About Us

Chris and Teara welcome you to Te Whau Luxury Lodge.

Everything about Te Whau Boutique Luxury Lodge has been designed to make your escape a memory you’ll treasure.

The first thing you’ll notice when you arrive is the most spectacular panoramic ocean views.

It’s simply breathtaking. Lush green hills rolling down to golden beaches and blue sea that stretches to the mainland on the horizon.

Locals say it’s the best view on Waiheke.

The Lodge has been cleverly designed so you can experience this spectacular view from the comfort of your spacious suite, whether you’re enjoying complimentary treats indoors or savoring a glass of Waiheke wine on your private balcony. You can enjoy dinner in-house with your classically trained chef, Teara.


A spacious guest lounge, shady decks, and central courtyard provide tranquil settings to chat with other guests or simply relax on your own.

A short stroll takes you to a private beach at Okoka Bay where you can soak up the sun and swim in the clear waters of the Hauraki Gulf. As you soak up the feeling of tranquility, you are away from everything, you are only a few minutes drive from Waiheke’s top restaurants and vineyards.

In the early evening, you’re invited to join us on the balcony or in the lounge room for fresh canapes and a selection of wine from local vintners. You can join us for dinner should you chosoe. And in the morning, greet the day with a sumptuous gourmet breakfast to enjoy at your leisure.

When the sun sets at Te Whau Lodge, it sinks slowly over a distant Auckland city. That symbolism is the essence of Te Whau – the ideal island retreat approx. 30 minutes from the bustle of Auckland. The accommodation is built to blend into the landscape of beautiful Waiheke Island, the striking architecture of Te Whau Lodge is in tune with New Zealand’s natural environment.
