Ataahua Lodge is a regal Italian-inspired estate perched in the lush woodlands outside Tauranga. Enchanting grounds resurrect the art of the Renaissance garden across majestically trimmed hedges, fountains, and soaring Cypress trees. The stately grounds delineate a stunning North Island retreat for reconnection with the elements, fifteen miles from Tauranga Airport.
Spellbinding interiors present a delectable marriage of contemporary chic refinement and neoclassical prestige. Ambassadorial interiors flaunt soaring ceilings, rounded edge plaster-finished walls, with showstopping artworks and stone pieces invoking antiquity. Divine Hellenic busts and an ornately friezed marble fireplace take precedence in a glorious elongated living room flanked by swinging glass doors and clerestory windows. Dynamic interiors play with dimension, while well-appointed decor and finishes vacillate between contemporary country home charm and old European prestige. An open-plan gourmet kitchen gracefully integrates the beautiful living spaces and two formal dining areas. Free-flowing and airy, Ataahua is perfected in the Italian epicurean tradition offering no shortage of ideal dining spaces for spontaneous or lavish entertaining opportunities. A stately winding staircase navigates to an exceptionally stocked wine cellar exhibiting local and international terroir. Six fantastic bedrooms accommodate sixteen guests with utmost comfort, discretion, and elegance between the primary residence and guest home.
There is no shortage of scenic alfresco spaces delivering all of the North Island's natural majesty. Exteriors offer a veritable garden of delights replete with a sizeable swimming view perched before fantastic pastoral panoramas. Picturesque grounds and ample decks are fully outfitted for all-day and all-night entertainment beneath the vivid sparkle of a new night sky.
