Spacious, clean and comfortable. Small and personable. Fine dining on site. Across from a beautiful beach. Bathroom and show floor very slippery, with no shower bars.

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.

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.
