Great stay, enjoyed our little chalet especially the fantastic views. Staff were excellent and they provided a awesome packed lunch for our walk on the Queen Charlotte Track, great that you can check out from the top restaurant on your way out.

Looking forward to getting back to Punga Cove
We loved Punga Cove Resort. The staff were friendly and helpful, the food was great and the accomodation was eco-friendly and comfortable. Oh, and the free parking, was a boat on a mooring. The staff are only too happy to shuttle you to and from your boat on their tender.

A nice peaceful place to stay. Not much activities, so you’ll need to plan your days. Great if you like reading. Walk to Furneaux is nice but quite long. No TV’s. No cellular. Limited internet (just two spots on the resort). Quite steep to travel around but it will get your fitness up. All in all a chilled out resort.
