Te Arai Lodge - Inspired Sustainable Luxury
Te Arai Lodge is one of a select group of award winning all-inclusive hospitality and accommodation establishments offering boutique luxury accommodation only 1 hour 15 minute drive or 15 minutes by helicopter from Auckland City. Surrounded by over 20 acres of ancient podocarp forest and native bush this eco-friendly oasis occupies five acres of land on an elevated ridge with panoramic views across the rolling hills of the Brunderwyn Ranges out to the beautiful beaches and surrounding islands of the Mangawhai coast. Lovers of the outdoors have swimming, surfing, fishing, hiking, cycling and golfing on their doorstep including Tara Iti golf course rated sixth best in the world. Lodge facilities span approximately 750 sq m. The main lodge double entry doors lead guests into “The Great Room” with high vaulted ceilings and a limestone open fireplace. The north-facing terrace extends along the entire frontage of the property with a covered portico and open fireplace and is an ideal place to watch the sun set with a glass of wine. A 20 meter long heated pool sits directly below the terrace alongside the yoga studio with gym and sauna, complemented by a cedar hot tub set into the edge of the bush. Beautifully manicured grounds with raised vegetable gardens provide organic home grown produce for the garden-to-table dining service currently offered to guests. Four luxurious suites provide accommodation for up to 12 guests and as a private residence accommodation can be provided for up to 20 people. This turn-key offering presents potential purchasers with a range of options: continue with the current model of owner operated luxury lodge; continue to operate as a luxury lodge but contract a management company to manage the business; expand the business by building additional accommodation; plant grapes or other revenue producing plants on the vacant land or discontinue the accommodation business and enjoy the property as a luxury home to be shared with family and friends. Purchase price is plus GST (if any).
