Within the lush central plateau of the North Island, in the foothills of the majestic Kaimanawa Mountains, is Poronui Lodge. This celebrated back-country lodge offers you the opportunity to experience the very best of the great outdoors, while not skimping on the luxury. Within its 16,000-acres of private wilderness are some of the most exciting outdoor adventures, lavish accommodation, and breathtaking scenery that any visitor can appreciate and enjoy.

As the country’s premiere sporting lodge, Poronui provides visitors a glimpse of the natural wonders that call New Zealand home. Although, world-renowned for its fishing, the lodge offers many other experiences and activities that showcase its spectacular setting. 

The expansive property boasts designated areas for hunting, field archery and shooting. It also has more than 100 miles of roads and tracks that meander through hills, rolling grasslands, virgin beech forests, and crystal-clear streams. Schedule a guided walk or go trekking on your own. Ride a bike or a horse to explore the native bush and wilderness. Or immerse in Maori culture by spending time with the Ngati Tuwharetoa tribe.

After a full day of activities, indulge in a massage, relax in the steam room or sauna, or curl up with a good book. You can also simply retreat to your accommodation and enjoy its luxurious offerings. Choose to stay in one of the seven, private and well-appointed cabins in the main Lodge, all of which feature amazing views.

Perched above the Taharua River, the cabins exude a welcome vibe with their wood floors and ceilings and the cosy warmth of the fireplaces. Bask in the splendid bushland isolation while enjoying creature comforts like plush beds, private bath with hot running water and flushing toilets. Indeed, it’s a wilderness retreat that feels most like a fine hotel.

And while you might have come here to enjoy seclusion or spend quality time with loved ones, you can also expect to make new friends. The lodge’s common areas are relaxing and informal places to share stories, drink tea by the log fire, savour finger food or a round of drinks at the bar. The Lodge’s kitchen is acclaimed for its superb selection of farm and ocean to table menus. Ingredients are locally sourced with a strong focus on produce in-season.

If the allure of camping under the stars is hard to resist, Poronui offers luxury safari tents on the banks of the Mohaka River. Here, you can experience dining under the stars, roasting marshmallows by the campfire, and sleeping to the sound of the nearby flowing river

Guests at Poronui Lodge also have access to the facilities at the nearby Stables, which includes a sauna, steam room, gym, snooker room, and wine cellar. This is also a fantastic venue for private dinners, corporate retreats or intimate special events.
