Boutique Accommodation near Paihia – A Place of Rest and Healing

Kia Ora! Nau mai, Haere mai…

We, Martin and Adilson, are your hosts at Te Awa Lodge near Paihia. Proud to call the beautiful Bay of Islands home, we love sharing our special place with guests from all over the globe. We pride ourselves on the high level of care we provide, and we’ll do everything we can to make your stay in Northland memorable.

Our name, Te Awa, is a Māori term that translates as the river. It acknowledges the Waitangi River whose gentle cascades tumble by at the base of our park-like grounds. As your hosts, our ethos of wellness, connection with nature, rest and rejuvenation guides everything we do.

Our location on the banks of the historic Waitangi River is second to none. The rhythm of the flowing waters is the perfect tonic for recharging your batteries, and our manicured gardens, private boutique accommodation options and the wonderful swimming pool offer an ideal environment for visitors who are seeking something special.

When you arrive as our guest, we welcome you with complimentary beverages. This is our opportunity to get to know you and your needs a little better. We are happy to offer you as much or as little assistance as required to make your stay as positive and enjoyable as can be.

Boutique accommodation options

Each of our self-contained luxury suites are well appointed and private, offering you unique and uninterrupted native bush and river views. The suites are designed with your comfort in mind, offering privacy and luxurious comfort for your stay at Te Awa Lodge. A homemade continental breakfast will be prepared for every day of your stay, made with pure and natural locally sourced ingredients.

Whether you are here for relaxation, an action-packed holiday or perhaps a bit of both, we look forward to welcoming you at Te Awa Lodge.
