made for a perfect trip.
We can't thank Southern Crossings enough for making this trip all, and more, than we had imagined. You allowed us to see the best of your countries: the people, the beauty, the culture. Five stars, a blue ribbon, and a gold medal to everyone at Southern Crossings!
Your country, its people and your team could not have made us feel more welcome.
Thank you for all the special moments you enabled us to experience.
