Fodor's Review

This hillside hideaway, managed by the international Accor hotel chain, nestles in native bushland on Pauanui Beach, at the seaward end of Tairua Harbor. Timber chalets are furnished with a designer's flair. Sliding glass doors lead to a balcony perched among the treetops. The Miha Restaurant and bar describes its menu as "Pacific Rim with a modern European twist," covering all bases; the elegant interior or casual alfresco spaces are a delight. If you tire of the adjacent beach, guest facilities include a swimming pool and hot tub, gym, and tennis court, plus they have bikes to hire and there's an international 18-hole golf course down the road. The turnoff to Pauanui from State Highway 25 is about 6 km (4 miles) south of Tairua.
