G’day, Willkommen, Bienvenido, Welcome to Awatea Tasman Bay

However you say Haere Mai!

Welcome to one of the prettiest views in New Zealand – overlooking the beautiful Motueka River and out across Tasman Bay. At Awatea Tasman Bay’s boutique accommodation we offer you the opportunity to escape the hustle and bustle of daily living, or your hectic New Zealand holiday schedule, and relax in private, quality surroundings, while staying in stylish, modern, boutique accommodation.

Here you can enjoy stunning panorama views of Tasman Bay, the Motueka River and Moutere Valleys, Kina Peninsula, Nelson and Arthur mountain ranges, and across the bay to Nelson – all while relaxing in the comfort of this newly built, custom-designed eco-friendly boutique lodge on 25 private acres of rural beauty.

Awatea Tasman Bay provides the perfect Nelson holiday accommodation base, close to Motueka and Kaiteriteri, for day trips into the Abel Tasman National Park, Farewell Spit, and Kahurangi National Park. And you can easily explore the interesting towns of Golden Bay such as Takaka, our local town, Motueka, and the city of Nelson (it takes about 10 minutes to drive to Motueka and 50 minutes to Nelson).

Wish you were here? You can be; check out our self-catering luxury Cottage accommodation and Bed & Breakfast boutique accommodation offerings and make an online booking. We look forward to welcoming you to one of the prettiest views in New Zealand!

See you soon. Cheers!
