Our guests have been generous in their praise of Waimarama Lodge. We've set out some of the comments we have had from guests and hope they might assist you in deciding if a stay at Waimarama is for you.

The Lodge and its surrounding are beautiful.
We had a party of ten around the beautiful dining table
and there was enough of everything to cater for the large group.
