HANDMADE RAINFOREST SOAP

23Nov

An exciting collaboration came about from a chance meeting at the local market in Whitianga between Debbie & Ernst and the local soap maker Lisa Peehikuru. Since that meeting, Lisa has been creating 100% natural soaps for our guests made from Kawakawa and Manuka (both native to NZ) which are totally hand made, piece for piece, and covered in a «jacket»of felted wool. The plants and bushes that Lisa uses for her lovely smelling soaps have natural healing properties and come from the forests of the Coromandel Peninsula. We are proud of our partnership with Lisa and her Soap+Native collection!

AWARD FOR OUR WEBSITE

21Nov

New Zealand Tourism awards a TOP TOURISM WEBSITE winner every week and we received the award in June 2017. As newcomers to the Kiwi tourism scene, this made us very proud and happy! NZ Tourism especially praised the film-clip at the start, which takes you on a virtual tour of the lodge and surrounds.
