Absolutely a must stay place for anyone looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of life. The retro facilities are more than adequate, and the staff are fabulous. Make sure you take time to relax in the Boatshed Bar as the sun goes down.............

Whether you give this place 2 or 5 stars depends on whether you want shine or soul. We prefer soul. And it’s due a refurb shortly. We had an A frame lodge with a view of the sounds. Comfortable and some basic bits which are fine by us! Good breakfast, amazing accommodation on

Lucky enough to get one of the A frame rooms with an astonishing view while doing the Queen Charlotte Track. Really lovely location-though some hungry nocturnaĺ insect visitors-and nice vibe. We are at the bar near the Jerry. The pizzas were nice and after a day of walking were

Hi Pete. Thanks so much for your amazing review. The A-frame chalets are an iconic part of Punga and are very popular so we're glad you enjoyed them. Our wonderful summer does seem to have created a few extra insects and repellent is a must. We’re delighted that you had a great time at Punga Cove. We look forward to welcoming you back soon. The Punga Cove team.

Great place to relax on day 2 of queen Charlotte track. Most rooms and restaurant have great views of the Sounds. Lively little bar right down at the jetty and very safe swimming. Bartender seemed to forget our order but the scenery was so good it didn't matter

The setting in beautiful. The staff are diverse and international. The food is awesome - especially the pizzas (but check they're making them as its usually only Friday/Saturday during summer. The décor is a bit dated. Ferneaux Lodge also does a very good dinner and their

Hi Tourist807974. Great you were able to take the time to share your experience at Punga Cove - thanks. We are working hard to make Punga Cove a fantastic experience for every single guest under new ownership – your feedback is helping us to do that. We're glad you like the pizzas.

With regards to the dated decor, we agree and the resort is about to undergo an overdue refresh. We look forward to welcoming you back soon. The Punga Cove team.

Hi Mary-Anne. We were warned there could be wasps on the Queen Charlotte Track but we actually saw very few - may depend on the time of year. Don’t recall any wasps at this Resort though, it’s a magical peaceful place well worth staying at.

Hi yes it’s great, can’t tell you about rooms as we camped next door. Do go and see the glow worms between Punga and Camp Bay at night. Just along the path by the sea. It’s not cheap but is was great quality. The kids will love the pet goat, he’s only a a few weeks old at the moment.
