Starting from NZ$8,700 per night

Offering the height of luxury on the fringes of Nelson.

Nestled into nature, with abundant bird life, this very private and discreet elevated 126-acre property is in a tranquil setting just a 10-minute drive from the charming township of Nelson. Sweeping views take in the beauty of Tasman Bay and the coastline of the Abel Tasman National Park.

The prominent peak of Mount Arthur and the often snow-capped ranges of the Kahurangi National Park across the bay are framed perfectly from the Villa.

The style of Okoro Villa is influenced by the natural tones, textures and colours of the earth - the interior spaces are infused with a warmth that delivers a sense of tranquility, calm and a unique luxury signature.

From the point of entry guests will be embraced by an effortless flow of space & refined detail. The thoughtfully designed interiors and furnishings include a spectacular living area with unparalleled views.

A fully equipped chef’s kitchen incorporating a beautiful natural stone island allows guests to interact with the Okoro Villa chef during dinner service.

The dining area is centered around a bespoke solid oak dining table crafted from locally milled timber by local artisans.

For entertainment guests can enjoy a luxurious movie room, and for those requiring business connection, a dedicated media and meeting room is available.

Okoro Villa’s three guest suites and The Treehouse exude understated elegance and luxury. The interior design has created a striking yet warm, minimalist aesthetic - inspired by Scandinavian Contemporary & Mid-Century design.

Included with each guest stay are the services of the Okoro Villa private chef, offering a continental or cooked breakfast, pre-dinner drinks with canapes and a three-course dinner menu daily. A discreet and personal service, the Okoro Villa chef will showcase the best that the land and sea of the region has to offer.

Our philosophy of food is one which allows the guest to enjoy locally sourced produce - together with the freshness and nutritional value from the extensive kitchen garden. A selection of locally sourced meat, game and fish makes for a changing daily menu. The local Farmers Market offers a bounty of local crafted cheeses, olive oils, walnuts, honey and other beautiful produce.

Okoro Villa opens directly onto sweeping sea views across the landscaped lawn & terraces, offering multiple outdoor dining and relaxation spaces.

Within the native bush setting Okoro Villa is surrounded by serene landscaped gardens including a seated outdoor firepit and poolside dining area.

The dedicated relaxation area is designed to give our guests the opportunity to acquire a sense of restfulness and tranquility during their stay. Features include a traditional sauna, plunge pool, outdoor shower and cedar hot tub.

There are various tracks through the native bush with resting seats along the way and a contemplation pond.

Further afield, the property has direct access to the walking and mountain bike trails of the adjacent Sharlands forest area.
