Start your new life together by taking the road to a honeymoon experience of a lifetime
Romantic Retreat | unique & special
Whether you are from New Zealand, or around the globe, the Kauri Coast of Northland, New Zealand offers an amazing honeymoon experience for those looking for something different.
Relax and enjoy the ambience of this historic lodge where luxury is truly etched in history and provided in an intimate and serene environment.
With our 2 & 3 night honeymoon packages, our aim is to help make your honeymoon really special with attention to detail and little personal touches that reflect what a special time this is for you and how we hope you will leave Waipoua Lodge with wonderful memories that will last a lifetime.
With picnic basket in hand, discover the Kauri Coast with its secluded golden sand beaches, walk a cliff top path with breathtaking views, meander alongside a bubbling river or stroll around a crystal clear lake.
Returning to the lodge, relax in the garden, or perhaps meander the peaceful bushwalk before enjoying your pre-dinner drink and canapes and your sumptuous a la carte menu.
Take a guided night walk into the forest to experience the world’s oldest and largest kauri trees, or explore the nocturnal habitat of the illusive kiwi.

Even if your honeymoon plans only allow time to spend one night at Waipoua Lodge ………
“We cannot say enough to express our gratitude to Ian & Fran for the night that we have spent in this truly magnificent establishment. The level of hospitality that we received was beyond any expectation and has truly made this night of our honeymoon one of the most memorable. We appreciate all of the little extras that they did to make our stay special and we look forward to the day that we may return.”

Thank you so very much for having us to stay in your beautiful lodge – we really loved sipping port whilst getting to know you and the area a bit better. A really perfect place for us to spend part of our honeymoon whilst getting a better taste of cultural NZ. We’ll be in touch and certainly recommend your accommodation to others. Much love x
Thank you so much for a fantastic stay! This was definitely a highlight of our honeymoon. The Calf Pen was lovely and the food was simply amazing – sorry for being a tricky vegetarian! Your hospitality was the best we found all across New Zealand and we’ll remember our stay here for years to come.
We had a fabulous 2 nights stay – wish it was longer! Fran’s cooking was simply superb – in fact I am sure we have put on a few kilos! Thank you for looking after us and making our honeymoon stay ‘special’
Thank you so much for this wonderful evening and night. It was the loveliest way to finish our honeymoon and we were really moved by all the little things you did to make our stay unforgettable. Thank you Fran and “Bravo” for the dinner!
Thank you so much – we came for a 2 day honeymoon relaxation and found heaven. Definitely one of the most beautiful places we’ve ever been in, and the most wonderful stay. Thank you for all your help, in everything we needed – all with the biggest smile! We hope we will be back soon – it’s absolutely worth the flight !

A couple of brilliant nights at Waipoua Lodge for our honeymoon. So many enjoyable surprises and the food just amazing. Ian you are a great host and we really enjoyed sharing your knowledge of the forest. The Kauri Coast and especially Waipoua Lodge is a real treat. We cannot wait to tell everyone about our stay and relaxing time post wedding. Forever grateful – thank you.
Thank you for sharing with us part of our dream and for the sound of silence
