A purpose-built getaway for guests looking for a peaceful seaside retreat in Golden Bay.

Peace, tranquility, native birdlife, a sandy beach, native forest and affordable luxury. These are the hallmarks of a stay at Twin Waters Lodge. We are in the north-western corner of the South Island amongst some of the most varied scenery and outdoor activities New Zealand has to offer. Our purpose-built lodge nestles harmoniously on a finger of land between a wildlife estuary and the shining blue waters of Golden Bay. Drift off to sleep to the sound of the sea and wake to birdsong from our resident tuis and bellbirds. Enjoy relaxing on your private deck overlooking the estuary where the view sweeps up to bush clad hills. Join us at Twin Waters and make your stay in Golden Bay truly memorable.

Explore to your heart’s content – Kahurangi and Abel Tasman National Parks, the famous Farewell Spit and Te Waikoropupu (Pupu) Springs are all nearby. From Pohara in the east to Puponga in the west, take your pick of lovely beaches. Or head to Wharariki for the day, one of Golden Bay’s gems, with huge sand dunes, islands, caves and wild water.

You won’t want to be anywhere else when each day ends – Twin Waters welcomes you!
