My wife and I had the pleasure of experiencing Marino Ridge Lodge early March 2022. From the moment you arrive until you sadly have to depart, the experience is one that we will cherish and remember forever! Peter & Caroline would have to be the most warm and caring hosts on the planet! First class service and cuisine, all within one of Waiheke's hidden gems. Marino Ridge Lodge is superbly positioned with some of the best views on the planet, the rooms and facilities are totally 5 star plus and will leave you with a lasting impression of pure opulence. Our spectacular hosts went above and beyond to deliver one epic, luxurious weekend away. Our suite, the Coromandel, was incredible, sleeping there with the ranch slider to our private balcony wide open at night, looking up to the stars was amazing! The tour around Waiheke with Peter was incredible, we covered so much and took in some of the finest scenery you can view in NZ! So quiet, peaceful, total luxury and we left feeling very much like were leaving two good friends behind! Kind regards Craig & Heather Counsell

Room tip: All suite's are first class, we loved the Coromandel!

My lovely wife whisked me away to celebrate our wedding anniversary and a significant birthday. I didn’t know we were going to Waiheke until the day before we left and I had no idea we’d be staying in such a magnificent place. Peter and Caroline were warm and welcoming from the first to last minute of our stay. We had the front room with the most magnificent view. Tui and other birds serenaded us throughout our stay. Our hosts expertly recommended all sorts of attractions and served the most amazing breakfasts. Tasty, filling and beautifully presented food. We could not recommended Marino Ridge highly enough. It was such a special treat. We will definitely be coming back! Thanks so much.

Staying at Marino ridge was an absolute dream! The views are unreal, the hosts are so genuine and welcoming and the standard of food and comfort they provide is incredible.
I don't think there is enough emphasis on the fact that the property sits above a private walkway that leads to a secluded beach with crystal clear still water if you prefer a beach swim, although the pool and spa are fantastic aswell!
Highly recommend the honeymoon package, the extras included and the dinner at mudbrick really made our stay special.
We will 100% be back for another visit!

What an amazing place! If you have a birthday, an anniversary or just want somewhere special to stay, Marino Ridge is the place. From the moment we arrived by helicopter straight onto the lawn, we were greeted by the owners and everything from that moment on was perfect. The views out over the ocean, Waiheke Island and the surrounding Islands are stunning.
We stayed in the Owhanake Suite and the views are every bit as nice as anywhere we have ever been in the world. The only sounds are from the many birds in the lush green trees surrounding the property. The dining areas, the swimming pool and spa pool areas all look straight out at that stunning view. The owners, Caroline and Peter gave us so many great tips about what to do and see on the Island. We have been to Waiheke many times, but on this trip we explored areas of the Island we didn’t even know existed.
The breakfast every morning was healthy,delicious and presented like a work of art. Marino Ridge is where you want to take a loved one if you’re missing your trip to Italy or one of the Greek Islands. Thank you, Peter and Caroline for making our 3 day stay so memorable.
