Fodor's Review

Sans Souci is a mellow, eco-friendly spot just a two-minute walk from Pohara Beach, with a touch of the Mediterranean about its decor. There's a small restaurant, and you can arrange to take breakfast and dinner here, but book this by 4 pm. The hand-built lodge has striking adobe and tile construction, wide verandas and a turf roof; the big communal bathroom is adorned with subtropical plants, and the garden abounds with grape and kiwifruit vines and big leafy shade trees.

The rooms are truly comfy, light and airy, and all but one (which is self-contained) share the large bathroom complex.
