West Coast

Romance

With unsurpassed star gazing opportunities, incredible vistas and oceans of space and time, the West Coast is the perfect place to relax and connect with your significant other.

Explore the ancient landscape of Fox or Haast Glaciar with a guided ice climbing experience, heli-hiking or even an overnight stay in a rustic hut near the mountain's peak.

Or for a more laid-back holiday, paddle or walk up the Pororari River Track, step back in time with a hearty lunch at a historic pub then take the short stroll to the stunning Truman Beach at sunset.

Stay at a stunning eco-lodge for the ultimate in relaxation and luxury, or base yourself at Hokitika or Greymouth for easy access to art galleries, retail stores and restaurants.

Perfectly positioned for guests to enjoy the best of Punakaiki, the 4-star waterfront Ocean View Retreat is one of the best ways to relax and enjoy the natural beauty of the West Coast. A highlight of staying here is enjoying a sunset dinner in their restaurant “on the beach”.
