Owners Bill and Loraine Muir built Kuaotunu Bay Lodge themselves, replanting the site extensively with native trees. They have been on the Coromandel Peninsula since the 1970s and are are committed to promoting sustainable tourism.
A peaceful spot
Kuaotunu Bay Lodge is a hosted boutique B&B with three guest rooms and a self-contained studio, located in a very peaceful spot overlooking the ocean on the northern Coromandel Peninsula. The spacious rooms have ensuites and private decks from which you can enjoy the beautiful sunsets or wander through the garden to the beach. All rooms also have free wifi internet connection.
They endeavour to have as little impact on the environment as possible. This includes recycling, energy efficient lighting and the use of local suppliers. The energy efficient boiler uses wood which has dried for two years and is able to supply underfloor heating to all rooms and the water heating for the guest rooms without the use of electricity. All rain water is collected and filtered and is safe to drink throughout the house. The 3 stage waste water system is able to pump all grey water back on to the planting around the property.
Jutting into the South Pacific is a narrow finger of the North Island that offers such peace, solitude and surprising diversity that it is easy to forget that the Coromandel Peninsula is only a couple of hours from the nation’s largest city, Auckland.
The lifestyle on the Coromandel is relaxed, the climate and beaches here rival those of the Bay of Islands and the range of attractions and activities is as varied as the peninsula’s geography.
One day you can be walking through the mighty kauri forests of the rugged Coromandel Range and the next you can be kayaking in the sparkling waters of the stunning Pacific coastline.
You could spend your morning exploring a 19th century goldmine, enjoy a fabulous lunch of fresh local seafood and then in the afternoon enjoy some truly unique self-pampering at Hot Water Beach.
How many places do you know where you can just turn up at the beach, dig a hole in the sand and enjoy a long relaxing soak as your own private spa bath fills up with hot natural spring water?
