“At the very edge of the Pacific Ocean, a haven of charm and elegance where memories are waiting to be made.”
In the northeast corner of New Zealand’s North Island lies Helena Bay Lodge. This luxury lodge features three kilometres of pristine coastline, four private beaches and many intimate coves. Helena Bay has brought the celebrated Ristorante Don Alfonso 1890 of southern Italy to New Zealand. Under the direction and influence of Don Alfonso’s philosophy of respecting food culture, the kitchen incorporates the age-old traditions of Sorrento and the Amalfi Coast. The property offers a wide range of activities including kayaking, fishing, farm tours and bicycles. Its 800 acres combine a mix of forestry and open paddocks; and with miles of tracks there is plenty to explore.
