Helena Bay Lodge

With over two miles of pristine coastline, four private beaches and countless intimate coves, Helena Bay Lodge is the ultimate romantic escape.


Situated in the northeast corner of New Zealand’s North Island, Helena Bay Lodge is a delightfully intimate retreat. Here, amidst the sound of crashing waves and stunning views over the Pacific, guests will find a home away from home.


Named after native New Zealand birds, the three junior suites and two villa suites are designed to host no more than five couples (or a private group). Each of the villas is appointed with divinely comfortable beds, handmade linens, walk-in wardrobes and spacious balconies where guests can view Helena Bay, the South Pacific Ocean and its native wildlife, including dolphins and whales.


Foodies will be pleased to find world-class cuisine from celebrated Italy’s Michelin-starred Ristorante Don Alfonso 1890. When creating the Helena Bay menu, Head Chef Michele Martino focuses on age-old traditions of the Sorrento peninsula and the Amalfi Coast, offering guests ‘estate to plate’ cuisine sourced directly from Helena Bay’s on-property farm.
