The nights in Wairua Lodge are pitch black – there is no light pollution here, where the Waiatekatanga river runs through the valley surrounded by the thick forest of the Coromandel Ranges. The stars of the southern cross can be seen so clearly it seems you could reach out and touch them. One of the most beautiful spots to experience the starry sky is in our newly installed „Night Sky Spa“.
In the space of two, very intensive working weeks we have completely renovated our existing spa area, replacing the old spa with a brand new one and re-landscaping the area around the spa. By removing a number of trees and bushes we have made the view up to the night sky even more expansive. The redesign has increased the privacy of the spa area while optimising the outdoor spa experience – bringing the stars even closer! The project was drawn up by local landscaper Garth Scott and his carpenter Steve did all the woodwork. Our Swiss Wwoofers Nadja, Vera and Elias also did a great job helping with the landscaping.
