Kawau Island, or Te Kawau Tumaro o Toi, is one of the largest islands that make up the Hauraki Gulf in the northern part of New Zealand. This jewel in the crown of the Hauraki Gulf enjoys its own micro-climate, which means the weather is mild even in winter. It’s a popular destination for pleasure craft cruising the Hauraki Gulf (only an hour from Auckland); those looking for a relaxing escape in nature; and bird enthusiasts.
Offering a unique destination for corporate team-building, special events and health retreats, Kawau Lodge Retreat glistens like a jewel against the spectacular blue waters of the Hauraki Gulf.
The stunning location has been designed with flexibility in mind; groups can be as active or relaxed as they like when they hire out the entire property. Corporates come for team-building exercises or groups hold health retreats and special events.
The retreat boasts 8 luxury rooms (7 rooms with super king beds which can be split into king singles and 1 king single bedroom) sleeping 16. Downstairs bedrooms feature en-suite bathrooms with underfloor heating.
Olivia, our lodge manager, specialises in team-building exercises and she lives nearby in School House Bay on Kawau, and Marcus is the lodge's very own MacGyver, on-hand to assist with property management.
The property has been completely renovated since 2016 and now includes conference/movie facilities, outdoor lounge spaces, an events area, its own dock, a gym and a cabana bar. There are a huge range of activities available, including row boats, kayaking, fishing and swimming, paddle-boarding and hiking.
The retreat sits on acres of beautiful green space that includes tropical landscaped gardens. Catering can be provided by yourself, or we can fully self-cater from the gourmet kitchen next to a spacious lounge/dining area.
