Glamping in New Zealand

Poronui Safari Camp

A perfect getaway for the fly-fishing enthusiast, the Poronui safari tents near Taupō provide a luxurious base for a weekend of fishing, camping and relaxation.

A unique glamping experience, you will stay in safari-style tents with canvas ceilings. A shower with hot running water is just a short walk from your front door and a full selection of gourmet food and wine is on offer, to either cook yourself or to have prepared at the hands of your own private chef. Slide between the crisp cotton sheets of your deliciously comfortable bed and fall asleep to the sound of the rushing Mohaka River.

With full use of the facilities available at Poronui Lodge, spend your days exploring the area – fishing, hiking and horse riding – or head to the stables to utilise the on-site sauna and steam room, challenge your partner to a friendly game of snooker or explore the wine cellar for a delicious drop to pair with your evening meal.

Castaways Resort

Take in the stunning ocean views of Castaway Resorts’ stunning cliff-top glamping site, or experience the peace and tranquillity of sleeping in the treetops amongst the beautiful native bush of their inland site.

Just 50 minutes from Auckland's CBD, Castaways is just the place for a weekend getaway. Ride a golf cart to your coastal glamping site and marvel at the spectacular views along the coast, or head inland for a tree-top glamping adventure if quiet woodland settings are more your style.

With all the comforts of home available, these sites are well-equipped with solar-powered lights, a stereo system, espresso machine and a fully-stocked refrigerator ready for gourmet, self-cooked BBQ meals.

Relax with a hot shower or spend the evening soaking in a sunken outdoor bathtub as you watch the sunset over the ocean, before retiring to your heated tent and a restful night's sleep.

Ridge Top Farm

A working farm just halfway between Wellington and Taupo, Ridge Top Farm is a favourite in the Kiwi glamping scene. Giving the opportunity to combine a peek into the world of a working farm with a luxury glamping experience, this is an adventure not to be missed.

Nestled into a sheltered spot right next to a beautiful wetland area, enjoy a getaway of up to 4 people with two luxury tents available. A kitchen, shower and bathroom, and dedicated campfire space make up everything you will need for your relaxing weekend away. Choose to cook your own food or have owner, Sarah, prepare a menu of delicious, hearty meals to keep you going as you take the recommended 4-5 hour ‘Glamp and Tramp’ walk around the farm.

Luxury camping at its best, this special glamping holiday will leave you wanting more of the laid-back, country lifestyle.
