Ratanui Lodge is a gem. The Lodge is in a great location to explore Abel Tasman. The dining room has an excellent chef. The hosts are terrific, provide guidance on excursions and will make bookings. I highly recommend staying there.

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities

Beautiful property: rooms and gardens. Not ocean facing but still a beautiful spot and loved the fact that is was a small boutique hotel with only 10 rooms.
