Property Highlights:expand_more

Rosewood Kauri Cliffs boasts a par 72, championship golf course and offers five sets of tees to challenge every skill level. Currently ranked 39th in Golf Digest's 'Top 100 Greatest Golf Courses in the World', there has been a renovation on the course from the world-renowned golf course architect, Rees Jones. This course is set in outstanding scenery with fifteen holes viewing the Pacific Ocean, including six lined up alongside cliffs that reach down to the sea, whilst inland holes wind through forest, marsh and farmland. Hire a set of premium clubs and head to the world-class practice range, putting and chipping greens to hone your game, and then visit the excellent golf shop.

Hotel Experiences

Take to New Zealand's inspiring outdoors. The lodge team are on hand to suggest and organise any activities you may wish to try, from nature walks where you visit a beautiful waterfall, to a game of tennis or mountain-biking - there's something for everyone. Visit Rosewood Kauri Cliff's working farm, as the farm manager guides you around the stunning 6,000 acres of impressive farmland filled with an abundance of different farm animals.

Luxury Beach

Rosewood Kauri Cliffs' private beaches provide a beautiful and picturesque setting for picnics, including at the striking Pink Beach, which is surrounded by splendid Pohutukawa trees. Waiaua Beach, with its incredible white sand, is ideal for swimming, snorkelling, kayaking and fishing. Experience New Zealand's most incredible and attractive untouched scenery atop your surfboard and discover tiny coves, point breaks, sandbars, long sandy beaches, river mouths and reefs. Let a chef cook an extraordinary private barbecue on one of the most beautiful beaches in the world, as you tuck into freshly grilled seafood or succulent lamb.

Spa Breaks

Located amongst a fern-fringed stream in Totara Forest is Rosewood Kauri Cliffs Spa, which offers tantalising personal treatments by way of the most luxurious holistic therapies and natural indigenous products. Choose from a wide range of massages, facials and impressive signature treatments as you indulge your body and soul. Enhance your experience by taking a visit to the sauna, hot tub, heated indoor lap pool and state-of-the-art fitness centre.

In Addition

There are also mountain-bikes available for guest use and the staff will be more than happy to organise excursions further afield (scenic flights, cruises and sailing are all available in the area). We can highly recommend a trip to the Kawati Glow Worm Caves, which are fascinating and beautiful in equal measure.
