The Bay of Plenty

The Bay of Plenty is a thriving New Zealand region known for its coastal beauty, native bush-covered ranges and world class golden beaches. Ātaahua Estate is a beautiful base from which to enjoy it – it is the ultimate in design, quality, luxury and comfort and offers you a sanctuary like no other in Aotearoa.

We are close to Mount Maunganui, or Mauao, commonly known by locals as The Mount. Mauao is an extinct volcanic cone at the end of a peninsula and the town of Mount Maunganui which offers the most amazing views of Tauranga. After a hike back down, you can spend the afternoon lazing on Mt Maunganui Beach.

Ātaahua Lodge would be the perfect alternative to any luxury Mount Maunganui or the wider Bay of Plenty accommodation, we have more room for you and your family to stretch out and spaces oozing sumptuous perfection.

Places worth exploring

Within driving distance to Tauranga is The Coromandel - a region renowned for its beaches and misty forests. The Coromandel is everything that a big city isn’t. While staying with us, do a day trip to explore Cathedral Cove or the Hot Water Beach for those Insta worthy snaps.

Is a traditional Maori experience what you are after? Then head over to Rotorua and Taupo, which are also within an hour’s drive to us. Rotorua is renowned for its geothermal activity and Maori culture. In Te Puia’s Whakarewarewa Valley, there are bubbling mud pools and the 30m-tall Pohutu Geyser, which erupts many times daily. It’s also home to a living Maori village and the New Zealand Maori Arts and Crafts Institute, with traditional woodcarving and weaving schools.
