Wharekauhau Country Estate is based on a working sheep station overlooking the spectacular Palliser Bay where guests can choose from a smorgasbord of outdoor activities or simply indulge in splendid luxury, superb local wines and irresistible cuisine.
Wharekauhau is recognised as one of the world's exclusive retreats imbued with warmth and character seldom found in a modern hotel, where each perfect day ends in your own sumptuous cottage with built-in views of the magnificent ocean.
Experience the New Zealand outdoors or simply relax and unwind, with guest activities to suit all tastes. Whether you're feeling adventurous, or in need of a rest the choice is yours: sit back and savour the tranquillity, or take on the great New Zealand outdoors.
You could stretch your legs, take a hiking trail through Wharekauhau's 3,200 acres encompassing native forest, idyllic lakes and rivers, farm land, and the breathtaking South Wairarapa coast. Or take a four wheel drive safari, go horse trekking, or trap shooting on their private clay field.
As a honeymoon destination, relaxing resort, romantic retreat, wedding location, spa resort, or virtually any occasion, Wharekauhau provides luxury accommodation offering the chance for guests to enjoy unique New Zealand country hospitality.
