Waihōanga Pricing 2020

We try hard to keep prices affordable for all our different groups – be they small writing retreats, large weddings, pampering weekends, yoga workshops, family gatherings, leadership courses or educational groups.

Please contact us for a customised quote as prices do vary considerably across groups. We do, however, offer three group packages, as well as special rates for school groups and winter rates (June – August).

Our Mahi package (work) is well suited to corporate bookings, leadership courses, research and writing retreats, strategy workshops and other bookings for organisations who want a simple, single, all-inclusive, price. This package costs $1100/ night + cleaning + GST for up to 20 people and includes the lodge, chicken and rooster huts, Saddleback cabin, wifi internet, 75″ flat-screen TV, as well as trestle tables and whiteboards set up as needed. Additional guests cost $50 per person per night or $25 per person per day for day guests (+ GST).
Additional extras include: Kāhu cabin, the yurt, glamping and camping, and extended use of the facility outside our standard check-in and check-out times of 5pm and 1pm.

Our Tākaro package (play) is well suited to gatherings of family and friends, smaller retreats and community groups. This package costs $850/ night + cleaning (GST inclusive) for up to 17 people and includes the lodge, chicken and rooster huts as well as trestle tables and whiteboards set up as needed. Additional guests cost $50 per person per night or $25 per person per day for day guests (including GST).
Additional extras include: Wifi internet, 75″ flat-screen TV, Saddleback cabin, Kāhu cabin, the yurt, glamping and camping, and extended use of the facility outside our standard check-in and check-out times of 5pm and 1pm.

Our Celebrate package is designed for groups over 40 who may have many day guests – perfect for weddings and large family celebrations. While we love having these happy events at Waihōanga, they have an additional impact on both the facility, and our neighbours, so we are restricted in how many large celebrations we can have any season. We also require additional toilets and a marquee to be hired for these events. This package costs $1800/ night + cleaning (GST inclusive) for up to 17 people and includes the lodge, chicken and rooster huts and day guests up to 100 people on site at any time. There is also a $500 bond.
Additional extras include: PA and sound system, wifi internet, 75″ flat-screen TV, Saddleback cabin, Kāhu cabin, the yurt, glamping and camping, and extended use of the facility outside our standard check-in and check-out times of 5pm and 1pm. Read more about Events at Waihōanga here.
