Review of Hei Matau Lodge
5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 24 Feb 2016
We had a 2 night break here from Auckland and had a very relaxing and enjoyable stay. The hosts, Fiona and Peter, were fantastic and we couldn't find fault with anything.Having the use of a car meant we could explore the island also. Thank you!

My husband and I stayed 1 night on Waiheke on our whirlwind trip through New Zealand for our honeymoon. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Hei Matau Lodge all thanks to Peter and Fiona who were wonderful hosts. We thoroughly enjoyed the view of the serene beach, delicious breakfast, and wonderful canapés that Fiona made. The room we stayed in was beautiful with an amazing view! It had a mini-refrigerator, cookies, tea, fresh fruit, a bottle of wine, and various other drinks. Peter and Fiona even got some music and special lights out after we came back from dinner to make our honeymoon celebration even more special. Peter was an excellent host, offering to pick us up from the ferry, take us down to the beach (Oneroa Beach), and out to dinner at Cable Bay Vineyards. It was wonderful since we did not bring our rental car from Auckland. It was expensive, but well worth the money for the experience. We would definitely make the trip to Waiheke and stay at Hei Matau again.

We stayed at the Lodge three nights after our wedding.It was just what we needed after a lot of intense wedding magic. Fiona and Peter took care of everything we needed and made our stay a special one. All the meals were amazing, each breakfast kept us full for the whole day. We thoroughly enjoyed the walking trail, private beach and even managed to use the kayaks. The infinity pool and spa were icing on the cake. We would recommend this lodge to anyone looking for a chilled honeymoon or a taste of low key luxury.

Our 4 day stay at Hei Matau in January introduced us to the best New Zealand has to offer.. Great hospitality, unique architecture, delicious breakfasts & evening bits, accurate advise on trails and things to do. Most of all, Peter, with his dry sense of humor, and Fiona with her attention to every detail, made our stay carefree and fun.

Any trip to the North Island should include some downtime at Hei Matau

Room tip: The infinity pool-side room provided ultimate in views and convenience

An amazing location overlooking the water. Peter and Fiona the hosts look after all your needs including preparing beautiful canapés each night, supplying an amazing cooked breakfast each morning all freshly prepared, picking you up from the ferry, making restaurant booking and taking you to and from the restaurants which are close by. The little extras they provide make your stay very enjoyable, homemade cookies , a bar stocked with water, soft drinks and a bottle of wine on arrival. It is expensive but well worth the experience.

A truly magnificent experience. We stayed for a couple of nights after our wedding and were so happy with everything Hei Matua Lodge had to offer. The views were stunning, Peter & Fiona are extremely accommodating and the breakfast and evening canapés were 5 star! We wish we could have stayed longer but now is back to reality as they say. You will not be disappointed.Bring on our Anniversary's cause I know where Ill be spending mine!
