If you decide to stay with us, you will quickly realise, this area of New Zealand – the Abel Tasman region– has some unique qualities.

A very special place, right next to a National Park with a growing wealth of birdlife returning to the area much of which you will see in our native gardens and surrounding areas.

You may notice that we also support this though Forest and Bird soaps, shampoos and conditioners. As a guest, you can also help at a local level by donating to the Birdsong Trust – which through local residents, businesses and visitors helps protect and restore the natural environment of the Abel Tasman National Park.

‘Local’ is a theme you will see run through the Lodge. We have a strong focus on supporting and working with local producers, crafts people and retailers. Including local honey and jam in our breakfast.

We at Abel Tasman Lodge have attempted to complement the un-spoilt Mãrahau landscape by constructing low impact architecturally designed buildings in natural recycled timbers, with colours of the granite landscape, all with extensive native tree plantings.

Environmentally sustainable practices underpin our operation wherever possible. Leading edge evapotranspiration technology, electricity key tags in chalets, low-level time controlled external lighting, LED Bulbs in all our chalets along with recycling of food scrapes, bottles, plastics and paper products, all contribute to our ‘light touch’ on the Abel Tasman.

We look forward to you enjoying our small part of the world as well as helping in our collective effort to keep the beautiful, beautiful.
