 You could almost imagine yourself in another era as you step into the warm environs of this heritage lodge
Arcadia Lodge sits above Matauwhi Bay with views to the boats bobbing in the sleepy bay below.

Built in the early 1900’s Arcadia oozes charm yet with all the modern and stylish touches expected by travellers.
Suits on the ground floor offer decks with views to the bay. Upstairs 3 rooms give views to the bay or garden.
Bedrooms are named after the planets that are clearly visible on dark evenings – Matariki, Tautoru and Te Punga feature decks with beautiful bay views

Maybe you’re travelling as a family or with a group of friends. Take a look at the simply charming Arcadia Cottage; just steps away from the main lodge. Choose to be completely self-contained or arrange breakfast at the lodge.
Breakfast is included in your stay at the lodge and an experience in itself. Wander to the sun drenched deck for a generous gourmet breakfast crafted by your hosts. So tasty and relaxing you won’t want to to leave.

A short walk to the pretty historic township of Russell with its boutiques, cafes, and restaurants. Take the ferry across to Paihia and enjoy a day sailing around the beautiful islands of this marine paradise. Or drive to a local vineyard for lunch al-fresco.
