Lake Road B&B - Waikaremoana, Hawke's Bay, New Zealand


Recommended by Lonely Planet, and with a TripAdvisor 5-star review rating, a 5-star Booking.com review rating, and a 5-star AirBnB review rating - this Hawke's Bay, New Zealand property offers a restful rural location, half-way from the picturesque riverside township of Wairoa to Lake Waikaremoana. In addition to your Continental, Asian or full cooked breakfast (including freshly-laid eggs), we provide  optional evening meals (Thai (7 days)) (NZ$50pp (3 courses)).  Discover Lake Road B&B's epicurean delights  (note that the closest restaurant is a 40 minute return trip to Wairoa township).  This location is especially convenient not only for romantic couples or adventurous hikers, but for aerospace professionals and rocket scientists and technicians associated with Rocket Lab's Orbital Launch Site on the Māhia Peninsula, and for professional advisors visiting the Kaitawa, Tuai and Piripaua Hydro Power Schemes, and local farms.

Tri (pronounced 'tree') teaches traditional Thai yoga.  Why not treat your friends to a weekend yoga retreat?  A women's yoga session amongst the garden and forest, followed by a private cooking course for those interested in learning how to cook traditional Thai cuisine will leave you with unforgettable memories - the perfect birthday gift!

Sit out under the inky black sky with stars more brilliant than you have ever seen before, and share travel stories around a glowing wood brazier (outside of the restricted fire season, that is) or a candlelit table.  Wake to the sound of tuis and the smell of sizzling bacon and delicious freshly-gathered eggs.

For corporate events, special occasions, or travellers wishing to come together and swap travel tips and stories - consider booking out Lake Road B&B exclusively and enjoying the culinary delights of the 'Long Thai Table' - (which transforms in the warmer summer evenings into an outdoor gourmet lunch or dinner where traditional Thai cuisine is served under the sunshine or the stars).  Email us for a quote now.

Lake Waikaremoana is considered by many to be one of the most beautiful lakes in the world, and the Lake Waikaremoana Great Walk is a wonderful opportunity to immerse yourself in the crystal clear waters of the central jewel of Te Urewera.  Te Urewera is an enchanted land where the very land itself has been granted its own legal personality through s11 of the Te Urewera Act 2014.  The concept of te whenua (the land) being able to protect itself from those who would do it harm is an intriguing concept - one which resonates with many First Nations peoples and those who have an interest in eco-justice or protection of ecosystems and the environment generally. Consider staying two nights or more, and also take in the Māhia Peninsula (a renowned surfing area), Mōrere Hot Springs, and other scenic wonders of Wairoa district.

Te Wairoa is the world's last best-kept secret - discover numerous activities and pleasant ways to enjoy your stay within the district here.

Please note that guests are not permitted to self-prepare meals in the kitchen. Tri is a renowned chef and as with all chef's, her kitchen is her sacred place (as you will discover if you are partaking of one of her fabulous meals!).

Unlimited Free Wi-Fi.
