Rosewood Kauri Cliffs is undoubtedly a coastal haven of luxury

Perched as a testament to the art of experiential travel, Kauri Cliffs invites guests to savour the untouched grandeur of New Zealand’s coastal paradise

To city dwellers, New Zealand can often be equated with sprawling nature and vast lands, so picking the ideal accommodation to make the most of the expansive views is key. Of Robertson Lodges‘ three heritage-rich estates, one remains quietly nestled on the unspoiled coastline of its Northland. The Lodge at Kauri Cliffs, offering an unrivaled panorama across the Pacific Ocean, nearby islands, and pristine private beaches, naturally becomes a discerning choice. We pick out five highlights to look forward to at the property.

Grand views

Set on a vast 6,000-acre expanse in the Bay of Islands, Kauri Cliffs boasts an unbridled coastline where high cliffs cradle three pristine private beaches. Opening this season, newly-developed walking trails connect the three private beaches north to south, weaving through the cliff tops and down to the ocean. The Pacific Ocean, adorned with islands, serves as the picturesque backdrop to the globally renowned golf course (Top 50 in the entire world).

Opulent accommodations

The 22 spacious guest suites offer tranquility and a genuine connection to the surrounding native New Zealand forest. For those seeking a higher level of privacy and amenity, the resort provides expansive two and four-bedroom villas, each featuring private pools and spacious terraces—an idyllic haven for families or friends.
