What a beautiful quiet setting for this amazing lodge. The rooms very spacious and thoughtfully decorated. The food was exquisite and the staff couldn't have been more friendly and helpful. I would highly recommend a visit.

We stayed at Poronui Lodge for a family celebration. From our arrival to our departure, the staff treated us like family and couldn't do more to help us throughout our time there. The Lodge organized guided hiking, mountain biking and horse riding along with cooking demonstrations and clay bird shooting.
During the day and in the evening we retired to the Lodge to enjoy the log fire lively chat about the days events and excellent cuisine.
As a sporting Lodge there is the opportunity to partake in back country fly fishing, deer stalking and pheasant shooting in season.
Whatever your reason for travelling to Poronui, you will be made to feel part of their family whilst having the opportunity to pursue your passion on a beautiful estate far away from the rush of everyday life.

We had the honor to be guests at Poronui Lodge for 4 nights. My husband and I took part in the hunting that Poronui has to offer. What an amazing experience to be paired with such a wonderful hunting guide like, Mark. He went above and beyond to make our experience the best vacation and hunting experience we have ever had. Not only was the hunting an amazing experience in their beautiful breathtaking countryside, but the whole staff is 5 star in my book. The food was absolutely delicious and the wine overflowed. There were always wonderful baked goods to snack on between beautiful meals. Our room was always fresh and clean. The accommodations were perfect. I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for an overall wonderful stay and play vacation!

My wife and I stayed in 3 first class lodges during our 2 week stay in NZ and Poronui was our favorite among excellent competition. The physical accommodations are first rate, the food is simple but beautifully prepared using outstanding ingredients and the entire staff is fabulous. They went above and beyond to make our stay as pleasant as possible. If we get the chance to revisit NZ we will definitely return to Poronui.

Room tip: Driving from Auckland airport to Poronui is very pleasant alternative to flying to Taupo and then driving the remainder of the way.

Poronui Lodge was one of the most incredible experiences. My husband and I travel extensively and we had the opportunity take a 3 day weekend from our intense working schedule and were looking for rest. I happened upon Poronui Lodge and it had availability. I was in luck. We do not hunt, fish or horse ride but the location and the idea of sharing dinner with others etc., appealed. Off we went and boy we were blown away. The location, the food, and more importantly the staff and the service were as perfect and as excellent as you could ever wish to have. We want to say the biggest biggest thank you to CLAIRE, BEN & LISA who made our stay so exceptional. We will be back. We loved every single moment of our experience, including the Safari Camp night ! 100/100.
