Te Nikau Retreat nestles in the native rainforest adjoining Paparoa National Park and just 3km away are the spectacular Pancake Rocks. A unique accommodation with all home comforts and excellent facilities.

Various cabins, dorms & lodges each enjoying its own privacy being surrounded by the native bush. Fresh bread and muffins baked daily for sale. Beautiful beaches, truman track, river walks, horse trekking, kayaking close-by.

There are no supermarkets, petrol stations or ATM machines in Punakaiki but the Tavern serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. We have a small (wee) shop for food supplies and we bake fresh bread and muffins daily.

A great place to Relax ~ Restore ~ Explore.

Prices are per person per night.
