Our law firm had a very successful business retreat at Lodge 9. The accommodation was superb and the meeting space in the nearby Shed 7 worked well for the business part of our stay. The surroundings are beautiful and the care we received from Kate at Lodge 9 was faultless. Nothing was a problem. Our team left feeling relaxed and energized. We will definitely be back.
Lodge 9 was the perfect location for friends & family attending an event at Shed 7. We could accommodate older family members, little ones & those who wanted to party. Everything was immaculate. It felt special & yet so comfortable like you were at home. We are going back!
Stunning location, stunning accommodation. Super friendly and attentive staff. We stayed 3 nights while we completed our dive course with Dive Tutukaka. The decor is chic and super clean and there is a plentiful supply of beautiful breakfast ingredients. Even freshly baked bread.
We stayed in Lodge9 the night before a two-dive day with Dive! Tutukaka. Kate and the team were communicative, welcoming and helpful. The stay at the Lodge was excellent, and its clear they've paid attention to the small details. It was good to get an intitial refresher dive in the water with the fish after such a long time. The second dive was even better around the reef. Vis was excellent, loads of marine life and some photos to treasure. Highly recommend Lodge9 and Dive! Tutukaka.
Our family had booked out the entire Lodge 9 for this year's New Years break and had an absolute blast staying there. Every detail of the lodge was perfection and the salt water pool was such a hit for everyone. The outdoor courtyard was also a highlight too where we had a nice family dinner under the fairy lights. Kate was incredibly accommodating in every way, she was quick to respond to my emails, kept the house super clean when we went out for our day trip and provided us with so much yummy goodness. It was a perfect family trip anyone could ever ask for!! Thank you so much Kate and your team for the best time ever!
Everything about this place is amazing. Kate and the team are so welcoming, they are so organised, the rooms are warm and so cosy and spacious. Breakfast is a real treat, and they go out of their way to make your stay extra special. Definitely recommend! thanks guys Lucy and James
This is our 2nd time staying here and we absolutely love it!! The rooms are so spacious, comfortable and extremely clean. Kate's breakfast is delicious (and I'll keep coming back for the granola alone) and this is the perfect spot whether diving or just visiting Tutukaka.
Awesome accommodation! Love the styling of all areas, comfortable and feels like a home away from home. Staff are lovely, breakfast is amazing and lots of amenities. All round would definitely recommend!
An amazing place - we ( Myself with 2 kids, aged 11 & 8) had a ball. We did the Poor Knights snorkelling trip - spectacular - the kids had a ball. We carried out some walks - Whale Bay is close by - beautiful beach - shore lined Pohutukawa trees for shade. The team at the Lodge were very helpful with recommendations and really looked after us. We will be coming back!
We had a wonderful stay. Everything is beautifully presented- the rooms, the communal area, the outdoor area, the breakfast. Kate is friendly and welcoming. It’s fabulous being on site at Dive Tutukaka- it was soooo nice to come back from a hard day diving and have a luxury room right there to relax in. We had the Tui room upstairs, with a private balcony set right up against the NZ native bush. We saw kereru, Tui and piwakawaka. Wonderful place to stay. We will be back!
