Welcome to our holiday home on the beach
Experience the true essence of a kiwi beach holiday in New Zealand’s finest coastal national park. Relax into the rhythm of the tides.
In 1968, Torrent Bay Lodge was a small, simple cottage used for family holidays – a classic Kiwi ‘bach’ that has evolved over the years to offer a very warm welcome in our little slice of paradise.
In the 50 years since, we’ve extended and refurbished the original building to create a blend of Kiwi charm and modern comfort, offering our visitors an authentic holiday bach experience – with hot showers, memorable meals and luxurious beds, of course!
The Torrent Bay Lodge experience
Torrent Bay Lodge has 13 comfortable double/twin ensuite rooms, each named after ships that featured in the nautical history of the Abel Tasman coast.
It’s a civilised place to stay, far away from the hustle and bustle of town. It sits just above the tide line on a gorgeous, golden beach – the perfect place for a swim at the end of the day or in the tranquil morning before breakfast. The beachfront sundeck is always popular for socialising, too.
Our lodge hosts will give you a warm welcome at the end of your day’s exploration of Abel Tasman. Enjoy the sumptuous comfort and informal atmosphere of the communal lounge and dining area, styled in natural wood and warmed by a roaring log fire on cooler evenings.
Relax and recharge over drinks and snacks while your evening meal is prepared. Savour local beer and wine from our in-house bar (extra charge).
Enjoy the company of your group and friendly hosts, or savour some solitude on a barefoot walk around Torrent Bay inlet, or in a quiet corner of the lodge with a good book.
After dinner, stargaze at New Zealand’s famously clear night sky or retire to your comfortable bed and let the waves soothe you to sleep.
At daybreak, rise and shine for a peaceful walk along the beach, or enjoy a well-earned sleep-in before tucking into a hearty home-cooked breakfast with freshly brewed coffee.
You won’t want to leave – but there’s more Abel Tasman adventure to be discovered just around the corner…
