1st Wedding Anniversary

Perfect romantic escape for our 1st wedding anniversary. Stunning and private location and in room chef was a fantastic way to cap the experience.

Pros: 5 star experience in every respect

Cons: Only disappointment was outdoor pool not being up to comfortable heat

Location: No need to leave the lodge and overlooking the stunning Bay of Islands added to the soulfulness of the experience

Stayed 1 night in Jul. 2018

The most incredible place I've ever stayed. The First Light villa was absolutely beautiful, and the service was unbelievable. Highly, highly recommend to anyone travelling to this area.
