This is a gorgeous property operated by Reinhard and Petra. They provide so much personalized care at their amazing lodge. This lodge was part of our honeymoon excursion and it did not disappoint. It is only a few miles from town so you can kayak and pattleboard in the bay, or go to the local shops and bars in Whangamata.... More

We had an excellent stay for two days in the lodge of Petra and Reinhardt. They did everything to make it comfort for us. Also the dinner two evenings was great. If we come back in New Zealand we sure should stay here again. The service is great.

Surpassed all expectations. Petra and Reinhard took care of every little detail. Beautiful personal meals with matching wines. Left feeling very pampered. We will definitely be returning for an anniversary when the time comes. Thanks from Clarke and Kels

We spent 2 wonderful nights here for our wedding anniversary. The setting is just amazing - so peaceful. Petra and Reinhard are such wonderful hosts and the meals are world class. Wentworth Falls is just a 45 minute walk from the lodge and well worth the effort. We will certainly return to Bushland Park Lodge.

This is a lodge in the Bushlands and is a home built project over 20 years ago by the owners. It has three rooms. The location is close to the Waterfalls and is surrounded by countryside. The food has a distinctly Black Forest German feel to it and it is served with that feel. The rooms are perhaps in need... More

My wife and I were one of the first guests at Bushland Park Lodge around 20 years ago. This was our fourth visit over the years and, as expected, the high standards have not been relaxed: if anything, they have been increased. I can't think of anything - how we were received, the quality of the rooms, the four course... More

We spent two nights with Petra and Reinhard in their cozy lodge in the NZ bushland. The ambiance is clearly Bavarian but there are other amenities that make it unique. The glow worm grotto, garden and grounds and the outdoor candlelit bubble bath for two was a pleasant surprise. The food is spectacular, especially the dinners. The accommodations are absolutely...

A lovely 2 night break set in the bush not far from Whangamata beach. The owners make you very welcome and within minutes of arrival we were served coffee and home made biscottis on the terrace of our Garden Suite.

Travelling as 2 couples, we spent 2 nights in the wonderful home of Petra and Reinhardt. It is a very convenient 2 hour drive from Auckland and although set in a bushland environment, it is also short drive to the beautiful New Zealand coast. The accommodation was very clean and comfortable and very peaceful. A night time visit to the... More

We had three nights away from our young family, and my husband treated me to 2 nights here (also my birthday).

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Bushland Park Lodge & Retreat in Whangamata created its own speciality for a high quality and very personal hosting. The owners "Petra & Reinhard" love to share their passion with their guests for fine dining, glass-art & pure nature with New Zealand "bush & beach". Exclusively only 3 fortunate couples experience this very unique place in the Coromandel Peninsula New Zealand with a variety of attractive features: A private glow-worm grotto just 3 minutes from your dining table. Outdoors, close to the lily pond and with total privacy a "Double Slipper Bath" to gaze at the Milky Way stars with Champagne & Candles. Your "private Chef" offers high class cuisine in the Lodge's dining wine cellar; often on his own created art glass dinnerware. Bush walks to the famous Wentworth Falls start at the doorstep, and glorious white-sand beaches are only a few minutes' drive away. Two golf courses close by. Bushland Park Lodge is not just a stop along the way, but a destination in its own right. ... more   less
