About the Region

Stay for five days at the award-winning Kauri Cliffs Lodge in Northern New Zealand. Perched atop Matatauri Bay on the North Island’s Bay of Islands, Kauri Cliffs is a five-star golf resort with a golf course rated by Golf Digest as the 49th best in the world. Its location is even better than its ranking; lush green islands spring out of the bay in haphazard formations that enhance the destinations’ serenity.


Play golf four times over the week: twice at Kauri Cliffs, once at the nearby Bay of Islands, and once at Waitangi Golf Club. Your luxury golf package is all about unwinding and enjoying the slow pace of the Bay of Islands with a few rounds of leisurely golf. Play a round in the morning or afternoon, and spend the rest of your days exploring nearby attractions, walking through forests or along beaches. Enjoy the culinary delights cooked in the Kauri Cliffs kitchen, or if you want to charter a fishing boat, enjoy a BBQ with your catch on the beach. We recommend the Bay of Islands golf package for couples with either 2-8 people in your travelling party, but we can tailor it to suit the needs of any group.

Accommodation Options

The Lodge at Kauri Cliffs

One of the highest-rated resorts in the world, The Lodge at Kauri Cliffs characterises five-star luxury. Perched atop a ridgeline that descends into its world-class golf course and the Bay of Islands, The Lodge features a small number of bespoke suites and cottages with a distinct Hamptons-feel. Whitewashed walls and light earthy tones feature in the suites and cottage artwork and furniture. The light and welcoming atmosphere of the rooms are enhanced by rich green grass surrounding the property.


Guests can choose from various dining spaces throughout the property: all are small and intimate but offer something different in regards to atmosphere and views. The facilities include a world-class spa on the edge of a Totara forest that overlooks a verdant fern glen and winding stream. A lap pool, jacuzzi, sauna, gymnasium and treatment rooms will ensure you leave feeling whole and tranquil. The Lodge at Kauri Cliffs is sublime year-round, though we recommend spring and summer for the best weather.
