Enjoy restful accommodation under Maungatautari mountain in the Waikato

Join us at our piece of New Zealand paradise and enjoy tranquil and boutique style accommodation. Take time out to rest, rejuvenate and connect with our space and surroundings. Sanctuary Lodge Maungatautari is just south of Hamilton and is also an easy two and a half hour drive from Auckland.

Come and experience

Listen to the bird call from the spa, hear the Kiwi’s call at dusk, delight in the fairy lights of glow worms on a Maungatautari night walk, test your mettle on the full day hike, or cycle the nearby river trails to discover the many moods of the mighty Waikato river.

"Super friendly and helpful hosts. Great atmosphere and peaceful surroundings. And beautifully prepared and presented food. Just all round the best really."
