Accommodation Gem - Te Mahia Bay Resort

Te Mahia Bay Resort is a small oasis, tucked away in the trees, right on the beach in the Kenepuru Sounds that we came across on our afternoon walk today. In addition to their standard rooms, owners Trevor Hook and his wife Jann have recently added two self-contained units on their property and in general, from what we saw, there was a lot to like about this resort.

So who would enjoy staying here? We think that those looking for peace and quiet in a place of stunning natural beauty would be very happy at Te Mahia Resort

There's the option of fishing expeditions with experienced guides, kayaking in the super-safe bay, water-skiing, swimming, or exploring the nearby Queen Charlotte Track. Maybe pop across the bay by water taxi for a dinner or lunch in style at the luxury Raetihi Resort.Resort.

This is no jetset international resort, but more a friendly home away from home experience, meeting real New Zealanders who will make you feel welcome from the moment you arrive.

You can see the location of Te Mahia Bay Resort here. You can either drive directly to Te Mahia Bay, or if arriving on the Interislander Ferry at Picton, a water-taxi can easily be arranged.
