Situated in the Abel Tasman National Park, this hotel enjoys some of the best parkland in New Zealand. The lodge itself is made up of 26 high end villas, and is just a couple of minute’s walk from the wonderful Awaroa Beach.
The property runs activities in and around the spectacular coastline, including kayaking and nature walks.
Awaroa Lodge is a contributor to the Nelson-Tasman Sustainable Tourism Charter. The Nelson-Tasman Sustainable Tourism Charter is a regionally defined vision of what sustainable tourism means for local tourism businesses. The key themes of the charter incorporate environmental, social, cultural and economic factors of sustainability.
The charter recognises the fact that a business must be financially viable, and helps identify simple, practical and achievable actions to improve sustainability and deliver long-term financial savings.
Abel Tasman NP
It may be a smallish park in relative terms, but the pristine coastline has stunning beaches and scenic forests enough to warrant spending time here. The best way to take it in is to hike along the Coastal Track, seeing Golden Bay and Takaka Hill on the way.
