Puka Park Resort Grand Mecure Review

This hillside hideaway, managed by the international Accor hotel chain, lies in native bushland on Pauanui Beach, at the seaward end of Tairua Harbor. Timber chalets are expertly furnished. Sliding glass doors lead to a balcony perched among the treetops. The Mihi Restaurant describes its menu as "Pacific Rim with a modern European twist," covering all bases; the elegant interior or casual al fresco spaces are a delight. The turnoff to Pauanui from State Highway 25 is about 6 km (4 mi) south of Tairua.
