Perched on a hilltop at the entrance to the Hahei township, the luxury glamping tent is privately positioned for all-day ocean views. Backed by the native bush line and facing East for the dreamy sunrise, the ever-changing light and moods of the ocean vistas provide the ultimate relaxed get-away setting near Cathedral Cove.
The tent interior incorporates rattan furniture and a king-sized bed with the cosiest luxury of natural bedding.
Hahei, Cathedral Cove, and the Coromandel coast are a haven for ocean adventurers.
Walk, kayak, or take the Hahei Explorer to NZ Must-do Cathedral Cove. Snorkel and dive in Te Whanganui A Hei Marine Reserve. Take a picnic to a path less trodden, Te Pare Point. Daytrips take you to nearby Hot Water Beach, New Chum Beach or to Whitianga to indulge in some pampering at the Lost Spring Spa.
Or quite simply watch the sunrise and start the days slowly. Yoga, a great book, a long lunch overlooking the bay, a sunset cocktail, an outdoor bath gazing at the galaxy.
Dine in on the deck overlooking the bay or choose to let the local chefs spoil you with brunch, lunch or dinner in nearby Hahei Village - Hahei Beach Café, The Pour House and The Church Bistro all offer seasonal menus.
The Hahei General Store and the liquor store in the village have all the provisions you will need to retreat and relax.
An outdoor claw foot bath is set beside the tent, positioned for taking in the stunning rural views. Along a solar-lit boardwalk, a separate cabin contains the bathroom with a shower, a basin, and a flushing toilet. Luxury bath towels and beach towels are available too of course.
At night, enjoy a glass of wine, watch the moonrise over the islands, and the night sky light up, this is the perfect romantic spot for stargazing.
An experience awaits at First Light Hahei, off-grid luxury near Hahei Beach, for that world-away feeling.
