A scene at once peaceful, inspiring and revitalising.
Amongst the small hamlet of buildings quiet sanctuaries provide private space to reflect upon the days activities or ponder adventures to be pursued. Punatapu will be your home...we will care for you in a warm and personal way. We delight in doing the little things well and pride ourselves in providing simple elegance with every detail of your visit.
Guest suites surrounding a courtyard are separate from the outdoor kitchen whareumu and the main lodge which houses the lounge, dining room, breakfast conservatory and library. Exclusively furnished with natural materials, fine textiles, artworks, and furniture handcrafted by New Zealanders, Punatapu has style, strength of character and a special relationship with the environment. more
