Helena Bay Lodge

In the northeast corner of New Zealand’s North Island lies Helena Bay Lodge. This luxury lodge features three kilometres of pristine coastline, four private beaches and many intimate coves.
Helena Bay has brought the celebrated Michelin starred Ristorante Don Alfonso 1890 of Southern Italy to New Zealand. Under the direction and influence of Don Alfonso’s philosophy of respecting the local food culture, the kitchen incorporates the age-old traditions of Sorrento and the Amalfi Coast. Significant investment has been made at Helena Bay to offer guests ‘Estate to Plate’ cuisine, with menus changing daily.
The property offers a wide range of activities including kayaking, fishing, farm tours and bicycles. Our 800 acres combine a mix of forestry and open paddocks and with miles of tracks there is plenty to explore.
In December 2016 Luxury Travel Intelligence announced Helena Bay Lodge the best new luxury hotel in the world for 2016. In 2017 Helena Bay Lodge has featured on the Travel & Leisure It List and the Conde Nast Traveller Hot List. Since opening the lodge has also featured in many magazines and articles worldwide, including Robb Report, Harper’s Bazaar, CNN, Conde Nast, Travel & Leisure, Luxury Travel Magazine, Vogue, The Wall Street Journal, The Daily Telegraph and many more.
