Expect the unexpected at Wharekauhau - New Zealand's most exclusive country estate. Just when you thought you had seen it all, you find a place so special it redefines the word unique. That place is Wharekauhau (forry-co-ho) - a Maori word which means place of knowledge.
Join the select few who have discovered this remarkable resort amidst a 5,000 acre working sheep station, on New Zealand's dramatic eastern coast near Wellington.
Wharekauhau heralds a new era of elegance and graciousness, without losing the warmth, conviviality and intimacy of country hospitality. Here you can encounter the true spirit of New Zealand in remarkable style.
Experience the solitude of this spectacularly rugged landscape or pursue a fascinating range of outdoor activities. Enjoy the luxury of Wharekauhau's world-class cottage suites and savour the local wines and superb cuisine made from only the finest ingredients.
There is no other place on earth like Wharekauhau. You will find an indoor heated swimming pool, gymnasium, spa pool, tennis court and spa treatments.
Just 10 minutes away by helicopter from Wellington airport and 1 3/4 hours by car.
