First Light Hahei

Privacy In The Hahei Hills

Luxury Glamping Starts Here 
 

Experience waking up with the warmth of the First Light over Hahei Beach and the islands of Mercury Bay. This new Coromandel glamping site is the ultimate couples off-grid hideaway, an easy 2.5 hour drive from Auckland​, the Waikato, or Bay of Plenty.

Perched on a hilltop at the entrance to the Hahei township, the luxury 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. The tent interior incorporates ​rattan furniture and a king-sized bed with the cosiest luxury of natur​​al bedding.

With views like this, living on the large terrace ​with all the convenience ​of a​ fully equipped camp kitchen, it may be hard to leave this spot, yet a world of adventure awaits on the ​Hahei ​beachfront. It is​ just a 2-minute drive or a ​10-minute walk to Hahei​ Village, with the white sandy Hahei beach​ and the ​entrance to the Cathedral Cove walkway just beyond.​ For mountain bikers, this is your dream roll down the hill to explore the ​remote ​coastal paths​ and breathtaking panoramas afforded by the clifftops.

Relax. Explore. Retreat.

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.
