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 twin single bedroom) sleeping 16. All king rooms afford fantastic views of beautiful North Cove and surrounds. Kawau Lodge also includes a large, well equipped private kitchen with commercial grade Nespresso coffee machine and well appointed lounge room with wood fire to keep you cosy and warm during those cooler months and evenings. The outdoor dining area is situated to optimise the spectacular views from the lodge's wrap around deck areas. All whilst providing a wonderful range of water activities, hikes and relaxation for your special getaway. 

The property has been completely renovated since 2016 and now includes 65" Smart TV, conference facilities, outdoor lounge spaces, its own jetty and a cabana. There are a wide range of activities available, including row boats, kayaking, fishing and swimming, paddle-boarding and hiking. You can also travel via Kawau Cruises to visit some of the other famous attractions on the island including Mansion House and the Copper Smelting station.

The retreat is nestled into acres of beautiful green space that includes tropical landscaped gardens. Catering can be provided by yourself, or be arranged with Nebalicas caterers in Warkworth who will ship it to you via Kawau Cruises. Our native flora, fauna and wildlife is a treat to behold and guests will be delighted to see many New Zealand native birds and fish up close and personal.

Robert Harper

On-site manager of Kawau Lodge.

Rob lives in North Cove and is responsible for the day to day running of the lodge. He lives 5 minutes away by dinghy when the tide is in, a bit longer when it's out so is on hand if you need assistance before or during your stay.  A keen water sports person, Rob loves this area for the plethora of opportunities it offers to indulge in his favourite pastimes.
