Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We stayed in February/2024, for a business event, and left 1600 US dollars and our passports in the safe. On the last day we went to pick it up and it was missing 500 dollars. We spoke to management, but so far we have not heard back from the hotel.

Kauri Cliffs Lodge offers a unique luxurious experience on all levels. Our deluxe suite overlooking the panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean & the immaculate green golf course was certainly magical and enchanting. We don’t play golf but we wished we did as the golf course with its 15 oceanfront holes looked absolutely fabulous. We however enjoyed using the golf buggy to drive around to explore the stunning property and discover the many nature walks. The food was also excellent which was fully inclusive. We enjoyed all meals. Dinner was definitely the highlight with a degustation menu with matching wines. I’m still dreaming of my creamy delicious chocolate mousse!! Staff were equally outstanding, especially Debbie and John who continually gave exceptional warm friendly humorous service. 10/10 👏 Overall - A spectacular luxurious lodge overlooking the Pacific Ocean, coastlines and 18 hole golf course. ⛳️ Kauri Cliffs lodge delivers pure indulgence in service, cuisine, facilities , accommodation and activities.

Kauri Cliffs is a beautiful property. This was our second visit and we were so looking forward to coming back. The management has changed as they are now managed by Rosewood and are going thru some major changes that unfortunately are not positive. Last year they offered a really fun Summer series which was a different activity everyday. They had a putting contest, wine tasting and a pickleball clinic when we were there. They eliminated this. Last year each night they had a different menu and the food was very good. Now the menu was the same each night and the food was mediocre and service was very slow. Add to that a total lack of amenities in the cottage and I think Rosewood should carefully consider what they are eliminating. Golf was great and the staff is still very helpful and most accommodating.

Stunning location with great staff and great food. The views from almost every hole rival any golf course in the world….and I don’t even play golf! The linens are like sleeping on a cloud. There are real Silver ferns on property so I finally got to see one! Having a golf cart to tool around in is a great benefit.

For $5800 per night we certainly expected more than was delivered. We had just arrived after 3 nights from their competition in Russell which way over delivered at a third the price. The room: we booked a two bedroom unit with the understanding we would be upgraded. Well, it turns out we had already booked the highest category and they couldn’t upgrade to next level because it was full of employees of the new company Rosewood that is taking over. The layout was poorly designed. To get to the primary bathroom from the primary bedroom you had to exit the bedroom and go through the common hallway. Who thought that was a good idea? I bent down to tie my shoe on our third day and saw a belt sticking out from under the bed. It didn’t belong to us. Which means for three days at least the house keeping staff had missed it. Gross. There were only three towels in the bathroom so when you get caught in a rain storm and need to dry off (we did) there weren’t towels to use for showering with after. The food: so bad our first night that instead of going back to the property for lunch after our excursion we looked around for any alternative. We didn’t find anything so had lunch at Kauri Cliffs and it was reasonable. Dinner that night was significantly better than the first night. The service: everyone seemed to be trying hard but with the exception of the true professionals like Sebastian (food and beverage manager) and James (guest services) they really didn’t get what five star service should be. In summary: beautiful property with potential but wildly overpriced for what you currently get particularly when you compare to the alternatives in the area.

We visited the lodge recently for 4 nights on our honeymoon across New Zealand. We were blown away at how amazing the property was and how personable the staff was. The golf was first class. We would highly recommend this property to anyone who truly needs some relaxation while taking in the views, private beaches, and the 6000 acres of private land the lodge has to explore. This was the highlight of our 12 day trip.

As a professional travel writer for 30 years this was one of my finest stays anywhere-- the lodge is exemplary in everything it takes on and the golf course was a delight, the people warm and sincere, the location beautiful beyond description. Don't miss pink beach.

Want to celebrate something special to you is where the 'Cliffs' excel. They make you feel very unique and in all ways make you trip there, for whatever reason, a memorable occasion. And it is those outstanding events that plant a special memory in your mind where many others simply blur!

We stayed at Kauri Cliffs for three nights in March 2023 and it was truly wonderful. The service, views, food, golf, our room, the relaxed environment - everything was incredible. The staff are so friendly and super-accommodating and make you feel like family. The golf course was the most picturesque I have played. Also - because the course doesn't receive a lot of play, you feel like you have the entire course to yourself which was a nice bonus. It was a special occasion destination for us and it did not disappoint in the least. We will be talking about our experience there for a long time!
