Surrounded by over 20 acres of ancient podocarp forest and native bush, Te Arai Lodge sits on an elevated ridge with panoramic views across the rolling hills, beaches and surrounding islands of the Mangawhai coast

A David Trubridge “Navicular” chandelier pays homage to the distant sand dune of Mangawhai on the horizon and designates the dining area where you will gather around a repurposed solid elm table for the shared dining experience (alternatively, you can elect to have private dining in or outside your room or in a selection of other dining locations on the property).

The solid tawa timber kitchen with granite tops is a chef’s delight where memorable meals are created using fresh, organic produce from the property together with other local ingredients.

A north-facing terrace framed by purple-heart timber beams extends along the entire frontage of the property with a covered portico and open fireplace being an ideal place to watch the sunset with a glass of wine.

A 20 meter long heated pool sits directly below the terrace, complemented by a cedar hot tub set into the edge of the bush.

A generous yoga studio and gym with full length mirrors flows out onto the pool decking together with an infrared sauna, indoor and outdoor shower, bathroom facilities and a mini bar / hot beverage kitchenette.
