My partner and I heard about the Wairua Lodge through a review on the Stuff website. Given the glowing review we just had to try it for ourselves. I can honesty say the Wairua Lodge exceeded our expectations. The accommodation is first class. We selected the pamper package which included entry to the Lost Springs Thermal pools and a lovely welcome basket. We were also lucky enough to stay in the 2 bedroom apartment which was absolutely stunning. Whilst there we explored the many trails and relaxed in the conveniently placed outdoor settings. Overall we achieved our goal of a relaxing weekend away in a quality accommodation with amazing hosts.

Amazing winter break for my girlfriend and I, Debbie and Ernst were fantastic hosts and the facilities amazing, we did a few of the tracks on the grounds and loved it, cooked around the firepit and used the spa for an evening to stare up into the stars. Will definitely be back in the summer time.

Amazing service which started before we got there with a phone call and email to let us know that a road was closed so we had to go another way. It only got better when we got there with beautiful home made bread for breakfast and the nicest water we’ve ever had - so nice my daughter wanted to take a load home. The grounds were breathtaking and all the facilities were extremely nice. It’s fair to say our whole experience was faultless and we will definitely be coming back. Thank you so much!

I've travelled all over the world and have to say that the Wairua Lodge is a piece of paradise. It is the perfect way to rest and relax in a unique setting. We managed to do all the 'walks' which we highly recommend - they will not only take you through the bush, they will have you climbing waterfalls, crossing streams (watch out you don't fall in!) on the stepping stone rocks, walking over a swinging bridge and enjoying spots furnished with seating/hammocks/sun loungers in the middle of no where! We enjoyed the outdoor spa - wow! the stars are AMAZING and feel close-by. The home made bread and special touches were enjoyed, as was the nicely appointed accommodation. We missed out on the glow worms, toasting marshmallows over the fire pit and the outdoor bath, so we will definitely be returning! We can't recommend this spot highly enough - it's a true Rainforest River Retreat!
