Welcome to Patuha

A truly unique location, Patuha is perfect for those wanting a quiet getaway to rest and relax, treasure a reunion with family and friends or simply take in all Taranaki has to offer, only 30 minutes from New Plymouth

About us

Inspired by our families love for native rainforest between the Pouakai and Kaitake Ranges, a dream emerged early on to build a lifestyle retirement offering guest accommodation. Sharing a boundary with Pukeiti Rhododendron Gardens where our great-grandparents actively curated, strong heritage connections to the land and local region has existed over the decades.

The mid 80's saw plans put in motion with our own trees milled and walking tracks created. In 1987 Patuha Lodge opened its doors for the first time welcoming guests from around the world, here at our little piece of paradise.

Nestled down a 2km driveway, Patuha is today on land the fourth generation enjoy. Packages are offered for those wishing to explore Egmont National Park, or for those after a more relaxed time, Patuha Wellbeing Retreats are available where individuals are treated to a mix of wellness workshops, leaving the lodge thoroughly unwound and pampered!

A hidden gem in some of New Zealand's finest bush.
