Luxury Holidays At Te Koi The Lodge at Bronte

A gem of a property tucked away overlooking the shimmering waters of the Waimea Estuary, Te Koi The Lodge at Bronte enjoys a secluded setting surrounded by natural beauty just a short distance from Nelson City in one direction and Abel Tasman National Park in the other. Owned and run by chef and travel expert Ali and Ian, you can expect personalised, attentive service and warm hospitality to accompany the beautifully-appointed accommodation, which exudes comfortable elegance and a serene ambience. Spend time exploring New Zealand's smallest national park - cruising, sailing or kayaking through this coastal paradise opens up a world of inviting sandy beaches backed by pristine native forest. Back at the lodge, wander through the estate's extensive grounds, do laps in the pool, sip a glass of wine on your own private deck with tranquil water views, and take a seat in the Lodge for exquisite meals crafted from the freshest local ingredients that pay homage to the region's culinary heritage.
