Tips for Families

Every day, The Lodge at Kauri Cliffs welcomes families of all sizes and ages.

Jet-setting generations choose our lodge for the educational, interactive and destination inspired activities we offer family travellers. Once on property, they delight in the convenience of having an attentive, family-friendly staff to curate their experiences.

We offer a children’s menu with classic favourites as well as our chef’s creations sourced from local farms. All of our suites are stocked daily with fresh baked cookies and brownies from our kitchen and fresh fruit is also served in-room daily.

We are happy to provide you with any and all of the little luxuries to make your stay with us as pleasant as possible, including babysitter services, toys, games, supplies and more.

Our accommodations are spacious and well suited for adding cribs or beds for our littlest guests, while our connecting suites and our two-bedroom Owner’s Cottage allows for independence-seeking teens and tweens. Accommodations for nannies are also available.

We suggest that activity bookings are made with our lodge reservations team at the time of your initial booking. Alternatively, you may book activities with our team during your stay at the lodge.

What you and your family will enjoy during your stay is limited only by your imagination, and here is a sneak peek at what awaits you at The Lodge at Kauri Cliffs.



Beach Babies
Three private beaches and an on-property waterfall offer the opportunity swim, snorkel, kayak, collect shells and picnic.

Whether by horseback, bicycle or walking trail, there is much to see on and off property. Of special note, a 900-year-old Kauri Tree lives at the gates of The Lodge at Kauri Cliffs. The Kauri tree is a spiritual and highly cultural site revered by New Zealand’s native Māori people. Let us pack you a picnic of all of your favorite nibbles and snacks to take to our waterfall.

Waitangi Treaty Grounds
The Northland area where Kauri Cliffs is situated is rich in New Zealand history. At the Waitangi Treaty Grounds, the place where New Zealand’s founding treaty was signed, families are invited to take a guided tour of the grounds and be entertained by traditional, Māori cultural performances.
