Stay - Hei Matau Lodge

Waiheke luxury accommodation Hei Matau means fish hook in Maori. It symbolizes prosperity, as fish were so plentiful to Maori that simple ownership of a fishhook meant prosperity. The Hei Matau also represents strength, determination and good health as well as providing a safe journey over water. When you stay at Hei Matau Lodge you are the pampered guest in a world class luxury beach house. Your experience will include the perfect combination of stunning sea views, casual luxury and genuine kiwi hospitality.

Set in 7 ½ acres of grounds with extensive native planting, Hei Matau has direct beach access to a secluded bay. However, it is only five minutes by car to the passenger ferry at Matiatia and to the main island settlement of Oneroa. Hei Matau and your hosts Peter and Fiona have everything available on site to provide for your relaxing holiday.

All our rooms are totally private with magical sea and countryside views and with ensuite bathrooms and dressing areas.
