Te Arai Lodge
Mangawhai, New Zealand
Built with a dedicated studio, Te Arai Lodge is a must for anyone seeking yoga and wellness classes.
Boasting a spectacular location, this boutique lodge property is surrounded by acres of ancient podocarp forest and native bush. Its elevated position atop a ridgeline affords guests expansive views across rolling hills towards the beaches and islands of the Mangawhai coast. The property’s design is inspired by the natural surrounds, and the ambience is distinctly welcoming. Enjoy authentic ‘garden-to-table’ dining at the lodge. Organic produce grown on the estate is complemented by fresh local ingredients including line-caught fish sourced very close to the property.
Available on an exclusive use basis only, Te Arai Lodge ideally caters to six guests in the two main suites and the standalone cottage. However, on special request, a bunk room and an owner’s suite can be added to accommodate up to twelve guests. The beautifully decorated suites take in views of the countryside and feature balconies and outdoor baths.
Partake of yoga and movement classes, massages and spa treatments; or perhaps you may like to enjoy a bike ride along the pristine Te Arai Beach to get a true sense of place.
many many many thanks!!!!!!
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.
