Surrounded by 25 acres of native bushland, this secluded resort is located on New Zealand’s stunning Coromandel Peninsula and combines a striking natural setting with personal service. Beautiful room, location and facilities like the Spa, Sauna and Pool
Puka Heights is located within a natural bush setting on Mount Pauanui and offers a 180 degree view over Pauanui, the Pacific Ocean and Tairua and the Coromandel Ranges. Tairua is 25 km away. Angie and Warren are very warm and welcoming hosts. The view from the room was beautiful and the room was fitted with everything we could need for our stay, including added extras we didn’t expect. We hope to return soon!
I’m a body boarder and I loved being so close to a great beach. There is a nice cafe beside the takeaway shop. Good to have a Supervalue. Meal at JKs one night. Lovely staff and delicious food. Others had told us it was really posh and we could see that it has lots of expensive houses on the beachfront and over on the mountain in Tairua but also lots of less flashy houses and everyone we met was really friendly. Would definitely visit again if we’re up that way.
Great for relaxation, mainly summertime. Had no options after hours for supplies tho ie supermarket, dairy, etc. There were a couple of restaurants to choose from. Cabana was very tasty, good service, and the staff were absolutely wonderful - offered us water and milk to take back to our accommodation as everywhere else was closed for the night. You could easily pushbike around and the beach was nice. We stayed one night and that was plenty for us.
The road is very winding which can be a bit of a struggle for those who experience travel sickness but the destination is worth it. Beautiful scenery, fantastic beach, small quaint shopping area where you can even buy swimming apparel if you have forgotten yours. Great if you are into swimming, hiking, biking or just relaxing!
The town is a beautiful little place that has everything you would need. It is peaceful and appears prosperous. It is however very quiet and people looking for more adventure will be driving to get it. On the plus side, Pauanui is situated in a point on the Coromandel that makes it easy to get everywhere.
Such a clean environment. Quite yet so much fun to have. You cant get lost. We spent all our time at The beach which is beautiful and our fav place to hang plus everyone we walked pass always said hello. Contemplating on buying property here within the next year as I like to call Pauanui a second home for us.
All beach areas were excellent with plenty of space. We also used the passenger ferry to go to Taurus and went on a beautiful walk along the water’s edge to the shopping area. We went to a shop called Heaven and Earth where amazing valuable stones and jewellery were on display for purchase. This store was very educational and should not be missed by tourists. In Paunanui we ate at JK’s and Puka Park Resort both were very good. Puka Park was more expensive but the evening meal was excellent. It was very easy to get around Pauanui.
Once again an awesome stay, this is our go to place to stay in Pauanui. Absolutely love it. Comfortable, flash and best of all no cleaning needed afterwards, just pop the dishwasher on and off we go. Just across the way from the surf club. A stunning venue and holiday destination.
Had a lovely stay at this gem of a place! Highly recommend if you are looking at visiting Pauanui. Extremely helpful and lovely hosts who had great recommendations. Very private and close to the beach.
