M13926 Resort is world-renowned for being small and intimate. M13926 Resort is the ultimate headland hideaway boasting access only by water and prides itself on it’s commitment to game fishing. Family owned for a truly unique New Zealand experience, it is characterised by tradition, friendly service, elegance and activities beyond expectation.
Accessed by water, from the Whangaroa Marina you will enjoy a 15-minute scenic cruise up the harbour, akin to the splendour of a fiord or lake. There is also the luxurious option of arriving by helicopter to the Lodge’s private heli-pad. This magnificent harbour is brimming with seafood - oysters, scallops, paua as well as your preferred fish. Being a guest at the Lodge this is all at your own doorstep - and only 3 1/2 hours drive from Auckland.
All guests receive a warm welcome that always awaits both international & local visitors to the Lodge. The twelve deluxe guestrooms on the water’s edge of Kingfish Cove look directly out onto the clear waters of the sheltered harbour. Fishing trophies from the time of Zane Grey adorn the walls of the famous Kingfish Bar. Our fine dining restaurant is distinguished for the freshest seafood and eclectic wine cellar. We also host exclusive conferences, weddings and special occasions.
